Diamond with his new hit song 'Baba Lao' overtook former WCB artiste Harmonize alias Kondeboy who had stayed at the top of trending songs for days with his latest song 'Uno'.

Diamond dropped 'Baba Lao' on Thursday morning and by Friday night, he was already trending at number one on YouTube in his country.

"It is ahit, for sure come Saturday 11/09/2011 Tanzanians will shock the world, the song's link is in my bio (KIDUDE! .....hakika kesho Watanzania tutaishangaza Dunia na Wimbo huu🙏🏼......#BABALAO Full Video link in my BIO☝🏼)," Diamond posted

However, it has emerged that Diamond had to go an extra mile to have Harmonize's song replaced from trending at number one.

Harmonize went to bed when the song was still trending, only for it to be dropped three hours later.

"HELLO...!!! DEAR FAN I WISH YOU GOOD NIGHT 🛌," Harmonize posted.

It has emerged that Diamond had to sponsor the song for it to trend at number one on YouTube Tanzania and number two in Kenya.

This was revealed by bloggers in Tanzania who shared screenshots.
