Popular Tanzanian and Wasafi dancer Angel Nyigu has opened up on how it is to work with her boss, Diamond Platnumz.
Speaking in an interview, Angel, whose dance moves have earned her a horde of supporters, especially in her homeland – Tanzania, said that working with the ‘Jeje’ singer is not a walk in the park.
According to the famed dancer who’s worked with Wasafi since 2017, she’s always on-toes when working on a project with her boss.
“I’d say it’s hard working with Diamond because I always ask myself many questions like ‘Is what I’m doing good enough?’ When you do a bad job it reflects on your reputation. I’m usually nervous when working with him. It’s not that I don’t believe in my work, but I must ask whether what I’m doing is up to his level. Wanasema wasiwasi ni akili,” she said.
Angel, who featured in the Cheche music video (Diamond and Zunchu’s duet) further revealed that Diamond occasionally advises her and that working with the record label has grown her career devilishly.
“He’s offered me pieces of advice telling me to keep up and that I’m doing a great job. Wasafi is progressive and you learn a lot when working with them- they’ve made me more hardworking,” she said.
Meanwhile, Angel is not the only Wasafi member to confess how difficult it is to work [dance] with Diamond as the new Wasafi recruit – Zunchu had said it earlier.
Zuchu had similarly admitted that it was hard dancing with Diamond during the video shoot for their Cheche duet. Zuchu confessed that she was initially hesitant due to the respect she has for Diamond, saying that it took the intervention of Diamond’s manager Sallam SK to put her at ease.
“It’s so hard to dance in that manner with someone you respect. But I thank Sallam SK, he helped a lot in making me comfortable,”Zunchu said.
