Ezekiel Mutua Is Not Impressed With Sauti Sol’s New Video – ‘Melanin’

Award Winning Kenyan Boy band just dropped a scintillating visual to the jam ‘Melanin’ which features Nigerian hitmaker Patoranking. The video just went viral via social media and currently the number one Trending video on Youtube Kenya with over 200k views in a day.

But not everyone is celebrating the boy band’s innovation and celebration of the African Girl. One of the party poopers is Dr. Ezekeiel Mutua, CEO of the Kenya Film Classification Board. The self-proclaimed moral police vented out terming the video as “absolute pornography”.

Speaking to Citizen Digital, Mr. Mutua went ahead to admit that he watched the video several times. He added, “the scenes are inappropriate and it’s full of nudity, obscenity and it should be saved for watershed period,” he said. “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”.

To back up his words, Mutua says he will seek legal redress for the video to be banned. He will also forward the video to his team of experts on the board who will classify the video looking for elements of frequency, intensity, nudity, and obscenity. In the past, Mutua is pushed for the ban of Sauti Sol’s Nishike hit terming it not suitable for family viewing. Hence he thought the boy band should have learned from their mistake.

Responding to the wind of the ban, Sauti sol said Mutua is not the intended target audience for the jam. The group maintains that its an expression of art and they are will to push boundaries to celebrate Africa women.
