Ali Nur offers to pay Bahati Sh200,000 after Ezekiel Mutua's decision to end partnership.

Honorable Mohamed Ali Nur has offered to pay musician Bahati Sh200,000 as compensation after the Kenya Classification Board (KFCB) boss Dr. Ezekiel Mutua prematurely ended his partnership with the board.

In Ali Nur's opinion, Dr. Ezekiel Mutua should have handled the matter privately without tainting Bahati's reputation, stating that his uncalculated move could eventually cost the singer his career.

"I believe there are better ways to sort issues other than parading them online for cheap publicity. KFCB's CEO Dr. Ezekiel Mutua alias Deputy Jesus has said that he has cancelled 200k partnership deal with Bahati. That has not only tainted Bahati's name but also jeopardized his main source of income. In my consistent commitment to support local artists, I am going to pay the 200k to artists," he wrote.

"I feel so bad when our own artists are intimidated by those that are supposed to help them. I will stand with them forever," he added.  


"@EzekielMutua you are doing a good job if possible just cancel this music industry... We are tired of public stunts," he wrote.

However, a section of online users felt that the KFCB boss's decision was unfair, explaining that it might push some artists to have mental health problems.

"Don't cause youths mental health problems. There is nothing that can't be discussed. Call Bahati and end his contract professionally not through social media. Harassment at its best Mr. Mutua," wrote a concerned user by the name Mkoigu.
