Diamond Platnumz, the Tanzanian musician, has been called out for featuring Confederate flags in his latest song video titled Gidi.

As per a report on BBC,  the confederate flag was designed in South Carolina in the US after it declared that it was going to be its own nation leading to a civil war in the 1860s.

First raised in 1962 as defiance against civil rights and a white supremacist response that intimidated black people, the flag is seen as divisive and a symbol of slavery and racism.

Kenyans on Twitter had this to say in regards to the use of the flags.

Be it as it may, the video released three days ago has scooped 1.7 million views so far.
