Bongo star Diamond Platnumz has finally received the green light to launch his much publicised Wasafi TV and Radio stations.
Diamond shared the huge milestone with his fans on Instagram revealing that he had been officially handed broadcasting license for Wasafi TV and Wasafi FM by the Minister of Information, Culture, Tourism and Sports Zanzibar.
Diamond thanked Tanzania’s President John Pombe Magufuli stating that his goal in starting the venture was to create jobs for journalists whom he said are yet to be employed.
“Leo tulikabidhiwa Rasmi Leseni ya @wasafitv na @wasafifm na Mh Waziri wa Habari, Tamaduni, Utalii na Michezo Zanzibar mh Rashid Ali Juma…..Shukran Nyingi ziifikie Serikali ya Mapinduzi Zanzibar na Jamuhuri nzima ya Muungano wa Tanzania…Ma raisi wetu pendwa Dr John Pombe Magufuli & Dr Ali Mohammed Shein,” he said
The singer had announced his intention to open a radio and TV station early this year and had even received a broadcasting license for Wasafi radio in Rwanda late last month.
The ‘sikomi’ hit maker had also expressed his intention to open his media houses’s branches in Eastern Africa.
