Tanzanian songwriter, TV and radio host, Vanessa Mdee and her musician boyfriend, Juma Jux both shared a romantic kiss on stage after a thrilling performance during the weekend. Unfortunately for the lovebirds, public display of affection is frowned upon and there is a strict regulation passed by the Tanzanian government that banned posting of cozy photos online.
The lovebirds who recently got back together early this year after breaking up for six months decided to spice things up on stage. Jux and Vanessa knelt down and kissed passionately as the crowd cheered them on. The couple then posted a picture of the kiss on social media.
Tanzania’s Communication Regulatory Authority known as (BASATA) is now coming after them for posting ‘provocative photos’ on social media. According to Basata’s Chief Executive Godfry Mngereza, the picture was provocative and hence they will not turn a blind eye.
It is not clear what action will be taken against both artistes but the commission has warned other artists from posting such photos on their social media insisting that they will hunt them down for the sake of upholding morality.
