Popular Tanzanian singer Matonya who is famous for his mega hit ‘Vaileti’, has blasted Diamond Platnumz whom he accuses of stealing from him.
Matonya put Diamond on the spot after the superstar featured all artistes under his Wasafi record label to drop a new song ‘Zilipendwa’ which has been trending since its release on August 25th.
The ‘Vaileti’ singer claims he has legal right over the name ‘Zilipendwa’ since he once dropped a song by the same title. He took to social media to rant about Diamond stealing from him and urged Tanzania’s music governing body – Baraza la Sanaa la Taifa(BASATA) to take action against Diamond.
“Nduguzangu wasafi / Nawapongeza sana kwa kazi mzuri mnazo zifanya / Nilifurahi Sana mlichokifanya kwa saida karoli dadaetu/ mlimuita mkamshirikisha akawapa Baraka zake/ kwangu mlishindwa nini? Sina shida Ya Pesa nina shida Ya heshima cose najua dunia ni mapito/ kama mimi naibiwa haki yangu vipi wasanii wachanga? Basata mkowapi? Wadau Wa muziki mkowapi? Usipo ziba ufa tajenga kuta!! Khaaa tena Bila woga🙆🙆🙆🙆 lakini haki itafata mkondo wake,” Matonya wrote on Instagram.
