Last week, Tanasha and Diamond made sure that they had ‘secured the jungle’ by climbing up to number one with their hits ‘The One’ and ‘Radio’ featuring Barrack Jacuzzi.
Tanasha speaks on joining Diamond’s Wasafi Records
Tanasha recently released 'Radio'.
“Making sure all the jungles are strictly secured! #THEONE 🇹🇿 #RADIO 🇰🇪 Both No. 1#couplegoals,” Diamond wrote celebrating being number one on the YouTube trending list.
In an interview with Switch TV, Tanasha disclosed that part of the success of her single ‘Radio’ can be attributed to Diamond and his Wasafi crew who guided her and provided honest feedback. They also hyped up her music on social media by sharing it all over their platforms.
“They are fully supportive and I make sure I go through everything with them as well so that they confirm if it is good or not. I appreciate their honesty,” Tanasha said.
However, despite their support, Tanasha is not really looking to join the label that has produced stars such as Harmonize, Rayvanny and Queen Darlene.
“I think that the type of genre that I do compared to Wasafi is totally different. Unless he (Diamond) starts like a Wasafi Caribbean/Hip-hop type thing maybe, but as for now not really,” she revealed.
About Wasafi Records
Established a few years ago Wasafi is known for uplifting artistes from humble backgrounds. Some of its success stories include Mbosso, Harmonize and BET Award winner Rayvanny. And there is a reason why Diamond specifically picks artistes from humble backgrounds; they have a hankering for success.
He revealed that he can’t sign someone from a rich or able family because they already have it all and so they will not fight for their space in the competitive music market.
“Sifa ya kwanza WCB ni mtu aliyetoka katika hali ngumu, maisha magumu kwa sababu sisi tunajitahidi kujiajiri mwenyewe kwa wenyewe. Japo kuwa muziki wetu haujawa na riziki lakini angalau kidogo hichi tule wote,” said Platnumz during a radio interview on Clouds FM.
Simba added that he believes people from the villages have real talent and when they get an opportunity they utilize it with all the energy they have.
“Tunaamini watu kutoka mtaani wanakuwa na talent ya kweli, wanakuwa na njaa ya kujituma na nidhamu kwa sababu wanaogopa wasije wakarudi tena katika mtaa. Lakini mtoto wa kitajiri mimi sikudanganyi wanakuwa hawana nidhamu kwa sababu wanajua sisi tuna hela, kwa hiyo yeye haogopi au kufanya kazi kwa bidi,” he added.
