Suleiman, when asked to comment on the constraining situations to female musicians, was of the same opinion: that it was the community, not the censorship board that to a great extent was behind censorship of female artists.
“At the Censorship Board we never thought of intervening,” told Suleiman M. Islam Many people have claimed that Islam, which is the religion of the majority in Zanzibar, has contributed to the undermining of female musicians to take part in music.
Farrid Himid, a historian and publisher of a now censored cultural newspaper, (The Pride of Zanzibar), refutes this claim: “It is all about hypocrisy and selfishness, not about Islam,” he told Freemuse, adding that Islam offers lots of opportunities for female artists to exercise their talents, but some influential people mystify the topic and deprive women to perform music because of personal interests and biases.
