Zari Hassan and Diamond Platnumz's new reality show, Young Famous and African is rocking the airwaves this weekend. 

The reality show that airs on Netflix was shot in Johannesburg, the city where Zari Hassan currently resides. 

In one episode in the series, Diamond was trying to flirt with South African songwriter and rapper, Nadia Nakai. 

She asked Diamond about his age.

" How old are you?" she asked as Diamond giggled. "Why do you have to think about it?" Nadia posed. 

And here, ladies and gentlemen is where Diamond decided to 'Murder' the queen's language. 

"No, I'm not thinking about it. I am just untying my buttons. I am 31st," Diamond responded. 

Clearly, the Bongo star was so uneasy around Nadia, until he forgot that he is 31 years old.

His answer should have been "I am 31" but meeeeen! This is just Simba doing his thing - murdering English.

Diamond's language barriers has sparked some reactions among Kenyans on Twitter. 

@Bravin - "This reality show has no edits, has no cuts. It's just Diamond Platinumz embarrassing the whole of East Africa Uncut."

@ Nandi - "He's just being real not faking anything, have never liked Simba like i do now!"

@ Kurly cheeks - "If I was Diamond I would only speak Swa..and let them struggle with subtitles.. Manz is really struggling with that English."

The reality show has also given Kenyans a feel of South Africa, with one envying their railways system. 

"You watch Young, Famous and African on Netflix and look at the blue train that Zari and her friends board to Mpumalanga then compare it to our Standard Gauge locomotive from Nairobi to Mombasa and you feel like crying. Bwana hio train ya kuenda Mpumalanga iko ata na jacuzzi."


@ Joan - All I'm saying is, Zari Hassan is the IT GIRL . She steps into a room and without even making an effort, she's already taken over. If you're someone that easily gets intimidated, you'll have a problem with how she carries herself.
