Tanzania singer Zuchu has revealed comments by Diamond Platnumz that almost made her quit music.
Speaking during a recent interview, Zuchu stated that at one point Diamond visited a radio station and was asked when he plans to unveil a female musician. To Zuchu’s shock, Diamond announced that he was not interested in unveiling another female musician.
Zuchu noted that Diamond’s comments broke her heart to the point she cried forcing her to delay a recording session with producer Ayo Lizer.
“Kuna siku, actually ndio nlikuwa naenda kurekodi ‘Nisamehe’ sasa nilivofika pale, bosi alikuwa ameenda kufanya interview, alipofika kule akaulizwa kwa nini hana msani wa kike, akasema hana mpanga wa kuachia msani wa kike, sasa wakati anasema hivyo mimi tayari nko pale kama watoto wa pale lebo, unaenda kila siku unamtegemea bosi nawewe akuone akutoe.
“Siku ile Lizer alikuwa na shughuli nyingi lakini mimi alikuwa ashaniahidi kunipa session kwamba tuta rekodi, sasa mda wangu wa sssion umefika, huku bosi ahasema hataki msani wa kike, naunajua kule tulikuwa na mtindo bosi akienda kwenye interview tunasikiliza wote kwa pamoja, so aliposema vile kila mtu ananitazama… Roho iliniuma, nlilia sana,” she said.
The singer added that following Diamond’s remarks, she didn’t harbor any bad blood towards Diamond.
She continued working hard and was eventually unveiled this year by WCB dropping her ‘I am Zuchu’ EP that has received success across Africa.
Currently, the singer is enjoying high publicity dropping strategic collaborations with various musicians across the continent. She is currently flying high with her ‘Nobody’ single featuring Joeboy.
Her amazing work has seen her nominated for two 2020 AFRIMMA Awards; Best Female Artist East Africa and Best New Artist categories.
She is also being considered for a Grammy nomination under the Best New Artist category.
