Diamond Platnumz hits 400 million streams on Boomplay

Tanzanian Bongo Flava sensation, Naseeb Abdul alias Diamond Platnumz has once again proven his dominance in the music industry by surpassing 400 million streams on Boomplay Music.

This impressive feat establishes another milestone for Diamond, making him the first East African artiste to reach this level of streams.

The “Komasava” hitmaker previously set records by being the first to achieve 100, 200, and 300 million streams on the platform.

Diamond’s ability to consistently break records highlights his significant influence in the music scene, not only in East Africa but across the continent.

Joining him in Boomplay’s prestigious ‘Golden Club’ of high stream counts are Zuchu and Rayvanny, both closing in with 300 million streams each, while Mbosso and Jaymelody have achieved 200 million streams.

Nandy and Alikiba are also making their mark with 100 million streams each.

These artistes’ growing numbers reflect the thriving music culture in East Africa and its expanding global reach.

On a continental scale, the leading record holder on the Boomplay remains a top Afrobeat artiste from Nigeria, Burna Boy, who has reportedly exceeded one billion streams.

However, Diamond Platnumz’s success isn’t limited to Boomplay. On YouTube, he has amassed a total of 8 million subscribers and 2 billion views since joining the platform on June 12, 2011.

On Audiomack, he boasts 141 million plays, while on Spotify, he has more than 1 million streams.

As Diamond Platnumz continues to break new ground, his journey serves as an inspiration to many up-and-coming artists.

His record-setting streams on Boomplay also shine a spotlight on Africa’s vibrant and dynamic music.
