The achievement by Zuchu comes as she has also been nominated in this year’s All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) for different categories including the female artiste of the year where she is battling against fellow Tanzanian singer Nandy, Kenyan R&B singer Nikita Kering, Tanasha Donna, Betty G of Ethiopia, Frida Amani and Rosa Ree also from Tanzania and Muthaka of Kenya.

Zuchu hit the music industry in the region in 2020 being signed to the Diamond Platnumz-owned record label and has seen tremendous growth over a short period of time.

Diamond Platnumz recently revealed that Zuchu would have to pay Sh511 million equal to Tsh10 billion if she intends to leave the record label midway through her contract.

Platnumz justified his sentiments saying Zuchu’s numbers had grown incredibly which was why it was going to require such a huge sum if she intended to leave the label.
