Controversial Pastor Paul Kuria, popularly known as Man Kush is angry. He wants all Sheng songs banned.
While the importance of music is to entertain and educate, most Sheng’ songs only spoil the youth, he says. They are either talking about s3*, encouraging the use of drugs or promoting other vices.
Speaking to the Star, Man Kush said the young generation is being taught bad manners by supporting artistes in releasing the ‘Wamlambez’ kinda songs.
So, Sailors, the group behind the hit song ‘Wamlambez’ did ‘Pekejeng’, a song that has been trending in the streets. We asked to know if Man Kush has heard the song.
He said the last time he heard that word was a few years ago, when someone was caught having sex with a dog in Mwea.
“The guy who was narrating used those words. He said, ‘Tulimpata na mbwaakipekejeng pekejeng’,” he said.”So artistes are corrupting the minds of the youth, but the problem with the society is they are embracing and adopting those words and using them.”
He mentioned another song you all know, ‘Lamba Lolo’, which means giving a blow job but has become a way of telling someone off. “What are you telling young people when they grow up?” Kush said.
Recently, controversial gospel artiste Willy Paul was trending again after releasing ‘Lamba Nyonyo’, which means lick a boob. The lyrics include, “Hey Ras, I am at home and I have lasses. Come over because it’s been a while since you licked boobs.”
Man Kush says the country is lacking morals. A song could be banned in Tanzania but be played in Kenya. ‘Nyegezi’ by Diamond Platnumz is a good example. Try attending a bash when schools are closed and you will see all the dirty songs being played there.
