Bongo Star Diamond Platnumz has condemn   the Tanzanian government for not protecting music investors despite their contribution to growth of Tanzania’s economy.

The WCB boss when speaking at the launch of Barnaba Album says that their  government has  failed completely to come up with structures and policies  that define music investment.

He took a swipe at artists who have ditched his record label accusing them of not honouring their contract obligations  but instead use top government officials and top politicians  to breach the same contracts when exiting.

“Mheshimiwa speaker msaani anapowekezewa si mtu wa kawaida ni brendi ni bisahara Sasa.Mheshimiwa spika ningetamani ufahamu imefikia   wakati Sasa serikali itambue Muziki ni biashara kubwa sana ya mabilion ya fedha …Muziki inalipa Kodi lakini natamani ifike time sasa serikali itambue kuwa Muziki huu ili uzidi kuenda mbali lazima wawekezaji walindwe .. Sasa Moja la tatizo tunalo baadhi ya wasaani tunapofika kilele na fedha zinaanza kuingia msaani anataka zile fedha ale peke yake anatafuta namna ya kukimbia mwekezaji,atampa Kila kashfa,zoma,mwizi,tapeli na baadea wasani hawa wanajificha Kwa vivuli vya mawaziri na Viongozi ambao wanawawekea gadi,’’ Diamond said.

The latest artist to ditch WCB is Rayvanny who was slapped with Tshs 1 billion as an exit fee.

Before Harmonize used his close relationship with former president the late John Magufuli to secure his exit from WCB after falling out with Diamond.

Diamond however, stated that unnecessary beefs between musicians  in Tanzania is derailing music growth in the region.

“Wale wasaani wa magharibi wanaenda mbali sana mimi nataka tusiwe tuna tofauti za kiukweli lazima tuwe tunashirikiana kibiashara hata kama tunakwaruzana isiwe ya ukweli Kwa sababu hatusaidi Sanaa,”Diamond added.
