The video by Kenyan band Art Attack dubbed ‘Same Love’, depicts same sex relationships and was banned because “it does not adhere to the morals of the country”.
In an interview with Word Is, Art Attack said: “Obviously, someone alerted KFCB about the video. It’s that simple, really. Either that or they stalk me. And were among the first people to watch it after it dropped. Kidding, they must have heard it from the grapevine, really. And then sprung to action.”
When asked what they felt about the ban, they responded, “I expected a ban anyway. I was actually surprised it took that long — a week — for them to eventually ban it. So I wasn’t surprised. Bans happen all the time. These are the same guys who banned 50 Shades of Grey, right? And still allow us to watch Empire, Haves and Have Nots and other shows with a strong gay narrative? Hmmm. OK.”
The group of rappers under the Art Attack umbrella added that the ban was not the end of the narrative but just an interesting start.
“We can’t divulge what’s in store. Surely, you will have to wait and watch it happen. KFCB’s ban is not the end of the narrative. But the interesting start. We’re emboldened. And will be rolling out hotter stuff in no time.”
The group concluded by hitting out at their critics.
“What adults do in the confines of their bedroom is their own business. Not anyone else’s. Not the government’s. Nor the public’s. And certainly not the business of Twitter users. Live and let live. As for the Bible-quoting bigots, start a church. We are not listening.”
