Authorities in collaboration with Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) are hunting down the producer and composer of controversial song Takataka by Nairobi-based musician Alvindo.
This follows meeting between the film regulator and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations on Friday, April 26, and whom TUKO.co.ke understands are in receipt of 230 DVDs of the song.
The KFCB Chief Executive Officer Ezekiel Mutua holds that the composition which is characterised by crude language against perceived lover, is in violation of the law.
“The materials will be used as exhibits in charging the culprits. Police are also narrowing down on the producer and composer of the song Takataka banned recently by the Board for its misogynistic relics,” revealed Mutua.
Mutua expressed concern the singer’s management has launched the video despite government ban and subsequent summons to appear before the board.
“The culprits will serve as an example that the war against unrated films and dirty content is not empty talk. There will be nowhere to hide for people who break the law with impunity in the name of creativity,” he added.
It is also understood the two artiste never submitted the music to the board for examination and approval as dictated by Section 12 (2) of the Films and Stage Plays Act CAP 222.
In the three-minute track, furious Alvindo condemns his alleged ex girlfriend to death as he says he would attend her funeral to sneer at and celebrate her death for dumping him.
