According to the artists, song was produced out of creativity.
“We are here to apologize to the family of Ivy because of our song “pigwa shoka”…we never meant to hurt anyone, either his family or friends; we don’t support anyone to be killed. We also have sisters and mothers and we wouldn’t wish them to be killed…we know everyone is affected by the song, both his family and classmates at Moi University, we are very sorry for that” said one of the artist.
The song, upon its release, came under czar criticism on social media, who disapproved the production with the majority saying it was applauding femicide.
