Kenyan celebs have turned out in numbers to blast Baraza la Sanaa la Taifa (BASATA) for restricting Bongo stars Diamond Platnumz and Rayvanny from performing or organising any show in and outside Tanzania.
“Just marry @tanashadonna Change your citizenship and become a Kenyan!mHuku hatubembelezimpunda kwa mteremko! Tunaimba ngoma zote! Nyege Nyegezi. Sherehe Kupanda!” posted Milele FM’s Alex Mwakideu.
“As a fellow entertainer, allow me to address Baraza La Sanaa La Taifa aka #BASATA with disgust at this misguided announcement: Art shall never, can never, and will never be curtailed.
“Freedom of expression must be upheld. It is pretentious for Tanzania, the home of #Mduara and #KangaMoko to pretend to be ethical, moral or upright. Their club shows and street shows are the nastiest in our continent, surpassed only by #PassaPassa in Jamaica. Last I checked, there were even cash prizes for the best dancers in their clubs (midnight shows) like those in Florida.
“Kunengua kiuno na maadili ya Uswazi/Uswahilini yatatenganishwa kivipi? #DuhDuh! Wasanii ni kioo cha jamii. Ikiwa mziki ni ‘mchafu’, basi jamii imezoroteka na uchafu!” DNG chipped in.
