Zuchu, a top Tanzanian singer who is signed to WCB Wasafi Records, is the most subscribed-to artist on YouTube in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Zuchu, who was said to have married her boss Diamond Platnumz, is at the top of the list, which also includes Kenya’s Diana B, whose controversial and often mocked singing career began last year. Diana B, whose real name is Diana Marua, is the only Kenyan woman on the list.
Since she first came on the radio two years ago, Zuchu has been making a big splash. She has been the most watched female artist in East Africa for the past year.
Only a few years into her career, the Bongo star has gained 2.1 million subscribers. The only other Tanzanian musician on the list is Nandy, who is from the same country as her. All of the other eight names are Nigerians.
Zuchu thanked and praised her fellow women musicians on her Instagram account.
“Thank you so much this is so unreal. Much respect to all my queens who paved the way for the new generation,” she wrote.
