Managing Partner Michael Wildes is proud to announce the approval of the petition filed to secure O-1 classification for Nasibu Abdul Juma Issack aka Diamond Platnumz.
Diamond Platnumz is a prominent bongo flava singer and songwriter from Tanzania. His second single, 2014’s “Number One” was remixed with Nigerian star Davido. His skills on his 2012 Rick Ross collaboration “Waka” so impressed Ross that he cancelled his flight home to shoot more footage for their video. With his 2017 “I Miss You,” he topped the charts while switching the usual mood of his songs. He launched his own television and radio station – Wasafi TV and Wasafi FM – in 2018 as a way to spotlight artists on his WCB record label. In 2020, he became the first Africa-based artist to reach a combined total of one billion views on YouTube. He has been nominated and won BET Awards, MTV Europe Music Awards, MTV Africa Music Awards, and People’s Choice Awards. Since his career began in 2010, Diamond Platnumz has earned over five dozen awards.
Wildes & Weinberg was founded in 1960 by Senior Partner, Leon Wildes. Nearly three quarters of a century later, the firm continues to concentrate its practice in all aspects of U.S. immigration and nationality law, servicing the immigration requirements of prominent American and International firms, banks, industrial, financial, and manufacturing concerns, as well as law firms in connection with the personnel needs of their foreign national employees.
In addition, the firm has a distinguished clientele and has done substantial immigration work for performing artists, directors, writers, models, actors/actresses, athletes, fine artists, art dealers, curators, and literary agents. Most notable was Leon Wildes’ successful representation of former Beatle John Lennon and his artist wife, Yoko Ono in their deportation proceedings, the basis of which has inspired legislation, and has been portrayed in films, plays, and literary works worldwide. Some of the firm’s other distinguished clients include scholar Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks (z”l), as well as soccer icon Pele, Master Chef Jean-Georges and Former First Lady Melania Trump and her family.
Michael Wildes, the firm’s Managing Partner, is also currently serving his fourth term as Mayor of Englewood, New Jersey, is the author of Safe Haven in America: Battles to Open the Golden Door (which draws on over a quarter of a century of his practice in the immigration field), is an Adjunct Professor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York, and serves as Counsel to Lincoln Center and several international/corporate law firms.
Josh has experience with immigration law, having previously worked at Wildes & Weinberg in different roles, including as the Director of Communications, since a young age. He also served as a Legal Intern for the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office of Chief Counsel, as well as for the Department of Justice’s U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York (Civil Division). Directly prior to joining the firm, Josh was an Attorney Advisor in the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review at the Miami Immigration Court, where he was originally hired as a Judicial Law Clerk through the Attorney General’s Honors Program.
Despite difficulties currently being encountered in dealing with U.S. immigration authorities, the firm has maintained an extraordinary track record for success in its cases. The firm’s litigation group has expanded its efforts in filing Mandamus Actions and other Actions in Federal Courts throughout the nation.
In addition, Wildes & Weinberg’s multilingual staff is spread throughout its offices in New York City, Englewood, New Jersey, Miami, Florida, and by appointment only in Los Angeles, California and Tel Aviv, Israel, and are known for their experience and special expertise in processing each foreign national’s case with nothing less than the highest level of professionalism.
