A list released by Forbes Magazine ranking African richest musicians has elicited a lot of reactions online after renowned Bongo singer Diamond Platnumz was ranked at number 20. Diamond Platnumz is currently among the top artists in Africa and besides his thriving music career, he has several lucrative investments in and out of Tanzania but Forbes Magazine put his net worth at just 5 Million dollars.

His manager Babu Tale has come out to throw jabs on Forbes Magazine over the list. The veteran artist manager and Member of Parliament shared a photo posing with Diamond and said his net worth is more than what was indicated on the list.

He further congratulated him for signing a new deal with Warner Music international record label. Tale, on his part, said that his net worth will be known by the number of people who will attend his funeral.

''Mp and the CEO. My wealth will be known by the number of the people who will attend my funeral. CEO's net worth( referring to Diamond) is not the one indicated on Forbes Magazine. Congratulation Diamond Platnumz for the new deal," a message that was posted on Babu Tale's Instagram page in Swahili reads.

Diamond also came out guns blazing earlier today and lashed out at Forbes Magazine for underrating his net worth. He termed the list as 'stupid' in a hard hitting post that has since gone viral. Kenyan singer Akothee was highly ranked than Diamond in the list.
