Nay wa Mitego

After releasing the song Wapo (they are present), this Tanzanian musician found himself in jail. He was charged with insulting President John Magufuli, over the lyrics of the song which allude to a doctor who fixes boils but cannot tolerate criticism.

Nay has come under fire before for his lyrics that spare no one even his fellow musicians.
