Kenyan rapper King Kaka has sparked a major online storm over the weekend after he released his revolutionary poetic piece ‘Wajinga Nyinyi’.
The rapper has seemingly rubbed off some higher-ups the wrong way as he now claims that his life is in danger and even asked his fans to pray for his safety.
As reported by The Sauce on Saturday (14.12.19) when the spoken word piece dropped, the rapper is saying it as it is. The lyricist painfully addresses the current political, social and economic state of our country Kenya.
After revealing that he would be deleting the video to the song until things calmed down, the video is however still up on YouTube with over a million views and counting.
Since its release, ‘Wajinga Nyinyi’ has been trending for two days in a row. Many Kenyans on Twitter who are seemingly fed up have since taken to social media to acknowledge the bitter truths that King Kaka highlighted in the song and called on one another to do better during the next elections in 2022.
The unapologetic hitmaker specifically calls out the President saying despite having Kenyatta, we are yet to get Uhuru, Nyali MP and former investigative journalist Mohamed Ali alias Moha Jicho Pevu for not exposing his fellow politicians, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko for seemingly dancing around while the city is in chaos and religious leaders for wanting to please government officials.
Moral cop and Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua applauded the rapper for his controversial Wajinga Nyinyi masterpiece that is generating alot of heat.
Dr Mutua has also asked Kenyans to reflect on the message in the poetic piece that has rattled the political class and pricked the conscience of the nation. While some in the political class have taken offence with the piece, Dr Mutua has asked those affected to seek redress in court as KFCB will not interfere with Wajinga Nyinyi’s production.
“King Kaka’s Wajinga Nyinyi new release is evidence that we are a free country. He has used his creative licence to prick our conscience. Anyone defamed can seek legal redress, but as a board, we will not interfere with the production, Mutua said.
‘Wajinga Nyinyi’ is his 4th single in his upcoming ‘The Servant and the King’ mixtape.
