Christopher Musioma alias Embarambamba, has appealed to the government to support his talent.
Embarambamba has asked the government to finance his countrywide tour to enable him to popularise his music and uplift other artists.
“If I’m able to travel countrywide and uplift other upcoming artists, it will be easy for people to say that the government has supported upcoming artists and their talents,” he said.
He also noted that the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua should have supported his talent instead of criticizing it.
Musioma further defended himself from the critics he got from Mutua over his style of music stated that he was performing due to poverty and to spread the word of God.
“Someone with such power should have contributed a donation to support my talent. You can’t say I’m performing theatrics because I’m only doing this because of poverty, and to spread God’s word,” Embarambamba said.
However, the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) boss responded to his claims stating that he did not have to go to those embarrassing extremes while producing his content and must be moderate.
“Embarambamba says his theatrics are because of poverty. He’s asking for help. Brother come, let’s talk. You don’t have to do this madness for likes on social media. Come let’s find a way out. You sound ok, but your theatrics are embarrassing and must be moderated!” Mutua responded on social media.
This comes days after the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO raised concerns over the kind of content Embarambamba produces saying he could hurt himself.
“His fans could be cheering him to self-destruction. Is this style sustainable? Is it even sane? Unless he’s superhuman, this guy will hurt himself. Someone, please stop him!” Mutua posed.
The artist has come to be known for using comedy, extreme dance styles in his songs, and often throwing stunts such as rolling on the ground and sometimes climbing trees.
He further assured Kenyans who questioned his sanity that he is well and they should support him so that he has a sustainable income.
