Ethic Music Group Apologizes Over ‘Tarimbo’ Lyrics

By Wilkister Alao / November 5, 2019 | 12:54 pm




Ethic Music group has come out to apologize to the public today,5th November, through their official Twitter handle after Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua called for their arrest.

In their social media post, the group came out to say that the song’s lyrics were meant for entertainment and not meant to offend anyone.

“As Ethic, we are truly sorry for any offense caused by the lyrics to our song. We apologize to any offended persons to whom the lyrics may have sparked displeasing memories or emotions. Rest assured that we did not mean to disrespect anyone,” read the post.

KFCB CEO, Ezekiel Mutua protested over Ethic’s group’s newest song ‘Tarimbo’ saying it is immoral and promotes violence and rape of women.

Mutua called on the DCI to arrest the whole group before proceeding to write to google to have the lyrics to the song dropped by google as it proved not to have regard for morality.

It is not the first time for the Kenya Film Classification Board to call on songs to be banned and be restricted on Google and YouTube.

A few months ago, Mutua called for a hit song, ‘Wamlambez’ by Sailors and ‘Vitamin U’ by Timmy Tdat saying that they had dirty and explicit content.

The banning of the songs was followed by an uproar from fans who accused Mutua of killing creativity in the country, but that did not bring him (Mutua) down.

Mutua told off his critics saying that Wamlambez and Tarimbo singers were not artists but ‘demented circus thugs’ who should be tamed rather than left to promote indecency in the country.

Mutua vowed to tighten the belt in fighting immorality and indecency among singers and artists or the wave of immorality in Kenya is going to see the country lose a generation in the name of creativity.

He added that content does not have to be dirty to sell and that singers can be creative without violating content classifications set up by KFCB.
