“Umeskiza songs mob za watoi.”Kenyans trash Mama Wambo’s new song ‘Mapochopocho’
After they released ‘Tiga Wana’, Size 8 and Willy Paul were condemned by many including the radio queen herself, Caroline Mutoko who called the song “un-Christian.”
But despite the negativity the song received it has performed exceptionally well on You Tube.
This year, Mama Wambui went back to the studio to release ‘Mapochopocho’ which was recognition for the abundant blessings God has given her in her life. “God you have given me so much. Your blessings in my life are over flowing....” She captioned the promotional post for the video.
But it seemed Mapochopocho was a miss, judging form the comments on You Tube and Instagram where the most vocal netizens reside. From comments telling her to quit Gospel for secular music to others telling her she had lost her way, the criticism was ‘Mapochopocho’.
Here are some reactions:
Githinji Titus :Now this is worse, just quit gospel and be the real you. Stop forcing yourself to be someone you can never be. #verybadsong
Flavian Emmanuel: If only this song was a secular one, it would be a hit. Hapo kwa Gospel kidogoooo, bado. Dj Mo did a disfavour to this lady, he could just leave her to continue singing secular music
Esther January:Afadhali yesu was a great song mama Wambo. It blesses full time. What is happening to you right now???? Do you always mingle with female gospel artistes like Sarah K among others and know what it means to sing gospel? ?? you have been my favourite and I like you so big, but you are losing it.
Peninah Muriuki: WARATHESEEEEEE? Let me stick to my peddler.....Sauti Sol, Nyansh.., Kambua, Masika. Ati Mapochoreee we Tigawana nyina wambo. SMH.
Osowa Cyber: I have listen to this song and now am hungry. I think Size 8 wrote this song ju alikuwa na ubao. Nani anakubaliana na mimi hapo? lol.
