Tanzanian musician, Diamond Platnumz has shot back angrily at Forbes’ report ‘Richest African Musician’ list where he was pegged at number 28 with a net worth estimated at $5.1m.
The East African superstar made a new post on Instagram which suggested that he’s worth more than that and probably richer than all those on the list yet he was ‘given’ a meagre $5.1m which is an insult to his brand.
To this end, Diamond fired salvos at Forbes for not taking due diligence and research or probably asking him in person with a proof before publishing their final list. Youssou N’Dour is ranked No.1 on the list with an estimated worth of $145M, followed by American singer of Senegalese descent ($80M) and South African DJ, Black Coffee comes 3rd ($60M).
Taking to Instagram, he wrote: “FORBES: next time google me to know what am really worth of, before putting me on your Stupid Richest African Musicians List!!!”
