Tuesday, August 27, 2019- Kenya’s self-declared moral policeman, Ezekiel Mutua, has banned playing of viral songs Tetema and Wamlambez in public.

According to Mutua, who is the CEO of the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB), the two songs should only be played in night clubs and bars where the audience is strictly adult.

On the same breath, Mutua lambasted some national leaders for dancing to the two songs in public.

 “Tetema and Wamlambez songs are strictly forbidden outside of clubs and bars. It’s embarrassing to see even national leaders singing and dancing to the obscenity in public.

“The lyrics are dirty and not suitable for public consumption, especially mixed company or where children are likely to be watching or listening. Both songs are pure pornography,” said Mutua.

He added: “While we may not ban them because they are coded, it’s important for the public to know that they are dirty and unsuitable for mixed company. Let them be restricted to clubs, strictly for adults.”

Among the leaders who have been caught getting down to Tetema which was released early this year by Tanzanian duo, Diamond Platinumz and Rayvanny, include Raila Idinga and former Nairobi Woman rep, Rachel Shebesh.

Wamlambez on the other hand, was released in April this year and went viral owing to its catchy phrase.
