Diamond has a cross to bear with Muslim fans after they aired their grievances over one of his favourite pieces.
The ‘hallelujah’ hitmaker has on several occasions been spotted wearing a chain with a cross, something that has sparked an outcry from his Muslim fans.
Deeming the jewelry inappropriate, members of Muslim faith are unhappy with Diamond’s cross piece because it portrays the Christian crucifix worn by Christians, yet he is a Muslim.
But not according to the bongo artist. He sees no problem with his bling because it is nothing more than a plus sign to him.
He set the record straight defending his bling and the meaning behind it during a recent interview saying it had nothing to do with faith.
‘’Cheni ninayovaa na watu wanavyonidiss nimekuwa nina washangaa sana,kwa sababu watu wamekuwa wanazungumza kile wasichokijua kabisa.kwangu huu sio msalaba bali ni alama ya kujumlisha ambayo ninaiona kuwa haina tatizo lolote kwangu zaidi ya kuwa na siri nzito sana.’’ He said.
