Musician KRG the Don in trouble after failing to obey KFCB order on banned song Takataka
More trouble for Takataka hitmakers
A letter seen by Pulselive.co.ke, indicates that the two have been summoned to appear before the Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) before May 2nd, 2019.
The two found themselves on the wrong side of the law after ignoring a ban imposed on them and proceeded to release a video for the song “Takataka”.
The song was banned two weeks ago on grounds of obscenity and promoting violence against women.
“To this effect you are hereby summoned to appear in person before the Board within 14 days of this notice, failure to which you risk prosecution and a permanent ban from membership in any collective Management Organization in Kenya. You may be accompanied by your lawyer if you so choose” reads part of the summon letter.
The letter comes days after Mutua disclosed that he had a meeting with officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), with the aim of investigating several cases of violation of the Films and Stage Plays Act Cap 222.
Ezekiel Mutua's take
“It was shocking to hear that the producer has launched the video despite our ban and the summons to appear before the Board. There's absolutely no heroism in despising a ban by Government. . Today I met officers from the who are investigating several cases of violation of the Films and Stage Plays Act Cap 222"
"The DCI submitted to our offices 230 DVDs impounded in Malindi and other parts of the country to our offices for examination and classification. The materials will be used as exhibits in charging the culprits. Police are also narrowing down on the producer and composer of the song "Takataka" banned recently by the Board for its misogynistic relics. ” Rewads
The song has been bannedfrom airplay on TV, radio and distribution online due to ‘its potential to normalise gender violence and degradation of women.’
