DODOMA, Tanzania

Tanzanian international star Diamond Platnumz has been barred from performing in his own country.

According to Basata, the regulatory arts board, Tanzania the decision was evoked when the star performed one of his songs “Mwanza” that had been banned a few weeks ago.

Mwanza was banned as the lyrics contained the Swahili word for “horny” and because the authorities considered some of the dance moves in the video to be lascivious.

It added that Diamond Platnumz and another musician, Rayvanny, who also features in the song, had also been banned from doing shows outside the country although it was not clear how this would be enforced.
