The amapiano star's hit song Banyana Ke Bafana ft Focalistic, Ch'cco, LuuDadeejay and Nobantu Vilakazi went platinum and she also celebrated getting 100,000 subscribers on YouTube. 

This achievement comes after her song Isiphithiphithi went platinum in February, raking in more than 3.5-million streams.

Taking to Instagram, Pabi Cooper expressed her pride in her own record label, Cooper Entertainment, since launching it in November 2021.

“Oh Damn! Platinum girls we up. Went Platinum again, this time in two months under my record label. 100k subbies for YouTube. God is good. Shout out to my team, my friends, the LOML and my family. Thank you for all the support. My supporters? Cooper FC? Omg, I love you guys. This is because of y’all man,” she wrote.

Limpopo-born star Makhadzi also recently celebrated becoming a multi-platinum-selling artist.

The singer's African Queen album reached gold in less than a year. Kokovha reached platinum and Zwivhuya ft Jon Delinger reached platinum. Ghanama ft Prince Benza reached double platinum and Mjolo ft Mlindo The Vocalist reached double platinum. 

When announcing she received 13 plaques for the success of her music, Makhadzi said she was overwhelmed by emotion.

Thirteen plaques. I am in tears right now. All thanks to my fans for always making sure everything I touch turns to platinum.”
