"It’s full of nudity and obscenity" Ezekiel Mutua vows to ban Sauti Sol's new song ‘Melanin’

It’s déjà vu moment for Sauti Sol after they dropped ‘Melanin’ featuring Patoranking. Only three years ago the quartet’s video was banned over erotic scenes.

Sauti Sol’s ‘Nishike’ sparked uproar when the video was dropped in April 2014. The song was banned in local TV stations owing to its explicit nature.

No lesson learnt

Sauti Sol dropped ‘Melanin’ on November 20th 2017 and it’s generating the same response as ‘Nishike’. The song is great yes but the video has rubbed some people the wrong way.

‘Melanin’ has already attracted the attention of moral police Ezekiel Mutua. The Kenya Film Classification Board CEO has vowed to ban Sauti Sol’s new song.

It’s absolutely pornography

Ezekiel Mutua termed ‘Melanin’ as offensive by accepted standards of morality and decency. Mutua expresses his deep disappointment with Sauti Sol while speaking to Citizen Digital.

“I have watched the video, the scenes are inappropriate and it’s full of nudity, obscenity and it should be saved for watershed period, Sauti Sol is taking the wrong direction, defying the norms and expectations of the society, they don’t know that they can still be famous without being obscene. The elements that we look at are the frequency, intensity, nudity and obscenity and Sauti sol’s is adult rated,” Ezekiel Mutua said.

Watch ‘Melanin’ in the video below:







  1. Mutua stop being childish bwana
