Kamene Goro is probably one of Dr. Ezekiel Mutua's biggest fans in the country at the moment.

This is after she publicly backed the newly appointed Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) CEO to fight for Kenyan creatives.

Speaking during The Morning Kiss, Kamene and Obinna were reacting to a now-viral video of the former KFCB boss defending the term 'Sipangwingwi' which has been listed as hate speech by The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC).

The phrase originates from Exray ft Trio Mio and Ssaru's club banger and has been heavily used in rallies by several leaders.

"I read a list of terms you are not supposed to mention because you'd be persecuted...He was in an interview and said that the term is good and I will support them," Obinna said before Kamene jumped in and gave Mutua a vote of confidence as he begins his tenure.

"Wherever he's sent to do his work he'll do it well," Kamene said adding, "I am confident he will fight for musicians. And maybe a couple of leaders can take a leaf  out of his book and do their jobs!"

Mutua was speaking during an interview on TV47 this past weekend where he dared the NCIC to touch the song which he ranked as one of the best projects by Kenyan artists.

"'Sipangwingwi' is not hate speech, NCIC used 'Hatupangwingwi' and I dare them to touch it," he said.

Mutua further said he is going to fight piracy and distribute loyalty collected to musicians. The MCSK boss who was a guest at Malaika Cultural Festival in Voi shared his intent at helping Kenyan creatives start earning a decent living from their talent as compared to their current situation.

“We should appreciate our artistes like they are appreciated in other countries. Recently, Barbadian singer Rihanna joined other singers such as Jay Z, Dr. Dre, Kanye West, and others in the Forbes annual billionaires list. Why, then, should our musicians be paupers with all the entertainment they give us?” he posed.
