A few weeks ago, Tanzanian crooner Diamond Platinumz together with his groupmate Zuchu outed their much-hyped collabo dubbed “Mtasubiri”.
However, the song contains a scene in which Zuchu acts as a church choir member who is in love with a singer (Diamond). When he calls her in the middle of the church choir session, she pulls off the choir lines and goes to meet her lover.
This clip has raised dust on the streets of Arusha and Dar es Salaam inviting concern from the country’s Church. The church cried out to the singer to delete the clip but all in vain.
Well, a few days ago, the Tanzanian government through its arm The Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA) banned the song from airing on all radios, TV stations, and all social media platforms until the singer deletes the church clip from the song.
The song in question has already garnered over 10 million views on YouTube which could prompt the singer not to alter it in favour of the church.
It is not the first time that Diamond Platinumz songs have received a ban. In 2018, most of the singer’s songs were banned because they violated the country’s norms and traditions.
