You owe Akothee an apology, Passaris tells Ezekiel Mutua

Nairobi Women representative Esther Passaris has come out defending singer Akothee against Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) chair Ezekiel Mutua’s tongue lashing over her controversial weekend performance.

Appearing on KTN’s Morning Express hosted by Michael Gitonga, Passaris opined that Mutua owes Akothee an apology over the strong terms he used to describe the “Lotto” singer.

“Akothee is talented but the filthy and stupid stunts she has to pull to remain relevant should concern all of us….This kind is crass, moronic and a theatre of the absurd.

“It's demonic to the core and only appeals to debilitating and incorrigible perverts and brainless audiences,” wrote Mutua.

According to Passaris, Akothee’s performance was in front of a grown audience and even her parents who were present during her performance did not object.

“Her father and her mother were on stage, very proud of their little girl. That is entertainment, that’s her profession and business.”

“I think Ezekiel you owe her an apology because you insulted her and called her demonic. You know she has a following and she didn’t do it in a school compound or for underage children.

“I think you are overstepping you boundaries in trying to tell us how we should live, be, think, see and behave.

“Regulate what you need to regulate for our children. I hope the courts will let us watch “Rafiki” because I’d like to watch it. We should stop wearing blinders,” said Passaris
