Diamond Platinumz to Start Sports Academy
Tanzanian celebrated musician Nasib Abdul aka Diamond Platinumz has said that he is in serious talks with Cameroonian legend Samwel Eto'o to build a football academy in Tanzania.
A daily newspaper in Tanzania reported that the two are in engaged in talks to kick start the Sports Academy.
"In the past, i thought that venturing in sports business was not profitable but now I see that it is beneficial. In the near future ? I will have my own team which already is trading in the mainland Premier League because I do not want to start from the Scratch," Diamond was quoted.
Diamond Platinumz says he has been in talks with Eto'o for a long time now and he is interested in establishing a football Club since Tanzania and East Africa at large has potential football players.
It is said Diamond Platinumz performance at the recent CAF awards gala increased his desire of building a Sports Academy.
At the same, he also got the FIFA Boss Gianni Infantino on the dance floor among other football stars who enjoyed his music.
He didn't give a time frame for the project.
