Tanzania’s music regulatory board, Basata has banned musician Diamond Platnumz from performing on any show or organizing any concert in and outside Tanzania effective Wednesday.
In a statement to newsrooms, Basata issued a ban notice of unspecified period on Diamond and his Wasafi record label singing Rayvanny for challenging its authority over their ‘dirty’ song ‘Mwanza’.
Basata stated it had no choice but to take stern action on the musicians for continuing to disregard and disrespecting the board’s position on the ‘Mwanza’ song.
Basata had last month banned ‘Mwanza’ from air play in Tanzania and also directed the musicians to pull it down from various online platforms.
It also advised the singers not to perform the song at any gathering in Tanzania.
This was on top of a Ksh400, 000 fine just days after the release of the song.
However Diamond has continued to entertain his fans with the song since the start of his Wasafi Festival Tour in Tanzania which has already taken place in some parts.
The board has also revoked license it had issued certifying the Wasafi Festival.
