Diamond and Rayvanny. Diamond and Rayvanny slapped with Tough conditions as new song gets banned

Speaking during a press conference, BASATA’S Executive secretary Godfrey Muingereza outlined a number of conditions that Diamond and his team should adhere to following the ban.

The new song was banned on Monday from being played on any TV and Radio stations in Tanzania on grounds  that it didn't meet the required threshold for public consumption due its lyrics.

Pull down the song

The music regulatory board ordered Diamond and his team to pull down the new song “Mwanza” from all digital platforms.

On YouTube the song is already trending at number one in several countries with over 1.4 million views.

Stop promotion

BASATA has also asked WCB Wasafi and all Tanzanian’s to stop promoting the song on any digital platform, contrary to that they will face more consequences.

Wasafi Festival

The WCB fraternity was also ordered not to perform any of their banned songs at their upcoming Wasafi Festival scheduled to kick off on November 24, in Mtwara.

Muingeraza warned that if they went against any of the orders put in place they would revoke the license for Wasafi Festival.

He added that Diamond must ensure that all the artistes contracted to perform at Wasafi Festival were registered.

“Diamond Platnumz na  hawatoruhusiwa kuimba wimbo wao wa  kwenye tamasha la  na pia hawatoruhusiwa kuimba wimbo wowote uliofungiwa. Kwa upande mwengine wasanii wote watakao perform  ni lazima wawe wamejisajiliwa BASATA” said Muingereza

Report to BASATA

Muingereza mentioned that they had written a letter to WCB management, summoning them to appear before BASATA officials and explain why they had decided to break the law knowingly.

No TV or Radio station

This is a third song to be banned from WCB Wasafi. In January Diamond’s two songs Halleluyah featuring Morgan Heritage and featuring Rick Ross were also banned.

The body (BASATA) listed a total of 15 songs that were blacklisted for airplay on any media station in Tanzania.

“Mamlaka ya Mawasiliono Tanzania (TCRA) imepokea oradtha ya nyimno zisizikuwa ma maadili kutoka Baraza la Sanaa la Taifa (BASATA). Nyimbo hizo zilitolewa ma wasanii na kusambazwa katika vyombo ,mbalimbali ya utangazaji na mitandao ya kijamii.
