The high-flying Bongo artist’s real name is Zuhura Othman Soud. She is a signee of Wasafi Productions, which is under the management of Diamond Platinumz, a fellow musician.



Zuchu attained a Diploma in Entry Certificate in Business Analysis (CEBA) from a famous University in India.

During an interview with Wasafi TV, Zuchu said she had to fly back to Tanzania to concentrate on her Bongo music career.

He is the Wasafi boss and a talented Bongo artist. As per the information on social media. Diamond Platinumz only completed his primary school.

Speculations have it that Diamond received an honorary degree from the University of Dar es Salaam not for studying a particular course but for promoting Tanzanian art and culture abroad.
