When Obscenity Becomes a Constituent of Music
31 July 2012, 16:06
When you go through the channels on your T.V. these days, music is all over the waves. Naked people dance there, revealing what-do-you-think-it-is without jitters just to make you ‘happy’ and 'entertained'.
Currently, entertainment has become a course like others and it’s no longer hard for our mothers to say ‘My son makes people laugh. That’s his work’ when they meet on their weekly chamas. However entertainment industry has gone too far, too far that entertainment has lost its meaning.
Aristotle said that music is able to provoke more than a speech, and its only clear that we are being provoked to do the nutty even in the thresh hold of our homes, at the comfort of our beds and couches together with our children.
Our women have now become diminutive of what African culture was when they swing themselves in trances, influencing even the young and beautiful who are innocent in its meaning. Black women have been a catchment area for successful entertainment world wide and modern music without a black woman won’t sell a dollar. And when did sex become music constituent, that they cannot hide its sanctity?
Its time for the African woman to wake up, and instead of her whining always for equality, she should look at what she is doing to make the man underestimate her. Now that is worth endless whining.
For obscenity to prosper it depends on who the target is likely to hear, see or read content of an item taken as a whole. Unfortunately, everyone is deemed an adult these days for the expense of making money.
At least our women should try to cover up their bodies when they go on stage-if they feel they have a talent work out-and for Gods sake stop calling them ‘goodies’. They can be goodies at the right time but a hell road when exposed in public recreational facilities, since the screens are apparently public now.
The Communication Commission of Kenya should intervene in the matter to save our children who are growing up seeing us naked and put in place measures to the kind of modern music the media should air for entertainment. Gone are the days when we were patriotic and building the nation.
Time heals –and kills- and in no time I shall swallow my bleak words when insults are hurled at me to keep quiet and watch ‘modern music’. Well, I am outdated and with morals, you are modern and naked. I win.
