VIDEO: Diamond Blames Satan For Cheating On Zari: Police Quiz Him on Obscene Video



Tanzanian musician Diamond Platnumz has been arrested for posting pictures/videos smooching a lady, that authorities say breach cultural norms.

Communications Minister Harrison Mwakwembe said that the images project acts that go against a law that bans such acts.

Police are also looking for Bongo artist Nandi over similar claims. An Instagram post of Diamond playfully kissing two women as a way of getting back at Zari, who had earlier blasted him for neglecting his kids.

It is unclear if these are the pictures that have got the artist in trouble. Last month Tanzania’s authorities banned 13 songs by local artists including Diamond.

It came after President John Magufuli complained about obscenity in music videos.

Diamond Platnumz has blamed satan for tempting him to cheat on ex-wife Zari Hassan in a new hit. In the new hit Kwangwaru, a collabo with Harmonize, Diamond opens his verse with how he can be bitter when aggrieved.

In the video (above), Diamond goes on to confess how he has never understood the biblical saying of forgiving others 77 times, adding that his love can quickly turn into hate.

Diamond, in the verse, blames Satan for his cheating ways, singing, “nipatie vya kitandani, nipe mpaka kwenye kiti, ili asiniingie shetani nawe nkaja kukuchiti.”

The singer cheated on Zari and bore a child with model Hamisa Mobetto who was a video vixen in his Salome hit. In a media interview, the singer – after weeks of denying fathering Hamisa’s child – finally confirmed that Abdul is his son. He blamed the devil for making him cheat on Zari.

He added that he was willing to crawl all the way to Zari’s house in South Africa and seek forgiveness. The blaming of the devil later became a punchline in their relationship, with Zari using it when she finally announced that she had forgiven the singer and was going to Tanzania for the weekend.

How Greedy Men Are Failing Kabaka Radio And TV: We Are Paid Peanuts And It Comes Late, The Bosses Are Running Away With Sacks – Zambali Departure From BBS TV To Nbs Exposes Rot At Bulange



L-R: Joe Kigozi, Joyce Bagala, Kin Kariisa, Zambali and Ismail Sembatya

Buganda Kingdom owned television BBS TV board of Directors are receiving frequent and constant phone calls from Buganda chiefs asking them why their favorite news anchor Zambali Bulasio Mukasa left. 

Sources at the Masengere house-based BBS TV have told The Grapevine that clan heads in Buganda, county chiefs and Buganda kingdom ministers were not happy with Zambali’s departure from the kingdom’s TV to Kin Kariisa’s NBS TV because he was a very big brand who inspired young Baganda to work for their king.

“I was surprised to see the way people were concerned over Zambali’s departure, even the kingdom ministers wanted an explanation from the board,” our credible source revealed.

When asked why the so called Zambali supporters don’t put to task the Chief Executive officer of the television to explain, because he is responsible for the day to day running of the television instead of running to the board, the source said that most of the top Buganda ministers feel the CEO has no powers, and the board members are the real people running the show.

 A senior reporter at BBS TV revealed to this website that when NBS TV approached Zambali, he first talked to his senior friends at CBS radio and BBS for advice.

“I advised my man to go and look for greener pastures, you know here we enjoy prestige that we are working for the king and always see him whenever he comes to office but we are poorly paid. People out there think that we are highly paid which is wrong, we sometimes even spend three months without pay even though they pay after some time,” a very senior journalist at BBS TV told the Grapevine.

He further told us that many workers at BBS TV are frustrated because while they are receiving peanuts, which come late sometimes, their bosses are walking away with bags of money.

The senior journalist gave Zambali as an example saying CBS radio is dying from the inside because of mismanagement from some top bosses.

“All Zambali’s friends told him that if he refuses the NBS offer, he will die poor and miserable like sports presenter and musician Mark Augustine Makumbi and Mukiibi  Serunjogi died, or suffer humiliation like CBS sports commentator Yusuf Baliruno. Baliruno recently suffered humiliation during his illness at Kiruddu hospital when his employers first failed to offer him any medical assistance until his matter became the talk of town,” the source added.

When Ono Bwino newspaper, a Luganda weekly paper ran Baliruno’s story and confession showing how CBS and Mengo establishment neglected him at the time when he needed them most, he was bitterly blasted by his bosses asking him why he ran to the media that he was not helped.

Sources told the Grapevine that it’s against such background and advice from friends that Zambali decided to tender in his resignation letter to his bosses at Masengere.

Our sources further told us that the BBS management tried to convince Zambali in vain. “It was a very hard time for Zambali because he was promised a salary increment, they even promised to pay him on time and a promotion but the man had already made up his mind after meeting with Joel Kigonzi, NBS TV’s chief strategist,” the source added.

At NBS TV, Zambali faces an uphill task of out competing NTV’s new recruit Sandra Nakiwala (from UBC TV).  According to viewership data from Ipsos and other sources, NTV’s Akawungezi news bulletin at 7:00pm beats NBS’s Amasengejje (also at the same time) and Kaliisa has been scratching his head for someone who can favorably compete with NTV’s winning team of Faridah Nakazibwe, Solomon Kaweesa and Walusimbi Frank.

We now wait to see if NTV team that has been boosted with the addition of Sandra Nakiwala will beat NBS TV’s Zambali, Joyce Bagala and Ismail Sembatya.
