2.Ali Kiba’s side Chick drama

“Me and Ally came along way since his return in the music world and yes both as friends and Low-key lovers kwa muda mrefu sana. I have evidence to prove ndio maana Killy alikuwa ananiita mama na wengime wote. Since naona sasa story za aajabu zinazidi maybe should be open so we end this drama ambayo mnatengeneza. Everyone huko Tabataa knows, but with respect sijawahi hata onyesha anything. So this is more like drama za Mahusiono and someone is truly hurt. Sababu tu a woman made a decision to move on, si sawa at all everyone has the right to move on and I’m sorry I hurt your feelings but it is what it is … niliamua kuji distance kwa zababu zangu and take a break ndo maana huwa sifuti messages and evidence sababu ya vitu kama hizi. By the way I ended up kila kitu 16/2/2020 and I told Ali and he has evidence as well,” reads part of a post that has since been deleted

4.Ezekiel Mutua to Mejja and Femi One
Kenya Film Classification Board CEO, Ezekiel Mutua blacklisted rapper Femi One and Mejja from the government fund meant for artists over their hit song ‘utawezana’
The song which premiered on Youtube on 1st April already enjoys over 2.6 million views on the platform and has been dominating charts since then.
In an online post, moral cop Ezekiel Mutua said the two artists should be ashamed on releasing such content.
Mutua argues that artistes should focus their energy on releasing content that will help in the fight against CoOVID-19.
“The perverts who are creating such obscenity like “Nikikupea utawezana” should be ashamed of themselves. Media houses promoting such crap too are a disgrace. Artistes should be creating inspiring content to help combat COVID-19 pandemic, not promoting sexual perversion. Our artistes must not glorify immorality in the guise of creativity. The Okonkwo Utawezana nonsense is a shallow, bizarre sexual perversion. There’s absolutely nothing creative there. That lady would be ashamed to sing such crap before her mother,” He wrote
Mutua further added that both Mejja and Femi One will be blacklisted from benefitting from the government funds meant for artists.
“The Government has a duty to protect children from premature exposure to adult content. Those producing, broadcasting, distributing or exhibiting immoral content will not benefit from Government funding and public events funded by the Government. Right now kids are at home and have access to technology as an essential tool for their studies. It’s wrong to have content that can ruin their morals being circulated with wanton abandon. It’s worse when mainstream media begins to glorify such dirty content by giving the creators airtime on TV or Radio,” He added

I wasn’t here for fame and bad blood but for fun. Shukran sana kwa the support from the fans and everyone else who made it a success. To those who always wished the worst for me I hope y’all happy now, the stage is all yours. my prayer is that no one else goes through the same again.” He wrote
