Sauti Sol’s ‘Suzanna’ Cleared by KFCB over Claims of Promoting Incest

The Kenya Film and Classification Board has cleared Sauti Sol’s hit song ‘Suzanna’ over claims of promoting incest, raised by a fan.

In a tweet on Monday, KFCB boss Ezekiel Mutua noted that he has submitted the complaint to the monitoring team, and after a thorough analysis, the song was found to be suitable for general viewing.

“This complaint was brought to our attention this morning. It’s in regard to a song by @sautisol. I submitted it to our Broadcast Monitoring team for analysis and it has been given a clean bill of health and rated as GE (General Exhibition), i.e suitable for all family viewing,” he tweeted.

Reacting to the claim by the fan, and the verdict by KFCB, Sauti Sol said “These streets ain’t safe no more.”

In the complaint, the fan claimed that Sauti Sol’s hit song ‘Suzanna’ was promoting incent as ‘Senje’; which is broadly used in the song is a Luhya word for aunt.

“Sauti Sol’s hit Suzanna alias Senje should be banned by the Kenya Film Classification Board. Senje is Luhya word for aunt-the sister of your father. How then can it be that a nephew and his aunt have a relationship? To fall in love with your father’s sister is unheard of, incestuous, an abomination and illegal. Sauti Sol has lost the way on this one and should be punished. The song will corrupt the youth and should already have been proscribed. KFCB chairman Ezekiel Mutua should do the necessary,” the anonymous complainant argued.
