Singer apologises for making out in video

Diamond Platnumz's present ordeal with law in his country, Tanzania has made him come out to apologise.

The award-winning star told reporters why he realised that he was wrong for releasing a video of such manner in an interview.

"I’ve had a long conversation with the authorities and I have learnt that what I did was not right. As a role model to many young people, not just in Tanzania but across the continent, posting a private moment was irresponsible of me.," he said.

A few days ago, Diamond Platnumz was arrested by the police authority in his country over the "Offensive video'' he posted on his Instagram page.

According to the Tanzanian Information Minister, Harrison Mwakyembe, the musician had fallen foul of the new Electronic and Postal Communications (Online Content) Regulations, introduced a few weeks ago.

He said the authorities plan to file charges against Diamond Platnumz. It would be recalled that Diamond Platnumz shared some disturbing posts via his Instagram Story on Monday, April 16, 2018, shading his first baby mama, Zarinah Hassan.

In the posts, it is also clear that he may have reconciled with his 2nd baby mama although not for the right reasons. Diamond shared what looks to be a reconciliatory video with Hamisa Mobetho, but was contradicted by another video of him making out with an unknown lady in the same room he was pictured in while with his second baby mama.
