The authorities in Tanzania have suspended female rapper Rosa Ree from performing for six months, saying her recently released music video “went against the country’s’ morals”.

The Body that regulates the arts industry in Tanzania, Baraza la Sanaa la Taifa (Basata), said the song “Vitamin U” which the rapper performed with her Kenyan musician boyfriend, Timmy Tdat, also contravened its regulations.

The suspension means Rosa Ree will also not be allowed to perform outside the country and will have to pay a fine of more than eight hundred dollars.

The Board found her with two infractions other than sharing explicit content online.
