Kenya Film Classification Board CEO Ezekiel Mutua has banned Wamlambez and Tetema sings in Kenya.The moral police indicated that the songs are not family friendly, hence not fit for public consumption. He however allowed them to be played in pubs.
“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.
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, for adults only!”,said the CEO
Tetema means shaking while wamlambez means licking. The two songs have taken the country by storm as politicians, church goers, and every member of the society dance to their tunes. The coded language is one that’s causing controversy.
If you are found playing any of the two songs in public, you’ll be arrested and charged.
