Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) Chief Executive Officer Ezekiel Mutua banned 'Kwangaru' song from being performed or listened to by school going children.

Mutua, who has been dubbed as Kenyan's moral policeman cautioned head teachers against allowing pupils to sing Kwangwaru.

Dances and discos must be regulated to ensure foreign artistes do not flock to Kenya to erode our values, cultures and tradition," the KFCB boss stated.

"Why do they perform music that has been banned in their countries to Kenya?” he asked.

Speaking on Friday, the KFCB boss stated that he would ask the Ministry of Education to take action against school heads who defy the order.

It will not be business as usual, foreign musicians who are coming to undermine our cultures and values, children are singing for their mothers inama inama even in schools," Mutua said.

Tanzanian artiste Diamond Platnumz, who was hit with a ban by his government was also put on notice, as KFCB declared that they would not allow foreign artists to perform content that has been banned in their countries.

According to Mutua, the artists were colluding with clubs to pay their foreign government's money which could be revenue to Kenya Revenue Authority.
