Ezekiel Mutua calls out Mejja, Femi One over Utawezana Hit
Kenya Film Classification Board CEO, Ezekiel Mutua has called out rapper Femi One and Mejja over their hit song ‘utawezana’
The song which premiered on Youtube on 1st April already enjoys over 2.6 million views on the platform and has been dominating charts since then.
In an online post, moral cop Ezekiel Mutua now says the two artists should be ashamed on releasing such content.
Mutua argues that artistes should focus their energy on releasing content that will help in the fight against CoOVID-19.
“The perverts who are creating such obscenity like “Nikikupea utawezana” should be ashamed of themselves. Media houses promoting such crap too are a disgrace. Artistes should be creating inspiring content to help combat COVID-19 pandemic, not promoting sexual perversion. Our artistes must not glorify immorality in the guise of creativity. The Okonkwo Utawezana nonsense is a shallow, bizarre sexual perversion. There’s absolutely nothing creative there. That lady would be ashamed to sing such crap before her mother,” He wrote
Mutua further added that both Mejja and Femi One will be blacklisted from benefitting from the government funds meant for artists.
“The Government has a duty to protect children from premature exposure to adult content. Those producing, broadcasting, distributing or exhibiting immoral content will not benefit from Government funding and public events funded by the Government. Right now kids are at home and have access to technology as an essential tool for their studies. It’s wrong to have content that can ruin their morals being circulated with wanton abandon. Its worse when mainstream media begins to glorify such dirty content by giving the creators airtime on TV or Radio,” He added
