Two highly popular songs Wamlambez and Tetema have been banned in the Kenyan market by the authority.
Head of the KFCB, Ezekiel Mutua, on Tuesday disclosed that his outfit considered Tetema (a Tanzanian song) and Wamlambeez (by the Kenyan music group, Sailors) are obscene and had banned it from being played publicly.
He added that they could only be played in clubs and pubs for the consumption of adults especially because they were singing in coded language.
The songs are glorifying sex even to the underage and obscene videos.
In a tweet, Dr. Mutua said that the two songs, Wamlambez by Sailors and Tetema by Rayvany and Diamond Platnumz should only be played in night clubs and bars and not in public spaces where children are likely to be.
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! @InfoKfcb

“Both songs are pure pornography. While we may not ban them because they are coded, it is important for the public to know that they are dirty and unsuitable for mixed company. Let them be restricted to clubs, for adults only!” tweeted Dr. Mutua. Both songs are full of sexual innuendo.
On a phone interview with Standard Media, Dr. Mutua reiterated that the directive is aimed at protecting children from exposure to vulgar content.
“The idea is to protect children from premature exposure to adult content. The lyrics sound very catchy but the meaning is very vulgar.
“It’s embarrassing when you find the songs being played even in schools and children are performing them in front of their parents while they (parents) take photos of them.
