Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz has been forced to re-edit his Apple music profile, after a section of Nigerians attacked him for throwing shade at their stars Burna Boy and Wizkid.

The WCB Wasafi President raised eyebrows after insinuating that Wizkid’s career was boosted by Drake while Burna Boy was elevated in the music industry by legendary US star P-Diddy.

In reference to his 2020 success as the first artiste to clock 1 billion views on YouTube in the whole of Sub-Saharan Africa, Chibu Dangote appeared braggish, attracting backlash from Nigerians.

“In 2020, he became the first sub-Saharan African artiste with more than 1 billion videos views, leaping ahead of such stars as Davido, Drake-boosted Wizkid, and P-Diddy protégé Burna Boy,” reads part of the Bio that elicited mixed reactions.

The backlash ignited by the singer’s action forced him to make changes to his Apple Music rofile.

“In 2020, he became the first sub-Saharan African artiste with more than 1 billion videos views,” reads the edited version of the Bio.

It's not yet clear if the controversial profile was authored Diamond himself or somebody in his team.
