Tanzanian award winning musician Diamond Platinum is in trouble with the government once again. This time trouble came from the Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority, a government agency in charge of keeping the media in line with government policy. The TCRA found the Diamond Mtasubiri video with Zuchu questionable and with that ruled that it should not be played on any media house in Tanzania!

According to TCRA, the intro scene to the video Zuchu is controversial and insulting to the Christian community. In the scene a choir member in a church gets a phone call from Diamond which sends the young girl crazy and forces her to leave her church duties. Thie authorities believe that playing a music video with such a message will be offensive to the christian community. Diamond was advised to consider editing the video if he wants it be played on Tanzanian media.
The video broke records within minutes of being uploaded. 100k views within 37 minutes on Youtube and 1 million viewers in 16 hours. This is not the first time Diamond is having a run-in with government authorities over his music. Since the days of past president Late Magufuli, Diamond has been having run-ins with the law.
