Diamond Platnumz Banned From Performing

Diamond Platnumz has been banned from performing in Tanzania after he played a song which the authorities had banned for being s-xually suggestive.

The song Mwanza contains the Swahili word for “horny”, and dancers are seen in a video simulating s-x.

Diamond Platnumz had treated the ban with “disdain” by singing the lyrics at a concert, the arts regulator said.

The popular Tanzanian singer has been dogged by controversy in recent years.

In April he was questioned by police after posting on Instagram a video clip of himself playfully kissing a woman.

The authorities accused him of behaving indecently.

Tanzania’s arts regulator, Basata, said Diamond Platnumz would also be banned from performing abroad, but it is unclear how it would enforce this.
