Magufuli and Tanzanian artistes
Most Bongo Flava artistes loved Magufuli because of his support, and this was shown during the 2020 General Election campaigns.
“I feel good when I see Ali Kiba seated next to Diamond. When you see Harmonize, who left Diamond Platnumz praising him in public, that’s the unity I want,” Magufuli said during one of his campaign rallies where he had invited the three stars.
In December 2018, Diamond led other artistes in declaring a truce with the government, begging Magufuli to pardon him over “indecent” content, which saw some of his songs banned. Magufuli pardoned the singer and even gifted him with a hat during one of his campaign rallies.
Diamond Platinumz later remixed his popular song, Baba Lao, to a new version, Magufuli Baba Lao – a campaign anthem that was played in every corner of the country during CCM campaign rallies.
