“When we banned Wamlambez people said we were killing creativity. I asked these nincompoops if they could shout Wamlambez before their mothers and they said they could. I was baffled.

“These so-called musicians and performers have defied everything decent societies hold dear. They have thrown morality to the four winds in the name of money and popularity,” he said.

Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua has called for the immediate arrest of Kenyan music group Ethic Entertainment for promoting violence against women through their music.

Mutua took issue with the group’s latest song ‘Tarimbo’ which he said advocates for the rape of women.

He added that the DCI should arrest all of them for going beyond the prescribed limits of expression.


“I have spoken to Google to take down the damn crap called Tarimbo by Ethic Entertainment which advocates for rape of women. Promoting violence against women is criminal.

“The DCI should arrest the entire bunch of musicians called Ethic, under Article 33, for going beyond the prescribed delimitations on freedom of expression by advocating for violence against women,” said the KFCB CEO.

Just months after calling for the banning of Wamlambez, a song by Sailors, Mutua stated that the two music groups have no regard for morality and promote indecency.

“When we banned Wamlambez people said we were killing creativity. I asked these nincompoops if they could shout Wamlambez before their mothers and they said they could. I was baffled.

“These so-called musicians and performers have defied everything decent societies hold dear. They have thrown morality to the four winds in the name of money and popularity,” he said.

Mutua asked DJs not to play songs that promote violence against women and warned that at this rate the country will lose an entire generation in the name of creative freedom.

“Any self-respecting DJ should not play these songs. No club should allow music that advocates for violence against women.

“Unless decent people rise against the wave of immorality in Kenya, we are going to lose a generation in the name of creative freedom,” he remarked.

Adding: “No freedom is absolute. This time round we must draw the line!”
