BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,3RD NOV 2019- Ethic Entertainment group has come under sharp criticisms over their new song ‘Tarimbo’, with Kenya Films and Classification Board Chairman Ezekiel Mutua calling for the arrest od the group members.
Furious Mutua also says he had already written to Google to pull it down from the internet.
Mutua termed the song as ‘crap’ saying that it advocates for violence and rape of women, adding that the musicians should be arrested by the Directorate of Criminal Investigation.
“I have spoken to Google to take down the damn crap called Tarimbo by Ethic Entertainment which advocates for rape of women. Promoting violence against women is criminal and the DCI should arrest the entire bunch of musicians called Ethic, under Article 33, for going beyond the prescribed delimitations on freedom of expression by advocating for violence against women” he said on his Facebook account.
Mutua further told off critics who were accusing the KFCB board of killing creativity in the country.
“We banned Wamlambez, people said we were killing creativity. I asked these morons if they could shout Wamlambez before their parents and they said they could. I was baffled. These so called musicians and performers have defied everything decent societies holds dear. They have thrown morality to the four winds in the name of money and popularity.” Mutua said.
According to Mutua, the Wamlambez and Tarimbo singers are not artists but “demented circus thugs hiding behind art to promote indecency,” adding that neither any self respecting DJ should not play such.
