Ethic’s ‘Tarimbo’ finally pulled down from YouTube following Ezekiel Mutua’s stern message

Since the release of their new single ‘Tarimbo’, Kenyan Gengetone group Ethic has been under fire over the song’s ‘rapey’ lyrics.

Now the song has finally been pulled down on YouTube following a public outcry and Kenya Films and Classification Board CEO Ezekiel Mutua’s intervention.

“Tarimbo is now totally deleted from YouTube and the channel owners served first warning. After a third violation, the channel will be totally deactivated” posted Mutua after the song was pulled down.

Shortly after the release of Tarimbo, the moral police called for the arrest of the group and said he had contacted Google to pull down the song something that took about a week as the song gained momentum on the platform as reported by The Sauce.

The group is now starring at the possibility of losing their YouTube channel for good if they get two more strikes on the video-sharing site.

This is despite the group being awarded with the coveted YouTube Silver Play button by Google a week ago after surpassing 100,000 subscribers.

As reported by The Sauce, the hitmaking group was quick to offer and apology through a statement on Twitter last week stating that they were remorseful for the reactions the song elicited and maintained that they did not intend to disrespect anyone. “As artists, we are sons to our mothers, brothers to our sisters, uncles to our nieces and friends to our female friends and fans, and it is not in any way our intention to publicize this.”

About four weeks ago, another of Ethic’s song, Thao, featuring Boondocks Gang, was briefly pulled down from YouTube over copyright infringement.

Ethic also had their hit song Figa pulled down from YouTube in August 2019 after claims that the beats were lifted from a song titled ‘Coño’  by Puri featuring Jhorrmountain and Adje which was released in December 2017.
