GHETTO RADIO RESPONDS TO EZEKIEL MUTUA
GHETTO RADIO’S STAND ON GENGETONE CONTENT
Ghetto Radio would first of all like to appreciate Kenya Film Classification Board’s effort to ensure that clean music and video content is fed to the masses.
As Ghetto Radio we recently conducted an opinion poll on air and asked the listeners what they thought of of the Gengetone genre of music. From the opinion poll, more than 60 percent of the listeners appreciated the music albeit with clean content.
Ghetto Radio also got to understand that Gengetone music has empowered many youths and at the same time seen an up-spring of untapped talent in the music industry.
While KFCB is working hard to achieve clean content in the airwaves, gagging all the avenues i.e Radio Stations, Youtube and Matatus that the Gengetone musicians are using to market themselves is not the perfect solution.
This is why Ghetto Radio has taken the following stand on Gengetone ;
- As a station we will keep playing Gengetone, however selectively based on the content.
- The station will go an extra mile of moving into mashinani and getting into the studios to help the young men and women produce good music with clean content.
- . The station will work with The ministry of ICT, Innovation and Youth Affairs State department for Youth plus other government related agencies notably KFCB to ensure this transformation is successful.
Ghetto Radio we subscribe to our 3E content policy where we Entertain,Engage and Empower.
