‘Tetema and Wamlambez Restriced to Clubs and Bars ONLY’ Says KFCB CEO Ezekiel Mutua

he Kenya Film Classification Board boss Ezekiel Mutua now wants popular hits Wamlambez and Tetema to only be played in bars and clubs.

In a tweet shared on his Twitter account on Tuesday, Mutua described the two songs as “pure pornography,” saying the lyrics are “dirty and not suitable for public consumption.

“Tetema and Wamlambez songs are strictly forbidden outside of clubs and bars. It’s embarrassing to see even national leaders singing and dancing to the obscenity in public. The lyrics are dirty and not suitable for public consumption, especially children,” he tweeted.

wamlambez, the local hit song by Miracle Boy, Shalkido, Masilver, Lexxy Yung and Qoqosjuma who form the group Sailers has been a national sensation since its release in April, racking up over 3.8 million views on YouTube.

Tetema, the mega-hit by Tanzanian bongo stars Rayvanny and Diamond Platinumz has been a smash hit with over 27 million YouTube views and massive radio airplay.

“While we may not ban them because they are coded, it’s important for the public to know that they are dirty and unsuitable for mixed company,” he wrote.

“Let them be restricted to clubs, for adults only!”

In April this year, Mutua also banned ‘Takataka’ a song by Alvin aka Alvindo.

The KFCB CEO described the song as obscene with degrading lyrics that advocate for violence against women by equating them to trash.
