Comedian Eric Omondi and singer Bien Barasa have responded to news that former Kenya Film Classification Board CEO was appointed as the CEO of Music Copyright Society Of Kenya.
In a comment on Instagram, Eric Omondi termed Mutua’s appointment as a step in the wrong direction.
“Hii Kenya tunasonga steps mbili Mbele Alafu Kumi Nyuma🤦♂️🤦♂️. Wembe itakua ni ile ile. Akileta unafiki tutafanya kama WILL SMITH,” read the comedian’s post.
Omondi, who celebrated Mutua’s ouster from KFCB has been a big critic of the incoming MCSK boss, accusing him of stifling the creativity among Kenyan filmmakers.
Bien, who is one-quarter of Sauti Sol boy band, also expressed displeasure with the news of Ezekiel’s return to the creative and entertainment industry.
The Mbwembwe hitmaker reacted with vomit emojis on Instagram and added a short statement on his Twitter account.
“Ezekiel Mutua’s appointment is a disappointment. What did he do for film? Kenya continues to elevate mediocrity. This is just sad,” he said.
“Fellow label mate Willis Chimano described Mutua’s appointment as recycling spent resources.
“Ezekiel Mutua’s appointment is such nonsense… Recycling bin inc. That’s what we are,” he said.
