Ezekiel Mutua reacts to Ethic’s apology

By Vincent Kejitan | November 6th 2019

Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua on Wednesday reacted to an apology by Ethic Entertainment over their latest song Tarimbo.

Through a post on social media, Mutua noted that the apology is not enough and the group should take responsibility for its actions.

Further, he urged the singers to change their behavior and act in a more respectful manner.

“It's not enough to apologize. People must take responsibility for their actions.

“The real apology should be change of behavior and a commitment to be responsible!” said Mutua.

On Monday this week, Ethic apologized to their fans saying their song ‘Tarimbo’ is not meant to disrespect women in any way.

“It has come to our attention that our latest single ‘Tarimbo’ has stirred up mixed reactions and elicited various negative interpretations from different quarters.

“As recording artists, it is our sole duty to entertain our fans and NOT deploy our content to propagate hate against any person, most importantly women,” read a tweet.

Further, they stated that they are remorseful for the reactions the song elicited and maintained that they did not intend to disrespect anyone.

“As artists, we are sons to our mothers, brothers to our sisters, uncles to our nieces and friends to our female friends and fans, and it is not in any way our intention to publicize violence or rape against these highly revered individuals in our community,” said the group.
