Tanzania’s Minister of Information, Culture, Artists and Sports Dr. Harrison Mwakyembe explained the beef of two Bongo fleva artists Diamond Platnumz and Ali Kiba as music industry welfare.
“The two have to continue beefing up as long as they are not going to kill each other. It will reach a time that their beef will finish,” he said.
Mwakyembe’s idea disclosed through interview with Times FM’s The Playlist, said their grumble brings professional competition and thus sparking creativity.
Elaborating the impact of Diamond and Kiba’s beef, he said when ‘Seduce Me’ and ‘Zilipendwa’ came out on the same day, it was a good day for the culture, the two were fantastic pieces of art.
In another side of a coin, Minister Mwakyembe have twisted his concentration from ‘endless beef’ and revealed his ‘dream’ of getting Ali kiba and Diamond Platnumz to sit on the table and shake hands after seeing the real impact of the beef.
“Someday I am going to have to get the two on a table and shake hands and make a continental drifting hit song,” said the minister,” he said.
