Gengetone fans had a heated debate in one of their whatsapp groups over content of the gengetone music.

Ethic are believed to be the pioneers of the Gengetone genre of music in Kenya

The argument came against a backdrop of reports of students attacking their teachers and the non teaching staffs accross the country.

Some of the fans claimed that the current content of gengetone music is what might have contributed to the rising cases of violence among students.

According to one of the fans, the glorification of sex, drugs and the half naked vixens in the videos could have catalysed the bad behaviour among the students.
