Tanzanian singer Zuchu has issued a warning that she does not want to be compared to other female musicians.
Zuchu said in a post that no other female artist in the East African country had talent comparable to hers and that it would be unjust to compare her to any other lady.
She continued by arguing that given her songwriting abilities and prowess, she ought to be included in the guys category.
"Don't compare me to other female artists," she wrote.
“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 my pen game hard I could write for a guy and not notice. Releasing two songs this months,” Zuchu said.
Her fellow Tanzanian musicians appeared to have taken offense to her post, as they retaliated online.
Ruby, a singer, responded to Zuchu's arrogant statement by saying she doesn't need to make music every month because one song suffices for the entire year.
“Ngoma zenu 10 kwa mwezi ndo ngoma yangu 1 kwa mwaka. Hayaaa mic mic mic 🎤 🎤🎤Nataka niimbe Tai chi live 🥷😉,” Ruby wrote.
Nandy, on the other hand, boasted in a post after renewing her ambassadorial contract with an alcohol brand that she had been generating millions of dollars with her songs.
“Wow! MUNGU ni mwema mwaka mwingine tena wa kuendelea kuwa balozi wa guiness pan africa and guess what??? wame double the digits!! Imagine unaamka na 250k…. jesuuuuus music is soft oooooooooh,” she shared.
Zuchu has recently been creating and shattering her own records in terms of her musical career.
She currently has over 2 million YouTube subscribers, making her the bigges female artist in Sub-Saharan Africa with the most subscribers overall.
The singer passed Nandy in 2021 and became the first female artist in Africa to reach a million subscribers on YouTube in less than a year.
With the help of her song Sukari, she also made history by becoming the first female artist from Sub-Saharan Africa to reach 1 million YouTube views in under 22 hours.
In only a few short months since being introduced to the music industry as a WCB signee in April 2020, she has been creating and breaking her own records.
