One of Tanzania’s internationally known musicians, Diamond has revealed plans to build a football academy in the country.
The singer who was born Nasib Abdul said that he is talking with ex-Cameroon and Barcelona megastar Samuel Eto’o about the idea.
The 30-year-old musician said he has been in talks with Eto’o for a long time now, interested in establishing a lucrative football club, after a positive change to his views on the sport. “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 scratch,” he stated.
Without disclosing any periods to when the project will begin or complete, however, all indications are that he was going to either get full or part ownership in an already established Tanzanian football club.
