A lot of theories have been bandied around why top Tanzania gospel songbird Christina Shusho did not perform at the much hyped Jubilee Party launch held on Saturday at the Safaricom stadium in Kasarani.
Bloggers and supporters of Cord took to social media to congratulate President Magufuli for prevailing upon Shusho not to perform at the event of a ‘corrupt regime’-sentiments we cannot independently verify.
On her part, Shusho was quoted as saying that her decision not to perform was due to her strong Christian faith that dictates she cannot perform in political rallies.
She was quoted as saying:
“I don’t mind my songs being used during various political rallies to reach out and touch the lives of many.”
“That aside, I would not dare perform because it may appear like I am part of the campaign or perhaps supporting a particular party which is not a good character as a true Christian,” added the award winning superstar.
Kenyan gospel singer Bahati performance came under heavy criticism for defying protocol by sitting on a seat reserved for President Uhuru Kenyatta while performing for the First lady.
Many Kenyans thought his behavior was not in tandem with Christian teachings. He was since apologized to Kenyans and the Head of State.
