Embakasi East MP Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino has weighed in on the raging debate surrounding a viral video of dramatic Kisii gospel artist Christopher Nyangwara Mosioma commonly known as Embarambabmba.

This comes after the artist was recorded dancing with a woman in a compromising situation.

In his message, Babu Owino says the artist should be lauded for dancing with fellow humans given that he is known for dangling on trees, animals and rolling in the mud while performing his songs.

"We need to at least celebrate Embarambamba. He has stopped climbing trees and is now climbing people. What an improvement. Look at life from the positive side," he wrote on Facebook.

The sensational Kisii artist has generated a lot of buzz on social media after he was recorded dancing on top of a woman while performing at an event along Thika Road.

Kenyans on social media debated on the incident with a section of them castigating the artist for going overboard.

The artist, however, defended himself saying the dance complemented the content of the song.

“Lakini ile kitu nataka niambie wakenya ni kwamba, kabla haujacomment, angalia the statement of the song ambayo inasema umetoa wapi upusi ya kufanya hivi vitu ya upusi (What I want to say is that, before you comment on the video footage, assess the statement of the song which criticizes sexual immorality),” he said.

The video attracted attention of Kenya Films Classification Board (KFCB) boss Ezekiel Mutua who said; “Embarambamba…that’s gross. You have crossed the line!"
