The video released on the 20th has already garnered controversies and also prompted the Kenya Film Classification Board Ezekiel Mutua as “..defying the norms and expectations of the society”, reported by Citizen TV, Kenya.
The Kenya Film Classification Board is a state corporation whose mandate is to regulate the creation, broadcasting, possession, distribution and exhibition of films by rating them.
