Ethic’s new ‘Tarimbo’ song thriving on YouTube despite Ezekiel Mutua’s ban

Kenyan Gengetone hitmaking group Ethic on Friday released a new single dubbed ‘Tarimbo’ which has been heavily criticised for promoting the rape culture in its lyrics.

The song has caught the attention of many due to its vulgar nature and is said to be advocating for the rape of women.  This led to many fans and fellow artists alike calling out the group for putting out a song that seemingly encourages the rape culture in the name of making hit music.

“Mi hupenda chapa na tarimbo, mi huchapa, chapa na nakanyaga,  namwaga bila hata permission,”sings Rekles.

Kenyan moral police, Ezekiel Mutua who heads the Kenya Film and Classification Board, heeded the cries of many on social media and put out a statement that he had banned the song from being played on either radio and TV as well as night clubs. He further added that he had contacted Tech firm Google to pull down the song from Youtube and called for the arrest of the group by the DCI.

Despite the call for the ban and request to pull down the disconcerting song, the song is still up and thriving. It is currently trending at number one on YouTube and has garnered over 500,000 views so far since its release. Some fans are even sharing videos of them dancing and enjoying the song.

Following ‘Tarimbo’s mixed reactions, Kenyan socialite-turned-entrepreneur Huddah Monroe came out to accuse the music group of vanishing into thin air with her deposit after striking a business deal to sing about the beauty of women while promoting her Huddah Cosmetics line.

On their social media pages, the group is calling on fans to keep on sharing the song on social media but have not directly replied to Mutua’s directive nor complaints by the public. A recent post by Ethic says that fans should watch out for more bangers.

This is not the first Ethic song that has been banned, earlier this year, the KFCB boss banned their popular hit ‘Wamlambez’.
