Diamond Platnumz will still grace different arenas as planned despite his recent ban by Tanzania’s music regulatory body Basata after ignoring the body and performing “Mwanza” in Tanzanian.
Diamond and Rayvanny defied Basata’s ban and went on to perform ‘Mwanza’ during Wasafi festival at the lakeside city of Mwanza on Saturday December 15th which earned them another ban that prohibits them from performing anywhere.
According to his manager Babu Tale, Diamond’s scheduled shows in Kenya will still take place as planned and fans should not be worried. Tale said they are already in talks to ensure the ban was lifted.
Diamond is set to perform in Embu, Mombasa and Nairobi.
“That is our task. We will reach out to them and see how we can meet halfway. Meanwhile, we will handle the consequences when we get there,” said Babu Tale in an interview with Edaily.
Diamond had to pay a Ksh 400,000 fine after releasing the song as BASATA termed it explicit. Mwanza was also banned from being played on any TV and Radio stations in Tanzania or being performed in concerts.
