Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz has revealed digital streaming platforms that pay musicians lucrative money. Speaking during an interview on Tuesday, Diamond urged that musicians should join Apple Music and iTunes to earn considerable money.
He noted that musicians should stop relying on YouTube as the payment cannot sustain a lifestyle.
“The real money is in Apple Music and iTunes. For example on you YouTube by estimating when you go through one million views you get 1M Tanzanian shillings but with iTunes, if you get one million downloads you get 2M Tanzanian shillings. For Artists Apple Music and iTunes are a valuable item,” said Diamond.
However, Diamond called on musicians to work hard to reap more from streaming platforms since music is now paying well, unlike before.
