A few days ago, Forbes Africa released its list of richest African musicians basing on 2021’s net worth. Basing on the list, Bobi wine represented Uganda in the 16th position in Africa but also the richest in East Africa with a net worth of $7.2 Million. The Tanzanian star Diamond Platnumz managed to get the second with a net worth of $6.7 Million putting Jose Chameleon in the third position with $6.2 Million.
This did not go well with Diamond Platnumz as he trashed the list requesting Forbes to always make enough research instead of feeding people on half-backed information. He asked them to next time google about him before putting his name on the list he rendered stupid.
“FORBES: Next time Google me to know what I am really worth of before putting me on your Stupid Richest African Musicians list!!!!!,” Diamond posted.
However basing on Forbes Africa, the list was not made basing on only music but also considered other factors like endorsement value, popularity, show rates, sales, awards, and YouTube views, and many others.
It should also be noted that Diamond just hit the jackpot recently because five years ago CNN valued him at $5million. This shows how much he has worked to see himself at the top in the last five years.
