Tanzanian songstress Zuchu has hit yet another milestone on Instagram as she has hit 5 million followers, becoming the most followed female artiste on the platform in East Africa.

The achievement by the singer was announced by her record label who sent its gratitude to her fans for the big win.

wcb_wasafi Thank You For 5M Followers On @instagram 👏” the message read on Instagram.

Zuchu, whose real name is Zuhura Othman Soud, is gradually establishing herself as one of the biggest artistes on the continent as she slowly joins the league of other major stars such as Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade.

She also boasts of having a huge following on the YouTube platform in the region with over 2 million having subscribed to her channel, making it the 4th most subscribed channel in the region.

She comes after her boss Diamond Platnumz, who has 7 million subscribers, former WCB Wasafi signee and Next Level Music CEO, Raymond Shaban Mwakyusa, aka Rayvanny, who has 4.03 million subscribers, and Harmonize who has 3.48 million subscribers.

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.
