Alvindo, the artist behind controversial song “Taka Taka”, has promised his upcoming music will be society-friendly and educative.
The singer, who has summoned by the Kenya Films and Classifications Board (KFCB) last week following it’s ban of Taka Taka, had a sit down with the body’s CEO Ezekiel Mutua yesterday whereby they highlighted several matters regarding his ban, and his warrant of arrest.
After a lengthy meeting, the two parties came to the conclusion that while no further action would be taken against the singer, the song Takataka would be pulled down from all online platforms.
“Content that glorifies violence against women or any other segment of society will not be tolerated and unscrupulous individuals who use art for incitement or glorification of such acts will be dealt with in accordance with the law,” said KFCB.
The Board remains committed to ensuring that artists comply with the laws governing the creative industry and that freedom of expression is not abused to offend common decency or go against our moral values. 6/7 @EzekielMutua @dailynation @PeopleDailyKe pic.twitter.com/QgDmnN6CI6

Alvindo went ahead and released Taka Taka’s video after the ban insisting that there’s freedom of speech. He’s follow up project is called ‘Kunguni’, an up tempo club song that Kenyans didn’t particularly like.
After the meeting, Alvindo promised his music will change for the better.
“If I release a next song, it will be a song with a message and one that sends a positive message to society,” he said.
