Tanzania authorities ban 'immoral' songs

BBC.COM
Tanzania's arts regulatory council, Basata, has banned a brand new hit song - Mwanza - by household musicians Raymond Shabaan Mwakyusa, famously known as Rayvanny, and Diamond Platnumz.

The song, which was released over the weekend, is now strictly prohibited from being played on any TV and radio stations in Tanzania.

Basata said the song's lyrics are "encouraging sexual thrill" and therefore immoral.

The regulatory body also warned other artists from composing songs which go contrary to the laws, culture and norms of the country.

In April, Basata banned another 10

songs, including Hallelujah by Diamond Platnumz, saying the song mixed religious messages with sexual innuendo which they found unlawful and grossly immoral. 

Apart from "immoral songs", the commission has also been targeting politically motivated songs, especially those critical of President John Magufuli.
