Diana Marua’s new song breaks record as she clocks over 1 million views on YouTube.
Upcoming artist, Diana Marua has been breaking the internet with her new talent in music. Who knew Bahati’s wife had a talent as a rapper? a lot of people have been wondering what she does for a living and we guess we now know.
As soon as she released her first song on YouTube there were a lot of negative comments about her voice, her choice of clothing as well as her rap game. Celebrities such as Willy Paul openly laughed at her on video as well as her own husband who’s new song has been overtaken by Diana’s.
How do YouTube views work?
YouTube views may sound simple on the surface, but in reality, figuring out just what counts as a view on YouTube can be tough. If you skip through a video but the total time you spend watching is more than 30 seconds, the view will count too. If you watch for less than 30 seconds, it probably won’t. This basically means that a lot of people have watched Diana’s music and whether you’re watching it as a fan or a hater, she’ll still make money either way.
She excitedly wrote on social media:
“Amkeeeeniiiiii ??? There’s a new record broken in KE ?? #1 Million YouTube in 2 Days!!! Now team Diana B! tag one person who started as a hater then after the tag add some ?????? emojis to remind them that what god has blessed no man can curse!!! ? waambie next time wachunge mdomo? na waheshimu wanawake #RESPECTGIRLPOWER ?,”
Her husband also wrote:
“Oh no!!! ?♂️?♂️?♂️ if Diana B! @diana_marua gets 1 million youtube by morning my #adhiambo record is broken ✅ I have learned that joke with everything else but never joke with girl power ??? tumetii my queen ?????? #1 trending #oneday ?,”
It’s hard to know if she’ll maintain the same traction she has now since the banters she has received have also been quite a number. It goes to show just how simple it can be to get traction in Kenya especially when you’re linked to a famous person yet at the same time there are several unappreciated talented musicians. To make the views you simply need to be entertaining and look the part and give people something to talk about.
Diana B also urged her fans to tag other musicians who are struggling to get the same number of views as her.
“They first run their mouth, then they run ?♀?️ #recordset 1st kenyan female artist to hit 1 million YouTube views in 3 days ??? team Diana tag any artist who has been hating but deep down in their heart unajua wana struggle ku get attention ndio ngoma zao zi try kufikia views za Diana B! ???????? #WhatGodHasBlessedNomanCanCurse,”
On November 29 2021, Marua joined the music industry as a rapper. She announced that she would now go by the stage name “Diana B” stating that her fans have known her as Diana Bahati and she wanted to keep things simple.
