WCB boss and singer Diamond Platnumz has led Tanzanian artists in mourning the death of Tanzania’s National Arts Council (BASATA) Secretary General, Mr. Godfrey Mngereza.

This came shortly after several media outlets in Tanzania reported that Mr. Mngereza had passed on, but the cause of death is still unknown.

In his message, Chibu said he was short of words to write on Godfrey Mngereza’s death, noting that a few days ago he went to support the Wasafi team as they did a tour in Arusha.
