Who should we believe? Mutua or BASATA
The Kenyan music Industry has witnessed, a rare awakening since the Play KE Music initiative was ignited by rapper Khaligraph Jones.
Right now musicians are expressing themselves fully without beating around the bush, with the new generation of artiste flocking the market with their own coded language that somehow needs an interpreter to understand, if you are from the generation of our parents.
A section of listeners argue that, the new kids on the block need to be restricted due to the raunchy lyrics always employed in their songs, while others feel freedom of expression is key in this game.
Kenyan Moral Police Ezekiel Mutua, seems to be determined to literally “Stop Reggae” after restricting two of Kenya’s favorite songs Walambez by Sailors Gang and Tetema by Rayvanny and Diamond to only being played in clubs and Bars.
Mutua argued that the two songs are pure pornography, and they don’t hold the threshold for public consumption.
"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, strictly for adults!” said Mutua.
However, in a quick rejoinder Tanzania's BASATA explained that Tetema is a certified song that went through proper procedure before being released and is therefore good for public consumption.
"Tumekuwa tukifuatilia nyimbo za wasanii wa hapa nchini na kuwaita wanapokosea. Tunatoa onyo na hata kufungia nyimbo zao, lakini huu (TETEMA) hauna shida ndio maana nasema sijui wametumia vigezo gani kuuzuia usichezwe mchana,” said BASATA's Godfrey Mngereza.
Who should we listen to Ezekiel Mutua or Tanzania’s BASATA?
Tanasha Donna warns Diamond
Tanasha Donna has fired a tough warning at her boyfriend Diamond Platnumz, saying that if her ever cheats on her, she will never touch him again.
"And year I love my baby daddy but if he f**k another b***h, I won’t ever ever touch him (he knows it),” wrote Tanasha.
Diamond is known to be a serial cheater and his cheating behaviors are the ones that crushed his relationship with Ugandan boss lady Zari Hassan.
But since hooking up with Tanasha, the WCB president promised that he will never cheat on her, because he has decided to settle down and focus with one woman by his side.
Do you think, Diamond is a changed man ama Msee wa Kucheat atacheat tu?
The Chipukeezy and Ebru TV standoff
The news of Chipukeezy’s fall-out with Ebru TV was received with mixed reactions, after the funny man complained of frustrations and harassment at the station.
Chipukeezy alleged that he had been told to fire Kartelo, who was a permanent feature on his show on grounds that it had turned out to be too "ghetto”.
However, the station defended its action, stating that they did not part ways with Kartelo due to what Chipukeezy termed as lots of “ghettoness” on the Show, but failure by the former (Kartelo) to deliver.
"Ebru did not terminate Kartelo for what Chipukeezy claims as ‘ghetto-ness’ but we no longer wanted to work with him which is our right as the management of Ebru.”
Following the stand-off, Chipukeezy decided to shift his show to YouTube, a worldwide streaming platform where he can enjoy his free space with no restrictions.
Weezdom Back to EMB Records
The Prodigal son is Back home.

“No One can deny that Bahati has Supported many New Artiste’s than any other in this current Industry but ata bila Kumsifu Tunaona Vile God anamlipa. I also took a few Days off the Music and Social Media to allow God to Mould me to be the Artist HE wants and it feels Great to be Back for this New Level.
