This is EMBARRASSING Sir!— Kaka (@SikuNjema_) May 25, 2021
We've been saying that this WIZARD should be stopped but you kept silent. Did you have to wait for this to happen? EMBARAMBAMBA is a mental case who needs to be locked up either at Mathari mental hospital or in prison. Kindly do your job and spare us.
In a rejoinder to KOT who expressed a different opinion, Mutua said he only picked issue with the content displayed.
“The issue is not that Embarambamba is a gospel singer doing secular stuff. That's a personal matter. The issue is that the video is explicit and amounts to indecent exposure” said Mutua in the tweet.
