Mixed reactions after KFCB boss Ezekiel Mutua cancelled KSh 200k financial support for Bahati

Kenyans have expressed mixed reactions after Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) boss Ezekiel Mutua cancelled his support for singer Bahati following his controversial song Fikra Za Bahati.

The KFCB boss stated that he decided to withdraw the KSh 200,000 financial support ahead of his album release, as his latest song contravened their clean content policy.

“This week @InfoKfcb cancelled over 200k cash and other kind support to musician @BahatiKenya following the posting of videos which contravened our clean content and partnership policy. Our team decided to cancel the support and disassociate completely with the planned event,” wrote Mutua.

Bahati’s music video was majorly shot in a casino where he occasionally puffs on a cigar flanked by other gamblers.

The singer further goes ahead to diss fellow artists ranging from Sauti Sol to Daddy Owen.

Bahati started by first dissing Sauti Sol for creating a record label after he had already done that and dismissed the entire label.

He goes ahead and says, as for Ringtone, all he can is to don him a dress, further making fun of rapper Khaligraph Jones and singer Daddy Owen after his infamous divorce.

The move elicited mixed reactions with a section of netizens showing disgust towards Mutua’s judgement to musicians and their work, while others supported him.


Jaduong Ouma Wuon Kimbage: But why do you support those who have made names for themselves? There are a lot of talents roting in the streets just because they can’t afford cost of music production. Mutua, you’ve failed

Josephine Mwikali: His down fall has started, God showed a vision and told me, Bahati loved the world and he removed his hand upon him
