Controversial singer Chris Mosioma, aka Embarambamba, is the talk of the town yet again. This is due to his usual antiques that leave netizens puzzled and shocked.
His tribute song to President Mwai Kibaki has left many with a bitter taste in their mouths.
Embarambamba defended his very unusual antiques as his expression of art and that he means no ill will.
In an interview with the Star’s Word Is, the Kisii gospel star said, “I’m just a cool person and I know how to handle myself. Given a chance, I will be very cool.”
His theatrics have cost his chances to perform in government events because the organisers fear that he may go off script and cause chaos.
The artist said he would like to perform during Kibaki’s burial even though he was banned from performing in government functions.
“The last time Uhuru came to Kisii, I was told to reduce my drama as they were afraid I would cause tension,” he said.
When President Uhuru Kenyatta was on a tour of the Kisii country he also met creatives. This is so much so artist who produce soapstone art that is the biggest export from the region.
The President pledged that a standard stadium would be built in Kisii County and that leaders from the region would be appointed to Government positions as “a national Government cannot be national if it is not inclusive. We are inclusive and will be inclusive”.
Embarambamba said he will remember President Kibaki for enabling free education and giving Kenyans a new constitution.
Embarambamba said he takes after his mother who used to perform for President Moi in Kisii.
“I am very talented and I have been in the industry for 11 years.”
