Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA) has banned two of Diamond Platinum’s songs namely “Hallelujah” and “Waka Waka” owing to the fact that they are contrary to the country’s norms and values.
TCRA announced the ban on Wednesday after receiving a list made up of 13 songs from the National Arts Council of Tanzania (Basata)
Other banned songs are as follow: Pale Kati Patamu by Ney wa Mitego, Chura and Nimevurugwa by Snura, Hainaga Ushemeji by Manifongo, I’m Sorry JK by Nikki Mbishi, Kibamia by Roma Mkatoliki, Tema Mate Tumchape by Madee, Uzuri Wako by Jux, Nampa Papa by Gigy Money and Nampaga by Barnaba.
The ban comes after President John Magufuli last December complained about erotic music videos.
