Naseeb Abdul Juma aka Diamond Platnumz, who is one of the most decorated east and central African artist at the moment has been arrested for publishing “indecent” photographs on social media, the information minister told parliament on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old has been in the news lately, after he shared pictures of himself topless with a female companion in bed. These pictures have been circulated on social media.
“Among our artists, there are some who are starting to spread indecency on social media,” Harrison Mwakyembe said.
“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.
The Tanzanian bongo maestro recently mocked his ex-wife Zari Hassan in a new hit, detailing how unforgiving he gets when slighted by a woman in a relationship.
