Tanzanian singer  Meja Kunta fakes his death to promote his new song

Tanzanian upcoming singer Meja Kunta has angered netizens after faking his own death through the help of his manager in order to promote his new song.

On Sunday, reports went viral that Kunta had passed on after being involved in a road accident while on his way to Tanga to stage a performance at Mziki Munene concert. The news of his demise was made public by his manager called Gmaker.

However, on Monday they made a u-turn on Meja Kunta’s death stating that the singer is still alive and regrets earlier reports that had announced his death.

Apologies

“Ndugu Watanzania, mashabiki wa mziki wa singeli, na mziki kwa ujumla, wazazi wa @mejakunta_ , waandishi wa wahabari, ndugu jamaa na marafiki, nasikitika au kuomba radhi kwa nilichokiandika jana usiku kupitia ukurasa wangu wa IG. Mejakunta ni mzima wa afya nipende kuwatoa hofu. naomba sababu ya post niiongelee wakati mwingine. kwa dhati kabsa naomba samahani tena. matibabu yanaendelea vizur kabsa. tunashukuru mashabiki zetu kwa salamu nyingi za pole na kuwa pamoja nasi. God is good all the time,” reads a message from G-maker.

A close source to the singer’s management, disclosed to the public that they had planned to fake Kunta’s death, with the aim of making him trend and promote his new song.

The singer is popularly known for his song dubbed Mamu
