Diamond Platinumz

Diamond Platinumz Baikoko at the mouth of the Mwacheme Riva and Nasema Nawe are part of a series exploring the censorship of a sexualised dance called Baikoko, traditionally performed at weddings in coastal Tanzania. Recently Baikoko has gained wider attention through the music videos of Kenyan Bongo Flava star Diamond Platnumz, and has been banned in Tanzania.
