Diamond received 4 million when ‘Waah’ hit 30 million views on YouTube.
Let me tell you why I am more interested in this story and why I want you to read it.
It is not about 4 million, but rather it is about hard work and determination.
For just one song, a person can earn so much money?
A story of mastery.
Diamond has mastered the art of producing music that leaves his fans yearning for more.
And that is the main reason everyone rushes to YouTube every time the Bongo star releases a new hit.
By the way, if you had no data to watch any new hits from Diamonds, you would end up with an ‘Okoa Jahazi’ to make sure you are a part of history.
The Inama hitmakers always leave a mark every time he releases a new collabo.
Four months down the line, the hit song ‘Waah’ has more than 60 million views on YouTube, making it one of the most watch songs on YouTube.
Who would not want this for his or her child? Making this much money for one song may look easy. Diamond makes it look a lot easier, but there is hard work behind the scenes and so much more.
4 Million was paid to Diamond when ‘Waah’ hit 30 million views on YouTube.
Today ‘Waah’ has over 60 million views which translates to more money.
Diamond is brilliant, he is a true king of collabos, and he knows how to make clear selections when it comes to collaborations.

The Wasafi CEO urged his fellow artist to produce music that cuts across all regions of the world.
He explained, “Views may be the same for two different songs, but that does not translate to the same amount of money.”
