The Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) declined to ban the hit song Wajinga Nyinyi that on Saturday, December 14 added its voice on the war against corruption and other vices bedevilling Kenya.
Dr Ezekiel Mutua, the KFCB boss, said King Kaka enjoys the fruits of Kenya’s growing and vibrant democracy and instead, urged Kenyans to reflect on the message in the poetic piece that has rattled the political class and pricked the conscience of the nation.
He further directed those affected to seek redress in court as KFCB will not interfere with Wajinga Nyinyi’s production.
“Let people reflect on the message, but the fact that the rapper can do such production and walk scot-free is evidence that our democracy has come of age. Try that in Uganda or Rwanda and things will be different!” He stated on Facebook.
In Wajinga Nyinyi, King Kaka fiercely calls out Kenyans and uncompromisingly highlights their perceived stupidity and hypocrisy when dealing with pertinent issues fracturing the society.
A position supported by Alliance of Real Change party leader Mwalimu Mohammed Abduba Dida.
“Kenya has about 50 million citizens and less than 2,000 elective positions. Ironically, when Kenyans get the opportunity to vote, they always pick the worst possible choices then spend the following five years crying. #WajingaNyinyi is a good piece of activist art. Thank you.”
