Wasafi records artists have allegedly been blocked by Wasafi C.E.O Diamond Platnumz from dropping a new album for the remainder of this year. Wasafi’s Rich Mavoko who signed to Wasafi Record in May 2016 has accused Diamond of blocking artists under the record label from releasing albums before the year ends.
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 revealed that other Wasafi artists have also stopped their plans to release new albums because Diamond is set to release his new album ‘A Boy From Tandale’ soon.
It is alleged that Diamond’s move is in a bid to block off competition from his fellow artists under his lucrative record label.
“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, nikawa nataka yeye atoe na mimi nitoe na wengine wote watoe, watu kibao wana mangoma ndani,” said Rich Mavoko.
