Tanzania bans Diamond’s ‘Mtasubiri’ video over ‘disrespectful’ content

By BEATRICE MATERU

The Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA) on Friday banned the video from Diamond Platnumz’s track “Mtasubiri” from all native broadcasting and digital channels.

Launched a few month in the past, the video, that includes Zuchu, has bagged greater than 10 million views on YouTube.

TCRA mentioned it the video has “disrespectful church choir scenes”.

“In that video, there is a clip showing the two are singing in a church choir then goes somewhere else. That part has fuelled not-so good debate from certain religious people. [It] shows disrespect to certain religious denominations,” reads the assertion signed TCRA Director-Normal Jabiri Bakari.

TCRA instructed all native tv stations and digital platforms to cease airing the video till the 2 artistes—Nassib Abdul alias Diamond Platnumz and Zuhura Othuman Soud finest referred to as Zuchu—take away the disrespectful scene from the clip.

The transfer comes a couple of days after Diamond Platnumz’s YouTube account was hacked. YouTube suspended the channel after the hackers posted inappropriate content material that “go against community standards.” Later, the suspension was lifted.
