The achievement was announced by her record label WCB Wasafi 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 Sound is slowly taking the crown as the biggest artiste in the continent as she slowly joins the league of other major stars such as Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade.

The Bongo star 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.

Zuchu 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.

The ‘Sukari’ hitmaker had come out boldly saying that her songwriting prowess should only be compared to male artists in the region.

Through a tweet, the Fire singer said she believes female artists cannot match up to her skills.

“Niwashukuru Wazazi wangu ni kwa ajili yenu na Uwezo wa m/mungu tu. Kwa uandishi wangu yafaa kuwekwa kwenye ligi za wanaume wadada wenzangu ntawaonea tu respectfully,” she wrote.

She further stated that she will release two songs before the end of the year, hinting that she has penned lyrics for some male musicians.

“My pen game hard I could write for a guy and not notice…releasing two songs this month,” she added.

Zuchu made it to the limelight with the release of the ‘Sukari’ song which made history by clocking 1 million views in 22 hours. The song now stands at over 45 million views. She also became the first female artiste in East Africa to receive the YouTube gold play button for garnering 1 million subscribers.
