He noted that all artistes that will be on stage should understand and adhere to the Tanzanian customs and traditions.

“Tuko na kitengo maalum cha kuhakisha kwamba kila anayepanda stage ni professional, anajua kulinda na kutunza tamaduni za Kitanzania…asiyesajiliwa BASATA kwa bahati mbaya hatutakuwa naye,” said Diamond. (We have a special unit to ensure that everyone who gets on the stage is professional and knows how to protect and preserve Tanzanian culture)

Diamond added that following the ban on Wasafi TV, the WCB festival has received a lot of attention and will be watched internationally. He noted that the festival must represent the best of Tanzania to the world.
