Tanzanian star Diamond Platnumz (pictured, courtesy) risks being jailed after his arrest on Monday for courtessy posting ‘unacceptable’ videos on his social media accounts.
The contraversial singer spent his second day in police cell today Tuesday in Dar es Salaam.
Tanzanian police have launched a crackdown on explicit videos and among the victims is female artist Nandy, whose sex tape with her former boyfriend rapper Bilnass recently went viral on social media platforms.
The country’s Minister for Information, Arts, Culture and Sports, Dr Harrison Mwakyembe confirmed the reports today during a parliament session.
“We have arrested singer Diamond Platnumz and he is currently being interrogated by the police and we want to warn other artists from posting graph contents on social media,” said Dr Mwakyembe.
Diamond had posted a video of himself in bed with his child’s mother Hamisa Mobetto and in another video, he posts a video in which he appears intimate with the woman, apparently aimed at mocking his ex-girlfriend Zari Hassan.
