Diamond Platnumz has emphasized the importance of health care in a country owing to a past incident when his beloved mother had a stroke. He was forced to take her to India for treatment noting that at the time he did not have a health cover and the bills were overwhelming.
Narrating this to Lil Ommy on Wasafi radio station, he said, ” no one knows this, back in 2013 my mum had a stroke. She was paralyzed. At the time no one knew. This was back before Tiffah was born. I was confused at first. She could not talk, she could not walk and the medical bills were huge.”
He added, ” I travelled with her to India for medical attention we were there for a month and being mama Naseeb she travelled VIP all the way. We travelled only 4 people; Salaam, myself, my aunt and mama Dangote. I posted a photo in India and no one knew what I was doing there or going through. The bills accrued from that were monumental were it not for the music I was doing, I do not know what would have happened. I did not have a medical cover.”
Diamond went on to thank Clouds media CEO for helping him with the air ticket since the bills had a toll on him. “I would like to thank Clouds Media CEO Joe who helped me pay for the air ticket to India because the bills were too high. I would travel and come back, severally due to music engagements. It was so bad I couldn’t afford the air ticket, that is where he stepped in and paid. That is why it is important that the government has provided a medical scheme that covered everyone,” he said.
