A bare-chested Diamond Platnumz was surprised by his record producers last week when they rocked up at his house with a cake iced with YouTube's logo to mark a milestone for the Tanzanian pop star. As he was filmed getting dressed, the year-old was proudly told by his team that he was the first sub-Saharan African singer to get one billion views on his YouTube channel. A post shared by Wasafi Classic Baby! Over the last 10 years, the award-winning musician has popularised "bongo flava" - a uniquely Tanzanian offering: romantic melodies with an urban beat influenced by traditional taarab music from the East African coast.

DJ Edu says Instagram is more of an influencer of lifestyle and new platforms such as TikTok, which allows a second copyright free use of songs, are a great way of getting younger fans. More importantly for musicians in Africa, over the last decade YouTube has allowed them direct access to an audience, rather than relying on TV stations.
