Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) Chief Executive Officer Ezekiel Mutua has banned mega hit ‘Kwangaru’ from being performed or listened to by school going children.
The ban, which comes way late, is the first among many to come as KFCB continues to clear the airwaves.
“That song has a bad meaning, we have banned it in schools,” the KFCB stated.
Mutua warned teachers from allowing students to listen to the song saying it corrupts their minds.
“Dances and discos must be regulated to ensure foreign artistes do not flock to Kenya to erode our values, cultures and tradition. Why do they perform music that has been banned in their countries to Kenya?” he asked.
The KFCB boss stated that he would ask the Ministry of Education to take action against school heads who defy the order.
“It will not be business as usual, foreign musicians who are coming to undermine our cultures and values, children are singing for their mothers inama inama even in schools,” Mutua said.
