The body that regulates the arts industry in Tanzania, Baraza la Sanaa la Taifa (Basata), added that 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 an $870 (£675) fine,
