WCB president Diamond Platnumz has revealed the role his Wasafi record label will play in the campaign of one of his managers Babu Tale, who is seeking a parliamentary seat.
Babu Tale recently announced his Morogoro parliamentary bid, and has since clinched the nomination for the seat in the upcoming October election.
Through his Instagram account, Diamond noted that once his former manager puts in place a campaign team, they will support him through releasing new music in his honor.
“SIO TU USHINDI BALI USHINDI WA KISHINDO...!!! Nasemaje kama Nilivyosema Mwanzo sina Mashaka na uongozi wako, kama Uliweza niongoza MIMI / WASAFI na Wasanii mbalimbali na tukaweza fikia Hapa, basi naamini Unaweza iongoza vyema Morogoro Vijinini Kusini mashariki, na Kuipatia Maendeleo wanayoyataka....Tunasubiria Kamati Kuu tu imalize shughuri tuanze Kufumua Manyimbo na Kamapeni ianze Tulichukue Jimbo kwa Kishindo!!!,” posted Diamond.
Diamond’s announcement is not a surprise, considering that several musicians have aligned themselves with several political figures in the past, and dropped songs in their honor.
Babu joins a list of high profile names from the Tanzania entertainment scene who have declared their interest in politics.
Already, big names like Professa Jay are serving in the Tanzanian Parliament.
