Diamond Platnumz has blasted Forbes Africa magazine for his “poor” ranking on the rich musicians list, 2021. According to reports, the magazine estimates the artist to be worth $5 million, placing him in the 28th position on the list.
The East African star seemingly refuted the list, calling it “stupid”. In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Diamond wrote, “FORBES: next time Google me to know I am really worth of before putting me on your Stupid Richest African Musicians list!!!!!”
Here’s what the internet had to say;
Dear diamond, as much as every one has Price, Forbes is the most trusted grading and listing magazine in the he world. Google is simply a such engine that draws information from every site linked to the such.

Netflix’s Sweet Tooth Trailer Released
Netflix has released the official trailer for upcoming series Sweet Tooth. Created by Jim Mickle and Beth Schwartz, the drama series is centered on a boy, half human and half deer, who survives in a post-apocalyptic world with other hybrids.
Ten years ago The Great Crumble wreaked havoc on the world and led to the mysterious emergence of hybrids — babies born part human, part animal. Unsure if hybrids are the cause or result of the virus, many humans fear and hunt them.
After a decade of living safely in his secluded forest home, a sheltered hybrid deer-boy named Gus (Christian Convery) unexpectedly befriends a wandering loner named Jepperd (Nonso Anozie). Together they set out on an extraordinary adventure across what’s left of America in search of answers— about Gus’ origins, Jepperd’s past, and the true meaning of home. But their story is full of unexpected allies and enemies, and Gus quickly learns the lush, dangerous world outside the forest is more complex than he ever could have imagined.
Sweet Tooth, a DC Comics’ adaptation of the same name by Jeff Lemire, debuts on the streaming platform June 4th. Check out the trailer and official poster below.
