Tanzania’s top music star Diamond Platnumz was only held briefly by authorities over what they allege were “obscene” videos he allegedly posted on social media, news agency Reuters reports.
The 28-year-old singer whose birth name is Nassib Abdul was arrested on Monday.
Another artist, 26-year-old Faustina Charles who is popularly known as Nandy, was also released after being detained.
She was also accused of “indecency” for a video that was shared on WhatsApp.
A government minister has said that the two musicians are likely to face criminal charges.
