I once fell into a toilet dancing – Embarambamba reveals

Christopher Musyoma aka Embarambamba as many people have come to know him, has become the notorious bad boy in gospel music at the moment.

The man has trended in 2021 after videos of him dancing like a mad man on the road went viral with the irony being that the singer does not do his music videos while under influence of drugs or alcohol.

In an interview with Jalang’o on Tuesday, the man gave his side of the story stating that he likes to incorporate comedy and theatrics into his gospel music.

He revealed that he once fell in a toilet while performing in a ceremony. He disclosed the ordeal in an interview on Jalang’o TV;

“Sasa kufika apo kwa uwanja, hio ngoma ikawekwa. Wamama ndio hawa, furaha ikanishika. Saa ile na roll, nikasonga kidogo kutoka kwa sherehe. Saa ile na roll ivo karibu na corner, nikapata naingia kwa shimo. Uzuri hio choo ilikuwa imetangulishwa udongo kidogo…”

He also defended his actions saying that his dangerous behaviors have never gotten him to hospital after he started gospel music.

But while he might defend his actions, a recent video clip of the singer running across the Southern Bypass earlier this week has many concerned.

The man was captured running across the road while shooting one of his music videos, and nearly getting hit by a bodaboda.

His dancing has previously attracted the vitriol of many Kenyans including KFCB CEO Ezekiel Mutua who stated that he was concerned for the well-being of the singer. “Come let’s find a way out. You sound ok, but ur theatrics are embarrassing & must be moderated!” Mr. Mutua said in the past.

Embarambamba should be arrested! Kenyans say after singer nearly hit by boda boda

Embarambamba has been the viral sensation in 2021 the way Tik Tok queen Azziad dominated the headlines last year after her glorious dancing titillated Kenyans.

Unlike Azziad who got nearly unanimous praise for her dancing skills and wonderful smile, the gospel musician from Kisii County has divided Kenyans with his antics.

Some like Ezekiel Mutua have been on record warning that the singer might be a danger to himself. And just like clockwork Embarambamba hasn’t disappointed with his most recent crazy behaviour.

The artist was captured on video been a danger to himself and others while shooting one of his infamous music videos. In the video, Embarambamba is seen trying to cross the busy Southern Bypass while a bodaboda bike is on the road.

The musician is lucky that his quick reflexes allow him to stop just in time before he runs onto the road where he would most likely have been hit by the rider.

Kenyans on Twitter didn’t spare the artiste and asked for something to be done about the gospel singer’s behaviour. Check out the full video below;

Embarambamba is not a role model – Kenyans answer overwhelmingly in poll

This year, Kisii musician Embarambamba has captivated the nation with his over-the-top antics which have gone viral on social media.

His antics involve running around in a garden and at one point, jumping atop a terrified cow. The startled cow proceeds to throw him off its back before running off.

In another scene off one of his music videos, Embarambamba is seen lying in the mud while donning a white suit.

His antics have prompted the launch of a petition calling for him to be barred from performing such stunts. The petition addressed the CS Ministry of Health, Kenya Mental Health Board, Kenya Psychiatrists Association, Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB), Kisii Council of Elders among other bodies saying that the singer’s antics might prove harmful not only to himself but also to fans.

“Nguzo Africa on behalf of concerned Kenyans hereby petition the above-mentioned institutions to urgently stop the Kisii artist “Embarambamba” whose official names are Chris Mosioma from performing peculiar stunts that may affect his safety, followers and the environment,” the petition read in part.

Our poll question read, Is Embarambamba a role model to you or a momentary sensation that will soon be forgotten? The poll results are in and most Kenyans believe he is a flash in the pan whose 15 minutes of fame will soon end.

Read some of the comments below from Kenyans who voted on the poll;

I honestly don’t understand why this Embarambamba should an issue, he does whatever he does to survive so is any of us.

Talks all morning every day the only time he pauses when music is playing and we do not question his intentions instead we love him for it.

None of the above. He is not a role model but neither is he a sensation, momentary or otherwise.

Aty role model?? Oooliskia wapi?

Atachoka soon.

Why am I thinking of mud anyways the man himself is doing whatever he does to survive, can be any of us.

Embarambamba danger to himself-Ezekiel Mutua voices concern for gospel singer

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.
