American Rapper, Lil Uzi Vert, has set tongues wagging after he implanted a natural pink diamond into his forehead.
Page Six reports that the rapper spent the past four years paying for the nearly “10 to 11 carats” natural pink diamond worth $24 million (N9 billion).
The 26-year-old rapper had taken to Twitter in the penultimate week to reveal that he has been paying for the gemstone since 2017.
“I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot for years now . This one stone cost so much I’ve been paying for it since 2017. That was the first time I saw a real natural pink diamond. A lot of M’s in my face,” he had written.
