Speaking in an interview, Tanzanian singer and Wasafi Classic Baby CEO Diamond Platnumz urged artiste to look beyond YouTube payments because they cannot sustain a lifestyle of a celebrity.

The Tetema singer revealed that Apple Music and iTunes are the other digital music streaming platforms that pay lucrative money to artistes and hence should be looked at as such a valuable investment.
