The Kenya Film and Classification Board CEO Ezekiel Mutua is known for lashing out at artists but this time around, he is on creatives’ side.
The moral cop recently took to Twitter to announce that following a complaint by a member of the public, his team had given Sauti Sol’s hit song ‘Suzzanna’ a clean bill of health.
The complaint from the unknwn member of the public had accused the award winning afro pop band of promoting incest with the 70s themed song whose video was shot in Lagos, Nigeria.
In “Suzanna”, the main character in the song, who’s named after it, is ridiculed for her love of sponsors (sugar daddies), travelling to exquisite destinations and owning expensive items.
Suzanna portrays an image of the current generational issues and the extremities that young men and women will go to afford a luxurious lifestyle which more often than not will be financed by older men or older women.
Luckily, the claim was declared unfounded by the Broadcast Monitoring team after conucting an analysis and rated suitable for all family viewing.
The news was well received by the ‘Sura Yako’ hitmakers through their social media page. They also took the opportunity to lash out at the unknown complainant for spreading false claims.
As reported by The Sauce a week ago, Mutua cracked the whip on Gengetone stars Ethic Entertainment after the release of their song, ‘Soko’ which was called out for promoting the rape culture and paedophilia.
‘Suzanna’ is the first single off Sauti Sol’s upcoming album dubbed ‘Midnight Train’ which is set to debut on the 5th of June 2020.
