Wasafi artists can’t drop new album, at least not this year. Rich Mavoko says their boss Diamond Platnumz has blocked them from releasing new album.
Rich Mavoko signed to Diamond’s Wasafi Record in May 2016. The Tanzanian singer was previously signed to King Kaka’s Kaka Empire record which is located in Nairobi.
Mavoko was praised for moving to Wasafi where his music career blossomed. He has dropped several new hit songs and also collaborated with international artists most recently being Patoranking.
Apparently Diamond has blocked Wasafi artists from releasing new albums. Mavoko says he had plans to drop a new album but he shelved his plan because Diamond had announced earlier he was releasing his album.
Speaking on Magic FM’s Daladala Beat show, Rich Mavoko reveals that other Wasafi artists have also stopped their plans to release new albums. Diamond is set to release his new album ‘A Boy From Tandale’ soon.
“Kiukweli mtu ambaye anatucheleweshea foleni yetu ni Chibu tu kwa sababu ni mtu wa kwanza alipata idea ya kutoa albamu mwaka huu tulikuwa tunaheshimu wazo lake sisi tukawa wa pili. Kwa hiyo nilikuwa na wazo la kutoa kwa mwaka huu, nilikawa nataka yeye atoe na mimi nitoe na wengine wote watoe, watu kibao wana mangoma ndani,” said Rich Mavoko.
