Government forced to explain why Diamond was blocked from leaving the country

This is why!!

BASATA Chief Executive Godfrey Mngereza, said the artistes are also expected to report to the commission as soon as they are back in the country.

“Utaratibu wa msanii kuwa na kibali anapoenda nje, yaani kutambua wapi anaelekea kikazi si mpya. Upo katika kanuni toka awali. Lengo ni kumhakikisha ulinzi wa haki na usalama wake pale kutakapotokea suala lisilo rafiki. Pia, kumuaga kwa kukabidhi bendera na mapokezi pindi anaporudi ikibidi,” said Mr. Godfrey.

Diamond Platnumz was stopped by BASATA from travelling out of Tanzania as he waited to board his plane at the Mwalimu Julius Nyerere International Airport, for a show in Mayotte Island.

This however, is not the first time the Eneka hit maker has found himself at loggerheads with BASATA, the first instance being when he was arrested and ordered to give a public apology when he shared ratchet videos of himself with different women in bed.
