Singer Alvindo who is behind the viral banned song Taka Taka is not backing down from Kenya Films and Classification Board (KFCB) and it’s chairman Ezekiel Mutua push of making sure the song doesn’t hit airwaves.
The body banned Taka Taka saying that it’s a song that degrades women and shouldn’t by played by all the DJs and local media.
“The KFCB has made a decision to restrict the song Takataka by Alvin aka Alvindo. The song produced by Fast Cash MusicKe is restricted due to its obscene and degrading lyrics that advocate for violence against women by equating them to trash,” the KFCB boss said.
Alvindo however, said that everyone in Kenya has the freedom of expression so there’s no point of banning the song. He confessed that the song was something that happened to him and wasn’t meant to incite any violence. His manager, Eric, added that they spent Ksh 1 million for the video therefore it had to be released.
“The video is ready and we could be releasing it next week. We spent a lot of money on it. We invested over KSh 1 million for the video so it does not make sense cancelling it. Mutua banned the audio all because he misunderstood it,” Eric said.
The video has the likes of DJ Shiti, Shanikwa and KRG the Don.
