Ezekiel Mutua Defends ‘Mali Safi Chito’ Hit Maker.
Ezekiel Mutua, the CEO of the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK), has stepped forward to support emerging Kalenjin artist Millicent Jerotich, popularly known as Marakwet Daughter, following her recent impassioned remarks.
In a video that has garnered widespread attention, the ‘Mali Safi Chito’ sensation declared her firm intention to block anyone participating in what she deemed as detrimental behavior—specifically, the spreading of negativity on her social media platforms.
Having blocked several individuals, she confidently asserted her commitment to maintaining peace of mind and recommended that dissenting opinions be expressed in alternative forums.
“You are used to using bad language on my comment section. Mumezoea sanaa kupupuu inbox yangu pale TikTok, pupuu sasa hapa. Nkt!”the artist said
The online community expressed disapproval of her chosen expressions, with some contending that the surge of 15 minutes of fame had possibly gone to her head.
In response to the criticism she faced, Dr. Ezekiel Mutua utilized his Facebook platform to request netizens to afford the artist some respite.
“Too much ado about nothing on Mali Safi Chito. Leave the girl alone. She is loving her moments of fame………Don’t rain on her parade! She might have spoken out of turn and she may even sound arrogant and conceited. But she needs guidance and support, not condemnation and malicious attacks or criticism,” Ezekiel said.
He proceeded to staunchly support Marakwet Daughter, emphasizing that her actions were a result of provocation.
“You see there are people who can’t stand an assertive woman who knows how to protect her space. They bring outdated and primitive debates into everything one says and look for fault where there’s none.
I have viewed the clips and followed the comments and came to the conclusion that she was provoked to act as she did,” the MCSK CEO said.
Finishing up, he went on to note that the artist was right in her space to dictate how her page ran and what she allowed/ didn’t allow there.
“Even on the issue of her asking the DJ to pull down the content with adaptations of her song, she was right.
“The assertion that they were promoting is neither here nor there. Let the girl be!” He added.
