Utaacha Uchokozi - Ezekiel Mutua to Joey Muthengi
You need to chill Joey
Ezekiel who many like to refer to as the ‘moral policeman’ in a statement, asked the screen siren to stop the side show, while at the same time commending last Friday’s show to be good.
He however insisted that most of their previous shows crossed the line for set moral standards.
“Joey Muthengi utaacha uchokozi. Am not against guys having fun. I am against immoral and obscene programs. Last Friday's show was ok, but most of the other episodes crossed the line,” read part of his statement.
Special shut out
Joey had sent a ‘special’ shout out to the KFCB Chief Executive on the Friday night show, appreciating him for watching the show. This came just a few days after the moral policeman had threatened to ban the show on grounds that it promotes immodest and porno-like content in the name of entertainment and had even forwarded a Bill to the National Assembly on the same.
“Content does not have to be obscene to sell, and parading young boys and girls behaving badly on TV is not entertainment. 10/10 is disco on TV. Airing prurient and overt porno-like stuff in the name of entertainment is unacceptable. As much as the program is aired after the watershed period, I disapprove Citizen TV's greed to use young boys and girls to twerk and gyrate their torsos to improve its ratings. What the kids do publicly is a preserve of strip clubs,” he said.
Ezekiel added that all he wants is responsible programs that promote talent but also adhere to ethical standards. He went ahead to point out NTV’s the Trend and Citizen TV’s Mseto East Africa which have promoted talent and kept to ethical standards.
