Enda ucheze twist - EX CJ Willy Mutunga hits out at Ezekiel Mutua over ban on Wamlambez
Mutunga defends Wamlambez and Tetema songs
Mutua had on Tuesday morning condemned Wamlambez and Tetema, two popular street anthems, saying they would only be played in clubs.
“Tetema and Wamlambez songs are strictly forbidden outside of clubs and bars. It's embarrassing to see even national leaders singing and dancing to the obscenity in public. The lyrics are dirty and not suitable for public consumption, especially children.”
“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!” Mutua said in a statement.
Mutunga, popularly regarded as the “cool man of the law” was not pleased with the ban and called on Mutua to allow young people to express themselves artisitically.
The former Chief Justice challenged Mutua to continue enjoying the old school dance styles such as Kung Fu and Twist.
“Wacha vijana wacheze bwana! Wewe endelea kucheza Twist na Kung Fu!” Mutunga said in a message directed at the KFCB CEO.
