Ezekiel Mutua has finally slapped Sauti Sol with watershed period ban. The Kenya Film and Classification Board warns TV stations of dire consequences if they dare play ‘Melanin’ during the watershed period.
‘Melanin’ will not be played on TV during the watershed period which runs from 5am to 10pm. Ezekiel Mutua clarifies in a statement to the public that he hasn’t banned the song to its entirety.
Mutua says Sauti Sol’s song can’t be played during the watershed period due to undesirable elements like nudity and objectification of women under the guise of black beauty.
The statement says Sauti Sol released their video without complying with Film and Stage Act, Cap 222. Mutua says KFCB board has written to Sauti Sol to submit the video for examination and classification for age suitability.
