Kenya Film Classification Board CEO Ezekiel Mutua took the hot seat and responded to some of the most creative tweets about his controversial actions.
The man who has garnered a reputation as the moral police in Kenya’s ever-changing society took it all on the chin as K.O.T gave their take on his decisions, and more importantly the Wamlambez debate among many other incidents.
As earlier reported by The Sauce, Kenya Film and Classification Board Boss banned viral Kenyan song ‘Taka Taka’ by Alvindo in April 2019. The regulatory board banned the song, due to its obscene and degrading lyrics that advocate for violence against women by equating them to trash; in light of a series of violent acts against women that made headline news.
More recently, KFCB took to Twitter under the leadership of Ezekiel Mutua, noted that the Sailors release ‘Wamlambez’ and Diamond Platnumz ‘Tetema’ had explicit content which was not suitable for minors. Mutua, noted that the songs have not been completely banned, but should only be played in adult clubs and bars.
