Diamond Platnumz is in police custody.
According to Daily Nation, the bongo flava singer was whisked away by the Tanzanian authorities following explicit posts he shared on his social media.
The arrest was confirmed today, April 17, by the Minister of Information, Arts culture and Sports Dr Harrison Mwakyembe, who had also ordered the arrest of another singer, Nandi, for committing same ‘crime’ last week.
“We haven’t remain idle as you remember we passed Electronic and Postal Communication Act (EPOCA) regulations recently and for your information we have arrested a popular musician, Diamond, for posting indecent content on social media,” Mwakyembe told the Parliament who reportedly had queried his office over claims that Tanzanians were misusing the social media platforms.
While it is unclear which video Diamond Platnumz shared that called for his arrest, it is worthy to note that he recently took to his Instagram Story to make out with a mystery woman in a bid to taunt his ex-wife, Zari Hassan.
