Tanzanian music star Diamond Platnumz has hit another career milestone thanks to his new ‘Waah’ video featuring Koffi Olomide.
The video released on Monday hit 2 million views on YouTube in 13 hours making Diamond the first African musician to achieve that fete.
The record was previously held by Nigeria’s Davido whose ‘Fem’ video managed to secure 1.8 million views in 22 hours.
Taking to his Instagram page, Diamond thanked his fans for the tremendous support they have shown him by watching his music video.
“Thank you for the new Record in Africa #WAAH! VIDEO 2 Million YouTube Viewers within 13 Hours, it's more than Blessings...” he captioned.
It is worth noting that ‘Waah’ is Diamond’s first video to hit a million views in 8 hours. Prior to its release, Diamond had set a record of hitting a million views in 13 hours thanks to his ‘Kanyaga’ hit and Tanasha Donna’s ‘Gere’ where he was featured.
The latest milestone is evidence that Diamond enjoys massive following not only in Africa but also world over.
Early this year, he became the first African musician to surpass one billion views on YouTube.
