Is Diamond going to be the first African celebrity to contract the Corona virus? That’s the question in everyone’s mind even as we come to reality with the effects of the viral virus. With the spread of the virus, everyone was left in shock as shocking details emerged from the WCB family.

Diamond Platnumz and his Manager

Diamond’s manager, Sallam Sharaff has tested positive for the Covid-19 disease. He joins a growing list of celebrities that include Idris Elba who have contracted the flu-like disease that has sent many to an early death.

Sallam took to his Instagram page to confirm the startling news to his followers saying it had been confirmed that he had tested positive and was in isolation.  “The result came back and I am positive with coronavirus but I am doing fine now and everything is going on well,” posted Sallam

He captioned the post: “Right now I am under observation and my health is good, I am all alone at the ward it is as if I have hired this whole space for myself. I thank the nurses and the general administration for the care they have afforded me since I arrived here two days ago.”

Sallam is believed to have traveled to Europe on March 5 where he visited Switzerland, Denmark and France and returned on Saturday March 14.

While there he announced the cancellation of Diamond’s shows due to the pandemic that was already ravaging Europe.

Diamond has delayed his return to Tanzania by 21 days for the same reason and it remains to be seen whether the WCB fraternity came into contact with the manager and if there will be more cases related to the franchise.
