Rayvanny and Diamond Platnumz Considered Seeking Kenyan Citizenship After Being Banned by BASATA

In 2018, Tanzanian music stars Rayvanny and Diamond Platnumz were banned from performing in Tanzania and abroad by the Tanzanian Arts Council (BASATA). The ban was imposed after the two artists violated BASATA’s regulations by performing a song that had been banned.

In a recent interview, Rayvanny revealed that he and Diamond Platnumz had considered seeking Kenyan citizenship after being banned. Rayvanny said that they were worried that the ban would ruin their careers.

“We were really scared,” Rayvanny said. “We didn’t know what to do. We thought that maybe if we moved to Kenya, we would be able to continue our careers.”

However, Rayvanny said that they eventually decided against seeking Kenyan citizenship. They decided to focus on appealing the ban and trying to get it lifted.

In 2019, the ban was lifted. Rayvanny and Diamond Platnumz have since resumed their careers and are now two of the most popular musicians in Tanzania.

The ban of Rayvanny and Diamond Platnumz was a controversial decision that sparked a debate about censorship and freedom of expression in Tanzania. Some people believe that the ban was justified because the artists violated BASATA’s regulations. Others believe that the ban was excessive and that it violated the artists’ right to free expression.

The ban of Rayvanny and Diamond Platnumz is a reminder of the challenges that artists face in Tanzania. Artists in Tanzania are subject to a variety of regulations, and they can be banned from performing if they violate those regulations.
