There’s an on-going storm online following Mbosso and Bilnass 3 month ban from musical activities and subsequent 3 million fine in regard to the song, Ameyatimba.
Many have since opined that the punishment is quite painful since we are into the festive season with artists looking forward to making a killing through staging shows.
However, another quarter believes that they received a deserving treat for their wayward ways.
According to Tanzania’s creative watchdog, BASATA, the artists had violated the set regulations by being vulgar and promoting gender based violence as stipulated in section 25(6)(j) and 25(6)(f) of the creative act.
In the song ‘Ameyatimba’ which loosely translates to ‘ Being cornered eventually’ Mbosso and Billnass delves on a relationship circus from an urban woman.
The woman takes the men in circles while issuing bouncing dates.
However, the unexpected happens when the woman finally shows up.
It’s what follows up that seems to have landed the artists in hot soup.

The song’s video captures the woman undergoing sadomasochism.
A man is on top of the woman with his hand firmly restraining her neck.
He seems to enjoy his escapade as the woman appears distressful.
“Alitaka kunichukulia poa kumbe mi mwenyewe ni mtoto wa town, mara ooh nakupenda ntakuoa ashaniona boya kutwa kunipiga sound” partly goes the lyrics.
The brain child of the song, Whozu who featured Mbosso and Billnass received a hefty punishment with his ban going for 6 months in addition to a 3 million fine.
Whozu is said to have been served with the prolonged ban for undermining an earlier warning from BASATA.
