Diamond Platinumz features Psquare in new song (WATCH)
What a time to drop a song with Psquare considering the drama that surrounded the dynamic duo this past weekend.

The song titled Kidogo had been written by Diamond and the Shekini acts back in 2015 but the video was not shot until April 2016 in Johannesburg South Africa by Godfather Production Inc
The song had productions contributions from Tanzanian beat-makers – Shirko and Laizer and was mixed by Nigeria’s V-Teck.
