Diamond Platinumz has been arrested for allegedly publishing “indecent” photographs on social media.
Tanzania’s information minister, Harrison Mwakyembe, told parliament on Tuesday, “Among our artists, there are some who are starting to spread indecency on social media.”
“I inform you that yesterday we were able to arrest the great musician Diamond Platinumz, he is being questioned by the police about indecent photos he circulated,” the minister said.
“Social media is not a garbage dump of sorts. Our country has a culture,” he said, adding the musician would be brought to justice.
