Tanzanian Flava bongo musician, Diamond Platnumz, has sent internet users into a frenzy after a viral video of him surfaced while speaking in a fake American accent. In the said video clip, the Wasafi Boss is seen explaining to his caller why people call him the lion aka « Simba » and what drives him to musical success. The viral video was first posted on his Instagram account.
Diamond Platnumz rocked social media, through a video that went viral, as he spoke in a fake American accent. « You know how we men are! The reason they call me Simba is because I am a tough and aggressive person. I am a ‘go gerra’. A brave man. That’s the spirit of the lion. I am hot-blooded. When I have a goal, it’s like a lion going on a hunt. He doesn’t back down from anything, » he says.
Unfortunately, Diamond Platnumz’s attempts to speak English with an American accent were not convincing, as he became inaudible as he swallowed many words while trying to sound like an American rapper. This finally got the internet users excited and they reacted. « You’re really struggling to speak English, my God, » said Mishi West, mocking the Wasafi boss.
« Why are you swallowing English words? Even teachers who teach in universities can’t understand what you are saying, » commented Wamzitz. « Is this English or are you speaking Hebrew? » wondered Saphia Stone. « Is this the kind of English you use to talk to foreigners? Aisee! I didn’t understand anything, and all I could hear was the dance and the lion, » said Huzzymemes.
