The Kenya Film Classification Board-KFCB has restricted Wamlambez and Tetema songs.
In Wamlambez song the group responds wamnyonyez! lyrics that may have led to the ban in public places
The board says the songs contain vulgar lyrics and should never be played or performed in public.
Restricted to clubs
KFCB CEO Doctor Ezekiel Mutua said the songs should be played only within clubs and not in public places.
In a statement to newsrooms on Tuesday Mutua termed the two songs as dirty and not sustainable for public consumption especially where children are concerned.
“Both songs are pornographic in nature, and are not suitable for mixed company,” read part of the statement.
Songs doing well
The Sailors’ who are behind the ‘Wamlambez’ have so far attracted 3.8 million views on Youtube while Tanzania based WCB has attracted 27.1 million views.
“While we may not ban them because they are coded, it’s important for the public to know that they are dirty and unsuitable for mixed company. Let them be restricted to clubs, strictly for adults,” he said.

However, Wamlambez a composition from Miracle boy, Shalkido, Lexxy Yung and Qoqosjuma has become the youthful generation anthem.
Mutua says the song has explicit content and must be restricted.
On the other hand, Tetema, a Tanzania composition from Naseeb Abdul Juma aka Diamond and Raymond Shaban Makyusa aka Ryvanny according to Mutua should not be performed or entertain people in public.
‘Embrace’ political campaigns
He criticized politicians for dancing to the tune especially in the ‘Embrace’ campaigns.
“It’s embarrassing to see even national leaders singing and dancing to the obscenity in public,” noted Mutua.
In the song Tetema, Diamond and Ryvanny at some point drops the lyrics … ‘Twende nikupige nyembe’ that fans have linked it to shaving woman’s private parts.
