Diamond Platnumz is currently riding high on his new hit song ‘Hallelujah’ featuring Morgan Heritage. The song started trending just a few hours after it was released.
‘Hallelujah’ was uploaded on YouTube late Thursday September 28th, and 24 hours later it had already garnered 2 million views and was trending 1st in Tanzania, 4th in Kenya and 10th in Uganda (On YouTube trends).
“2 Million Views within a Day…. words can’t express how grateful i am….I appreciate so Much ? #Hallelujah” Diamond thanked his fans for the support.
The Tanzanian singer also revealed why other artistes have been unable to match his success in music. Diamond explained that East African music was experiencing stunted growth because artistes were hesitant to try new things in music.
Diamond stated that if artistes tried everything and anything then they are bound to succeed in penetrating the international music industry.
“Nyimbo hii ya #Hallelujah imenifunza kuwa uwoga wetu na kuto kujiamini ndio unatucheleweshea Mziki wetu Kuwa mkubwa Duniani… pia Umenifunza Ukithubutu kila kitu kinawezekana….Lakini pia Imenifunza kuwa wana Afrika Mashariki tuna nafasi nzuri ya kuweza kuvuma Duniani…. Imenifunza pia kuwa Hata Ukiimba Kingereza ila Nyimbo Ikiwa Nzuri Itapendwa na kuvuma kote Hadi Uswahilini……imenifunza pia kuwa Mwenyez Mungu hana Upendeleo ukijituma, Ukawa na nia nzuri na ukimuomba atakupa…. je wewe imekufunza nini?” Wrote Diamiond.
