As Diamond Platnumz continues to make moves for Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB) while he climbs higher and higher into Bongo Music’s Mount Olympus, he today made an announcement of the newest signee, Zuchu to his record label.
Zuchu who comes from a musical family of Queen of Taarab Khadija Omar Kopa, first shot to viral fame in 2015 at the Tecno Take on the Stage in Lagos where she challenged her Tanzanian counterpart Nandy and the eventual winner Sapera.
Taking to social media, Zuchu revealed that she has been at the label for over 3 years, getting groomed and trained before she was introduced officially as a member.

It's a huge Honor to finally fulfill My Dream, Na pia ni baraka na bahati kubwa sana to be signed under The Biggest Label In Africa @wcb_wasafi Nikiwa kama mwanamke ndoto yangu kubwa ni kutumia kipaji changu kuthibitisha ule usemi "Power's not given to you. You have to take it" yaani "Nguvu Haiji Kwa Kupewa, Bali Kwa Kujitengenezea Mwenyewe". Na hii ni ili kufuta imani na dhana potofu kuwa wanawake hawawezi bila ya kuwezeshwa. Na muhimu zaidi pia safari yangu katika muziki iende kuwatia nguvu wanawake wote kupambana katika kutimiza ndoto zao. Kwa zaidi ya miaka minne niliisubiri siku hii. Thank you @diamondplatnumz and whole of @wcb_wasafi Management for believing in my talent. Expect The Absolute Best. To All Music Lovers from All Over The World, Ninaitegemea sana support yenu. Asante Mwenyezi Mungu kwa kipaji na nafasi hii, Ninakuomba uniongoze katika njia yenye Mafanikio. #Zuchu #WCB4LIFE
After the announcement, she has released a new single “Wana” which serves as her debut song under the label.
She joins an already stacked roster that includes Rayvanny, Mboso, Lavalava, and Queen Darleen.
Though WCB has yet to produce a female artist with the same chart-topping abilities as their fearless leader Diamond Platnumz, let’s hope some plans are being set in motion to make them a priority.
Even though Chibu Dangote may be running the game, it clearly shows he’s not interested in hogging all the success for himself and always willing to put on new artists.
Listen to her latest single and let us know what you think.
