This most recent one has however rubbed Ezekiel Mutua, the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO the wrong way, prompting him to call upon the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to arrest the producers of the songs.

The lyrics detail normalization of the rape culture and pedophilia which according to majority of Kenyans will do more harm to the younger children in the society.

Taking to his Twitter handle yesterday, Mutua stated that the video for the song depicted immorality and needed to be condemned.

“Do these perverted producers have children? How does a sane adult try to normalize rape, prostitution or pedophilia in the name of gengetone hits? The video Soko by Ethic is despicable immorality that should be condemned by all right-thinking people,” he said.

Further, speaking to a local blog today, April 20, 2020, Mutua stated that he was seeking to have the group’s Youtube channel suspended and the producers of their music arrested as they had crossed the limits too many times.
