Tanzanian music sensation, Mbwana Yusuf Kilungi, better known as Mbosso, has finally addressed the controversy surrounding his absence at singer Marioo's album launch earlier this year.

In an interview on Wasafi FM, Mbosso clarified that his absence was not due to any personal disagreement, but rather, he did not receive an invitation.

During the highly anticipated album launch of Marioo's 'The Kid You Know' in Dar es Salaam, Mbosso's absence raised eyebrows among fans and the media.

The star-studded event witnessed the attendance of renowned figures such as Kenyan David Moya, Ali Kiba, Fridah Kajala, and even former Tanzanian President Kikwete.

"Let me make things clear, I am not a hypocrite. I invite everyone to my events, and there are people I give first priority to, sharing the details on my social media platforms.

"During my EP launch, I extended an invitation to Marioo and even spoke to him on the phone. However, I was not invited to his event. Among the Wasafi artists, only Diamond received an invite." Mbosso asserted.

Interestingly, despite receiving an invitation, Mbosso's boss at Wasafi Records, Diamond Platnumz, did not attend the event, adding to the intrigue surrounding the situation.
