A group of Kenyan youth who support Kenyan music and talent has come through to defend Alvindo following the ban of her song, and threats of corps following him after releasing the Video after the ban.
Now, the angry youth want KFCB out of the office for harassing an upcoming musician and killing talent of the youth in Kenya
Edward Githaiga, CEO Vision 2030 (Youths), condemned KFCB board and specifically Mr. Mutua, over the decision to ban Alvindo’s now viral song titled ‘Takataka’ and subsequent action to call for his arrest.
“The KFCB boss “should have summoned Alvindo for a sit-down and allowed him to explain what prompted him to release the song.”
Mr. Githaiga said
Githaiga slapped Mutua on the face regarding action to record a statement with the police and order for the arrest of a young fast-rising singer as well as his producer.
The youth leader termed the decision as exaggerated and unnecessary.
Another youth urged Mr. Mutua to “offer to sponsor Alvindo to record a more appropriate song according to his standards” instead of stifling his talent and music career.
“Mutua is a public servant paid salaries mostly by us, the youth, because we’re the majority in this country. We are now calling for his resignation because he is overstepping his mandate,” added Mr. Chege.
The two also alleged to have reached out to the self-proclaimed moral police for an amicable solution to the matter but he, instead, warned that he would “teach us manners.”
Calls and texts to Mr. Mutua for a right of reply were still unanswered as at the time of publishing.
KFCB banned the ‘Takataka’ song on April 16, 2019, saying it “objectifies women and glorifies hurting them as normal reaction to rejection of overtures by men.
“Moving forward, the song should not be performed live or broadcasted anywhere within the Republic of Kenya. No Dj should play the song either on a broadcast station or in any entertainment,” read the statement from the board.
Alvindo was hence summoned to appear before the board within two weeks failure to which, according to Mr. Mutua, legal proceedings would be instituted against him.
