By now, Embarambamba has become a household name in the Kenyan interwebs. For beginners, Embarambamba is a Kisii gospel artiste who has made a trademark out of rolling in the mud and pulling of other spine-chilling stunts.
Due to the stunts in his music videos, many have had varied opinions regarding how the artist behaves.
The singer’s gimmicks have now drawn the attention of Kenya Films and Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua, who said the artiste could be endangering his life in a bid to please his fans who hype him.
“Why do I feel like Embarambara is a danger to himself and that his fans could be cheering him to self-destruction? Is this style sustainable? Is it even sane?” Mutua posed.
Mutua suggested that the artiste’s fans were the ones psyching him to proceed with his stunts, unaware of the dangers that could be staring at him.
I have a feeling that Embarambara is a danger to himself and that his fans could be cheering him to self destruction. Is this style sustainable? Is it even sane? Unless he's super human, this guy will hurt himself. Someone please stop him!

Whenever he releases a new video, Embarambmba is ever on the receiving end, with netizens bashing him due to the daring gimmicks he pulls, baffling many.
However, the self-proclaimed gospel artiste has been on record defending his escapades, saying the power of the Holy Spirit inspires them.
In his latest, Embarambamba was spotted kneeling in the mud while donning a white suit. While holding the Bible, he sang as he asked God to grant him the chance to meet President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“I pray for wisdom to get a way to reach my President Uhuru Kenyatta to assist me to preach your word and lift your name high, both in kids and adults,” Embarambamba sang.
The few fans who saw the video were concerned by how he chose to soil the sparkling suit, pitying whoever would wash it.
The artiste has always claimed that his wife takes care of his laundry and has never complained about her husband’s behaviour.
Embarambamba once revealed his suits cost him KSh 5,000 and are designed in Nairobi by select tailors.
