“Google my worth before putting me on your Stupid Richest African Musicians List” – Diamond Platnumz lashes out on Forbes’ report

Forbes recently released its list of richest African musicians according to their net worth in 2021. The list, which it said is based on various factors that include endorsement value, popularity, show rates, sales, awards, and YouTube views.

The list is mostly dominated by Nigerian artists including Nigeria’s Burna Boy, Yemi Alade, Tiwa Savage, and Wizkid, with Tanzania’s Diamond ranking number 20 with an estimated worth of $5.1 million.

Diamond Platnumz however, lashed out on Forbes ranking, suggesting that Forbes didn’t share accurate numbers. 

“FORBES: next time google me to know what am really worth of, before putting me on your Stupid Richest African Musicians List!!!” He wrote, leaving out his true worth. 

The list came as a surprise to many of Diamond’s fans, given his recent fortunes both musically and commercially across the African continent and beyond. 

Five years ago, CNN valued Diamond at $5 million. In November 2019, CNN again named Diamond Platnumz among Top 10 biggest music stars in Africa making him the only artiste from East Africa to feature in the list. 

Meanwhile, Diamond and his Wasafi Record Label signed a new 360-partnership with Warner Music, a multinational entertainment and record label.
