Magufuli ataonyesha watu vituko! After banning miniskirts in Tanzania, Magufuli went on to arrest rumoured drug barons and now he has been disciplining artistes that sing bad about him.
On Sunday, Magufuli’s government ordered the arrest of a Tanzanian rapper known as Nay Wa Mitego also known as Nay True Boy. Well, it was said that the rapper was insulting the government with his new song Wapo.
In the song, Nay Wa Mitego talks about politicians who forge certificates and smoke bhang. He continues to talk about politicians who lance boils and don’t accept criticism. President John Magufuli has often spoken of “lancing boils”. Coincidence or nah?
“wanagombea front page wauzwe kwenye gazeti.Naskia kuna viongozi wame-fodge vyeti…Kuna viongozi wavuta bangi…..“Daktari haogopi kuugua kidonda.wewe si ni dokta wa majibu? Kuvamia ofisi za watu kumbe ni kazi….””
According to his spokesman Harrison Mwakyembe, the song only needs an upgrade adding that he thinks its a good song;
“Rais amesema [Nay] amesahau vitu vingine vingi, wakwepaji kodi, aongeze mambo kama hayo, wabwia unga na mihadarati wapo, wafanyabiashara wa madawa ya kulevya wapo, watanzania wanaopenda tangu asubuhi hadi jioni wao ni kwenye vijiwe tu hakuna kufanya kazi wavivu waitikie tena wapoo. Kwahiyo anasema itatusaidia sana maana ni muziki mzuri”
After the release, Nay says he has been invited to have a talk with Magufuli on Friday.
“Yeah ni kweli jana nilipata mwaliko lakini nimeambiwa niende Ijumaa kwa sababu kuna mgeni anakuja kwahiyo na mimi nimealikwa kuhudhuria,”
Well, this is the second time this notorious rapper has hit the headlines with a song that was not accepted by the public. Mid last year, he released a song dubbed Shika Adabu Yako which seemed to be insulting his fellow celebrities including Wema Sepetu.
