Popular Tanzanian singer and songwriter Diamond Platnumz has sparked beef rumors on social media after he degraded the achievements of his colleagues Burna Boy and Wizkid in the music industry.

The shade came after the artist recognized Nigerian singer Davido as the only self-made international star in his Apple music bio.

According to Diamond, Drake boosted Wizkid’s career While P-Diddy helped Burna’s career by producing his Grammy-winning album, ‘Twice as Tall’.

In the bio, Diamond Platnumz bragged that in 2020, he became the first sub-Saharan African artist with more than 1 billion video views, leaping ahead of stars like Davido, Drake boosted Wizkid and P-Diddy protege Burna Boy.

Diamond Platnumz’ shade wasn’t well received by Nigerians who hopped on social media to drag him. Many have asked him to apologize to Wizkid and Burna Boy for undermining their achievements and also for him to update his Apple Music bio with something new.
