The Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority has barred social and mainstream media from airing Zuchu and Diamond Plutnumz's song "matasubiri," which has received over ten million views on YouTube since its release.
TCRA claimed in a statement that it received a letter from the Tanzania National Arts Council asking them to halt public performances and dissemination of the film. The restriction was imposed when Christians complained about a sequence in the video's introduction where a choir member leaves the rehearsal setting and walks through a romantic gateway.
The Tanzania National Arts Council told Diamond Plutnumz and Zuchu to make changes to the video and that it would not be allowed to air in mainstream media unless those changes were made. This isn't the first time Diamond Plutnumz has found himself in such a predicament.
