Veteran Kenyan music producer Tedd Josiah has had enough of Gengetone hitmakers Ethic Entertainment’s controversial music.
In a recent Instagram post, Josiah addressed the new age artists who cannot seem to get heir act together. He lashed out at Gengetone artists for failing to produce and release music that the Kenyan music industry can be proud of.
Speaking in sheng’ to seemingly appeal to the young stars, the ‘Kisima Awards’ founder did not mince his words in condemning Ethic and other gengetone stars for promoting the rape culture in their music.
Josiah was not afraid to tell of the popular artists that they were giving the growing Kenyan music industry a bad reputation that will hinder the development of the industry. He added that he understood creativity and freedom of speech but did not approve of the new stars way of making music.
Josiah goes on to swear that he would be willing to go to prison if someone abused his daughter, three year old Wendo.
This is following the recent uproar over Ethic’s new song ‘Soko’ which has lines promoting the rape culture and paedophilia. The Kenya Film and Classification Board boss Ezekiel Mutua has since contacted Google to take down the song on YouTube and called for the arrest of the producers of the song.
That marked the second time that Ethic has been on the receiving end after releasing music with controversial lyrics. The first time was after the release of the song ‘Tarimbo’ in 2019.
