Tanzanian rapper Chidi Benz has made his feelings of disappointment known after missing out on the star-studded line up of Wasafi festival.
According to the veteran hitmaker, Diamond refused to invite him to perform because of his past history with hard drugs.
Speaking to a local radio station, Chidi Benz faulted the Wasafi management for overlooking artistes with meaningful messages over hype artistes.
He cited fellow hitmaker Dudu Baya saying he was only invited for his popular stage phrase “Konki Master” and not because he releases meaningful songs.
“Sisi wasanii tunaoimba nyimbo ambazo zinabeba ujumbe na maana hatupati nafasi kabisa utasikia wanasema achana na hao wakina Chidi Benz wanakula unga ila Dudubaya kisa anasema konki konki anajaza watu basi nasibu anampa tour kwenye Wasafi Festival,” said Chidi Benz.
Taking to social media to respond to the claims, Dudu Baya insinuated that Chidi Benz is acting up because of drug abuse and that he is being used.
“Hawa jamaa wasiokuwa na marinda….wanatabia wakikufanyisha show…na unawadai huwa wanatuma mtu akuharibu kwa madawa ya kulevya….na unakuwa kichaa kabisa…na nampaka inapelekea kifo.wapi mangwea,wapi langa,r.ip wanangu….swali kubwa yupo wapi darasa cmg……inauma…wasanii wenzangu nimebaniwa muziki wangu miaka 12.lakini bado niko fiti.konki konki konki master.teja hawezi kuona mabadiliko…saizi yake kaburi…” posted Dudu Baya on Instagram.
