Embarambamba has either been a blessing to the gospel community or an embarrassment, so much so that Ezekiel Mutua has noticed his antics.
For those who might not know him, Embarambamba is a Kisii gospel artiste who has made a trademark out of rolling in the mud and pulling of other spine-chilling stunts, while doing his music videos.
The musician’s gimmicks have now drawn the attention of the Kenya Films and Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua, who is concerned for him and those around him.
“Why do I feel like Embarambamba is a danger to himself and that his fans could be cheering him to self-destruction? Is this style sustainable? Is it even sane?” Mutua posed.
The moral cop suggested that the artiste’s fans were the ones egging him on to proceed with his stunts, unaware of the dangers that could be staring at him.
For his part, Embarambamba has been on record defending his daring music videos, saying the Holy Spirit’s power inspires them.
In his latest music video, Embarambamba was spotted holding a bible while kneeling in the mud as he donned a white suit. “I pray for wisdom to get a way to reach my President Uhuru Kenyatta to assist me to preach your word and lift your name high, both in kids and adults.”
And who takes care of the laundry that gets messed up? The artiste has claimed in the past that his wife takes care of his laundry and has never complained about her husband’s behaviour.
