Kenyans yesterday woke up to the news that Citizen TV had banned P-Unit’s smash hit “You Guy” from its playlist. Apparently, Royal Media Services decided that the song is too explicit to be played on prime television and it would no longer air it.
Their statement in part read,
“the video is too explicit for prime TV airing and while the show targets youthful adults, there is evidently a very young audience too due to the fact that it is an interesting show that also shows during hours when most working adults are not even home to watch any TV”
Whatever Citizen saw as explicit is still not clear, as watching the video reveals nothing out of the ordinary, and those are the sentiments many who commented on this move share. Below are some comments compiled from Facebook and Twitter.
