Tanzania Government intervenes on Diamond, Rich Mavoko beef


 By Annette Amondi

Tanzania’s music and arts regulation body, BASATA has offered to mediate the growing feud between Rich Mavoko and his former boss Diamond Platnumz.

Their friction allegedly started after Mavoko managed to break free from his contract with Wasafi records after winning a case against WCB he had submitted before Tanzania’s music and arts regulation body, Baraza la Sanaa Tanzania (BASATA).

Mavoko has been under pressure from his fans to quit the music label after claims that he was too big a name for Wasafi records.

In a twist of events however, Basata says the beef is not as serious as is rumored and they plan to hold talks with the two artistes.

The organization CEO Godfrey Mngereza on Tuesday, August 14 revealed the government body was in the process of holding round table meeting with Diamond and Rich Mavoko’s team to lay all the issues on the table and possibly find a lasting solution to the stalemate.

 “We have spoken to Wasafi and the label have no issue with Rich Mavoko. The organization will table a meeting between the two because there seems to be no real conflict between the two,” he explained.

Initially, Mavoko’s issue with Diamond’s label was the fact that there was immense pressure to release hit after hit leaving artistes with little time to handle personal matters
