Blogger Robert Alai Onyango is well known for airing his views with no apologies whatsoever. Weeks after his arrest, the blogger cannot help but keep himself and will do anything just to stay relevant. He is now slapping a local music group by the name, Gang right on their faces. The group released a song a few months ago and has gannered a whooping 900 views.
The lyrics for ‘Peleka na Rieng’ released in May, are in Sheng, a slang used by young people across Kenya, and have metaphors alluding to oral sex. The video also features offensive dance moves.
Just listened to a song called—>> PELEKA NA RIENG by GANG on Capital FM without even edits. Jesus Christ!! Is this where we are? @EzekielMutua where are you? You need to punish some of these stations.

Here were some reactions.
Alai you are struggling with mid-life crisis. You want to sound mature lakini deep down uko na ufakini sana

Uyu anateta miaka yake imempiga chenga. Back in the days there were such songs and you danced to them, we on a different/advanced era where we have to accept change. Banning will never help, find ways to make things right with them so that everyone comes out a winner in this.

Ambia Robert alai aache kua mtiaji
Stop this sh*t @RobertAlai . Inakuuma nini. Kama hautaki kusikiza just listen to what sounds better to you. Kina Kanda Bongoman can fit you.Tuende na rieng.Sare jooh ngeus bana atiniuwa
Akidai rungu bana atanijuwa
Ni mhot kuna vile ntaunguwa ah
Na maziwa jooh mi sitapumuwa ah

Kenya Film and Classification Board Chairperson Ezekiel Mutua, who is often referred to as moral police boss, was called into action over the video, this comes a week after his latest move, where Mr Mutua banned two hit songs Wamlambez and Tetema from being played in public, except in clubs and bars.
In a Twitter post, he said the two songs were “pure pornography” and “dirty and unsuitable for mixed company”.
