Bongo star Diamond Platnumz was a topic of discussion for the better part of Friday evening following the premiere of Netflix’s reality series Young, Famous and African in Kenya.

In one of the scenes, Diamond was having a conversation with South African songwriter Nadai Nakai when she asked his age.

How old are you?" she asked. Diamond hesitated a bit then she added "Why do you have to think about it?" 

The Nawaza singer then responded, "No, I'm not thinking about it. I am just untying my buttons. I am 31st.”

The statement divided netizens as some argued that it was scripted while others said English should not be used to gauge intelligence.

The reality show features stars from Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda as they try to balance out their demanding careers in Johannesburg.

Notable faces include Khanyi Mbau (South Africa), Nadia Nakai, Zari the Bosslady and Diamond Platnumz.
