Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz has become the butt of jokes following his debut on the latest reality show on Netflix titled Young, Famous and African.
Fans of the award-winning singer could not help but notice the grammatical errors he kept on making while trying to communicate in English.
For example, there is an instance where when talking about his age he says he is “31st years old”, instead of “31 years old”.
Netizens could not help themselves by making hilarious memes with a good number of them actually admitting that they are watching the show to analyse the Waah hitmaker’s grasp of the Queen’s language.
