The incident happened when Zuchu who is one of the most sought-after female musicians in East Africa was performing at the Wasafi Festival pre-party on Friday ahead of the main concert that went down on Saturday, September 30, 2023.
The singer who is signed to Diamond Platnumz’s WCB record label has been touring several towns with other Wasafi signees, taking entertainment closer to their fans through a series of events under the Wasafi Festival umbrella.
She is the only female singer selected to feature in Wasafi Festival 2023 Edition.

In the company of Diamond, Zuchu was at one point approached by a Wasafi presenter at their hotel with hard questions for them to respond to.
Asked about her body count, in the presence of the WCB boss, Zuchu responded by planting a kiss on Diamond and stating that he is the only one.
"Mpaka sasa ni wanawake/wanaume wangapi umeshawai kulala nao kimapenzi” read the question which loosely translates to How many men/women have you been involved with romantically to date?
"Mmoja tu (only one)," Zuchu responded before hugging Diamond and planting several kisses on his face and lips.
"Pekeake, pekeake (only one)," Zuchu insisted.
