Secular artist Isaiah Waharaka could be in trouble after his Kikuyu song, Ikamba, went viral angering many Kenyans. The song which starts with scenes from a burning Probox and others of the artist and his collaborator eating mangoes is believed to be a reply to Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu’s burn on illegal charcoal trade in the area.
The song is now under scrutiny by both the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) and the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) as well and if found inappropriate, the singers could be in trouble.
NCIC Chairman Francis Ole Kaparo acknowledged having received complains about the said songs video doing round in social media stating that investigations into the video had commenced.
He urged Kenyans to be careful on utterances they make especially if they may lead to ethnic tension and incitement.
