Popular Tanzanian musician, Diamond Platnumz, has been arrested for publishing “indecent” photographs on social media.
The country’s information minister, Harrison Mwakyembe, told parliament on Tuesday.
Since Monday, images have circulated on social networks showing the 28-year-old singer, shirtless and in bed with a female companion.
“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 Platnumz, he is being questioned by the police about indecent photos he circulated. Social media is not a garbage dump of sorts. Our country has a culture,” Mwakyembe said.
