Tanzania’s king of Bongo Diamond Platnumz has amazed netizens after sharing a video during an interview as he spoke in an American accent.

Not sure if the star was serious or it was all games for him, but what's amusing is how social media users have reacted following the video.

The  Baba Lao crooner can be heard talking about what drives him and why people call him the lion.

 He shared the video on his Instagram page and fans have made sure to ma\ke him a trending topic.

"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. 

The father of four tried his best to speak like an American rapper, but his efforts hit the wall.

Okay well, let's give him a 5 out of 10 for the effort.
