Tanzanian top singer Naseeb Abdul Juma popularly known as Diamond Platinumz has been arrested for posting indecent videos on the social media according to a government minister.
Minister of Communications, Harrison Mwakwembe informed parliament of the arrest on Tuesday April 17 while answering questions from a member of the parliament.
“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,” he told the Parliament when asked what the government’s response was to the misuse of the social media platforms.
Mr Mwakwembe has also ordered the arrest of a female musician Nandi for similar claims.
An Instagram post of Diamondz playfully kissing an unidentified woman is thought to have warranted the arrest
