The Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) CEO, Ezekiel Mutua bans the song Taka Taka (trash) sung by artist by Alvin (Alvindo).
According to the Tuesday directive, the song, which has garnered one million views on YouTube so far, is not to be performed live or broadcast anywhere within the Republic of Kenya.
“No DJ should play the song either on broadcast station or in entertainment joints,” Mutua noted.
He added the song has been restricted due to its obscene and degrading lyrics that advocate for violence against women by equating them to trash.
“The board notes with great concern that the song was not submitted for examination and clarification, as such, it contravenes section 12 (2) of the Films and Stage Plays Act, “read part of the board’s press release.

The board also expressed that the song is a primitive piece of art that should not be celebrated in any way by the society.
“The aggressive and sadistic attitude expressed exhibited by singer seeks to not only incite men who face rejection by suitors but also justifies hatred and hard feelings that come with possible rejection,” Mutua added.
The musician, Alvin has been summoned to appear before the board within 14 days, failure to which legal proceedings shall be instituted upon him.
He is also at risk of a lifetime-ban from being a member of any Collective Management Organisation should he defy orders by the KFCB.
Taka Taka which is a property of Fastcash Music Group describes the woman in question as trash because she rejected the man.
