Diamond Platnumz has all the rights to brag. The Tanzanian crooner has broken the music record in Africa, after garnering 10 million views on his new song Waah featuring Kofi Olomide within seven days.
He is the first African to get such views in less than a month.
‘Thank you all for the love and support for 10 million views in seven days and that means a lot to me. I appreciate so much. Thanks for the love,’ he said in a video.
In a post uploaded on his Instagram, he wrote,
THANK YOU. For 10 Million YouTube Viewers within 7 days on our #WAAH! video, my beloved fans🙏🏼….thanks to @koffiolomide_officiel Producer NAZDA @lizerclassic @director_kenny @noelgiotz @moseiyobo @emma_plat @hbaajuni @dumyutamu @tonser66 and all Wasafi dancers and everybody behind this project.
Diamond has mastered the art of staying in the game and in March this year, he became the first African artiste to hit 900 million views on Youtube.
The Bongo Flava artiste, who’s also the most popular YouTube star has always beaten his counterparts big names like Davido, Burna Boy, Wizkid when it comes to music.
His song garnering 10 million views speaks a lot. By him setting the bar so high, which artiste do you think will surpass his record?
Fans across the globe have congratulated him for the achievement and below are their comments;
