Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua has lashed out at controversial musician Esther Akoth alias Akothee after dirty photos of her during a performance went viral online.
The singer has come under strong criticism from Kenyans online over stunts she made during a performance.
In a post on social media on Sunday, Mutua better known as the Kenyan 'moral police' has condemned Akothee over what he describes as "filthy and stupids stunts."
Mutua accuses the "Oyoyo" hit maker of using immoral tactics to remain relevant in the Kenyan entertainment industry.
“Kenya has got talent but as long as we keep celebrating this kind of madness, our entertainment industry will never grow. Akothee is talented but the filthy and stupid stunts she has to pull to remain relevant should concern all of us."
“What’s worse is to see grown-up men and women celebrating this scatological obscenity in the name of entertainment,” says Mutua.
Mutua says that musicians like Akothee can't be role models for young Kenyan girls and terms her behavior as demonic.
“People like Akothee cannot be the role models for our daughters. Music doesn’t have to be dirty to sell. How I wish artists like Akothee would know how much influence they have on our youths and try to use that influence to produce content that is edifying."
"This kind is crass, moronic and a theatre of the absurd. It’s demonic to the core and only appeals to debilitating and incorrigible perverts and brainless audiences,” hard-hitting Mutua notes.
“Akothee must stop this idiosyncrasy. There’s no dignity in this crap either for her or even her audience,” concludes Mutua.
