Magufuli’s government makes u-turn on Diamond, issues rare advice
Diamond is currently on his worldwide, with a show in Sweden
Dr. Mwakymbe has advised the WCB President to avoid using steamy videos to promote his music, as his voice was good enough to put him on the top of world chats.
“Kwenye tasnia yetu ya sanaa vijana wetu wanaimba nyimbo nzuri sana, wana vipaji vya hali ya juu. kinacholeta matatizo hapa ni picha ambazo haziendani na maadili yetu, kuchanganya na utupu ndani yake hivi vitu kwa kweli wafanye wengine lakini sio hapa. Tuchukulie kijana kama Diamond sauti yeke pekee yake inatosha kabisa kumuuza. Ukisema wasanii 10 duniani tuwe wakweli tuu! wenye sauti nzuri, Diamond huwezi kumtoa pale. Lakini huitaji kuuza ukaongeza na picha za ajabu ajabu wanaofanya hivyo ni wale wenye mapungufu ili kuficha ma’flat flat kwenye nyimbo zao Diamond yeye haitaji kufanya hivyo” said Dr. Harrison Mwakyembe.
The u-turn comes days after police had arrested the Sikomi singer over ratchet videos that went viral on social media.
He was later on released and asked to issue an apology to the public over his "indecent" acts.
“Juzi kulikwa na picha ambazo zinanihusu na ambazo hazikuwa nzuri kiukweli, na kwa mtu ambaye ziliwakwaza tusameheane tu bure, na naamini kuwa mambo yamekaa vizuri, nitakuwa wa kwanza kuipa heshima serekali yangu, na kama mnavyo ifuatilizia mambo yangu tufuatilizia pia na hili (As a role model to many young people, not just in Tanzania, posting a private moment was irresponsible of me.)” said Diamond Platnumz
