The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) Chief Executive Dr Ezekiel Mutua has expressed interest in learning sheng’ after Mbogi Genjes’ win at Kisima Awards.
Dr Mutua took to social media to express his interest in learning the language after Mbogi Genje won the Group of the Year Award at Kisima Awards beating top Kenyan music group Sauti Sol.
Mutua wrote a caption above a screenshot of a newspaper article, which had covered Mbogi Genjes’ victory over Sauti Sol at Kisima awards.
“Now I have to learn sheng. This Mbogi Genje generation must be redeemed. They are making a statement. . .Congratulations to the Zamaradi Production for winning the 1M Clean Content prize!” he captioned.
Previously, Mutua has been staunch in expressing his dislike of the gengetone genre arguing that it promotes indecency.
Meanwhile, this is not the first time he has singled Mbogi Genje as a group, to make a point about the Gengetone genre.
Previously, Mutua had posed a question on Twitter for parents of the Gengetone stars citing Mbogi Genje and their hit song ‘Kidungi’.
"Those kids who do Kidungi and Mbogi Genje or whatever, whose kids are these? Are their parents proud of them? Those kids who sing dirty things or post their n...des on social media, whose kids are they? Don't they have parents?'' he posted.
This new development of his interest with Sheng might help bridge the gap between him and the Gengetone artists.
