Tanzanian rapper Rosa Ree has been banned from taking part in any music related activities for 6 months by TZ films board Baraza la Sanaa la Taifa (Basata) ,over nude video she did with Timmy Tdat.(Vitamin U).
“Baraza la Sanaa la Taifa (Basata) limemfungia msanii wa bongfleva nchini Tanzania Roza Ree kutojihusisha na muziki kwa miezi 6 kutokana na video ya wimbo wa Vitamin U aliyoshirikishwa na Msanii Timmy Tdat wa Kenya,” Mwananchi Newspaper reports.
This means that Rosa Ree will not be allowed to perform in and outside the country, as well as release any new song for the period of the ban.
The two edited the video and re-uploaded a cleaner version(blurred).
The acting Basata CEO Onesmo Kayanda later said that the board would deliberate on the punishment after they found Rosa Ree with two mistakes that went against the country’s’ morals as well as regulations set by the board.
“We summoned Rosa Ree and granted her a hearing. The board found her with two mistakes other than sharing explicit content online. One, she never brought the project to Basata for review and two she did not enter into a contract with the international artiste she collaborated with as per the law,” said Kayanda.
