Tanzanian singer, Diamond Platinumz recently took to social media to blast Forbes for including him in their recently released list of top 30 African Richest musicians. According to Diamond, Forbes failed to do their homework as the networth attributed to him is incorrect. He infact called the list “stupid.”
FORBES: next time google me to know what am really worth of, before putting me on your Stupid Richest African Musicians List!!!
In the list of Richest African artists released by Forbes a week back, Diamond Platinumz is named the 28th Richest African Musician with a networth of $5.1 million. The list also names Mr. P, Akothee and Sarkodie as the top three richest African artists with net worths of $11 million, $10 million and $9 million respectively. According to the list, in East Africa Bobi Wine from Uganda is the richest Musician with a networth of $7.2 million and Tanzania’s Bongo Flava is on second position with a net wortho $6.7million. Diamond is only third in the region.
Diamond’s recent post has however got netizens wondering if he is implying that Forbes underestimated or overestimated his networth. Well, judging from his tone and what his fans are saying, the magazine underestimated his networth.
To Diamond’s fans, he should be richer than that, following sinfirtune sihe cethehad gotten from music in recent years. the African artists with the most YouTube views. But for others, YouTube views alone do not determine how rich an artist is. Check out these comments:
