In a statement sent to the media earlier, the council said the song’s lyrics have gone against ethics of regulations of broadcasting services (Content) 2005.

The Magufuli led government through Assistant Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture Juliana Shonza revealed that the law of Tanzania does not allow a musician to perform a form that has been banned even if it is in a different country further assering that doing that is going against the law.

Speaking on the issue Diamond reiterated that he is not afraid of being jailed because of Bongo music. Diamond stated he is not afraid of anything because his success is owed to his mother and father who supported him until where he has reached.
