Diamond Platinumz lights up the internet with a fake American accent

Diamond Platnumz
Veteran bongo musician, Diamond Platnumz, thrilled netizens with laughter after a viral video of him surfaced speaking with a fake American accent.

In the said video clip, the Wasafi Boss is seen explaining to his interviewer why people refer to him as lion alias “Simba” and what drives him to musical success.

The viral video was first published on his Instagram account.

You know how we do men! The reason why they call me Simba is because I’m a tough and aggressive person. I’m a go gerra. Wha-ever I wan, a go gerrit man. That’s the lion’s spirit. I’m hot. Wha-ever I want I’m gonna hunt it. Can come straight to your face and take it (sic),” he said.

Sadly, Diamond’s attempts to speak English with an American accent went south as he became inaudible as he swallowed many words while trying to speak like an American rapper.

In response, Netizens online have since created hilarious reactions from the video and called out the singer for embarrassing East Africa.

@mishi_west: “You are really struggling to speak in English, my goodness.”

@saphiastone.ss: “Is that English or you speaking Hebrew?”

@wamzitz: “Why are you swallowing the English words? Even the teachers teaching in the universities cannot understand what you are saying.”

@vincentokode: “This is the reason decided to stop forcing issues with the English language.”

@_huzzymemes: “Is this the kind of English you use to speak to foreign people? Aisee! I have not understood anything, and all I could hear was dance and lion.”
