Tanzanian singer Faustina Charles Mfinanga alias Nandy has finally received her Golden Plaque from YouTube after her channel surpassed the 1 million subscribers mark.

The Golden Plaque (YouTube creator award) is usually given to users who cross the one million subscribers mark.

Receiving the prestigious award, a thankful Nandy expressed gratitude towards her fans for always supporting her craft hence the huge numbers on YouTube.

“Gold, one million subscribers, thank you all my fans,” Nandy said in post via her Insta-stories.


The Siwezi hitmaker has garnered over 153,725,772 views and counting since joining the streaming platform on July 5, 2016.

With the award, Nandy becomes the second female artiste in East Africa to achieve such a milestone. WCB Wasafi’s Zuchu was the first female artiste in East Africa to clock one million subscribers on YouTuber in March 2021. She achieved the fate in just 11 months of joining the music industry.

Subscribers are critical to your success on YouTube because they tend to spend more time watching your channel than viewers who aren't subscribed.
