Recently, he paid three months house rent to 500 deprived families across the country.
Speaking briefly after visiting the sick young man, Diamond, real name Nasibu Abdul Juma Issack said he saw the news about his sickness via his Wasafi Television, hence decided to come forward and extend a helping hand.
“Immediately after watching the programme, I decided to come here in person and learn from you what you need to come back to your normal life,” Diamond Platnumz said.
