Tanzanian influencer Ostaz Juma has responded to Zuchu after she threatened to sue him for the body shaming comments that he made against the singer and her mother Khadija Kopa.
In his defence Juma claims that the singer amongst the other artists that he mentions, are the ones in the lead when it comes to disrespecting their own parents adding that he is not sorry for the comments that he made.
“Siogopi bali naheshimu, nashukuru kwamba ujumbe wangu unawafikia nyinyi wasanii. Huku nyuma niliwahi kusema kwamba mnaandika nyimbo mbovu mnawadhalilisha wazazi wenu uliwahi kuimba kwamba Khadija Kopa zungusha azungushe kitu gani? Ulichotaka mama yako mzazi atingishe katika mwili wake ni kitu gani? Nyinyi ndio number one wa kuwataja wazazi wenu vibaya na kuzungumzia familia zenu vibaya,” says Ostaz.
He give another example of Mbosso’s lyrics in his song ‘Hodari’ saying that the way he mentions Diamond’s mother is disrespectful.
“Kuna mwingine amewahi kuimba Mama Dangote hodari wa mapenzi.Ikiwa wewe ni mtoto utajuaje uhodari wa mapenzi wa mama yako?” he asks.
Ostaz goes on to mention that the fans only emulate how the treat their parents and if they disregard them then their fans will also do the same.
“Nyinyi wasanii ni kioo cha jamii ikiwa mnataka wazazi wenu waheshimiwe basi mtawaonyesha heshima kwanza na vile mnawachukulia. Mkiwachukulia kawaida basi pia mashabiki wenu watawachukulia kawaida. Mkitaka kuwataja wazazi wenu watajeni kwa maudhui nzuri,” he adds.
The influencer mentions that the ‘Sukari’ hit maker overreacted by stating that instead of taking legal action against him she should be proud of being compared to her mother.
“Na kwa nini unachukia sana kuambiwa umeridhi umbo la mama yako kwani unalichukia umbo la mama yako hupendi kufananishwa na mama yako. Unatakiwa kusema Alhamdhulilahi kama ntafanana na mama yangu basi nitakuwa ni kama copy yake.”
