Social Media Influencer and Capital FM’s production manager, Joe Muchiri, has always been outspoken. He always knows how to ruffle feathers and get people talking.
However, his latest outburst may have taken his crass nature a bit too far.
Screenshots of Joe Muchiri saying that a lady who did not want to vote for Nyashinki – after he was nominated for the MTV EMA – should be raped with a cactus have hit the net.
A post by a violinist identified as Wanjiru Chenyiza Maina went viral earlier this week because of its controversial nature.
The post angered Kenyans who felt that she wasn’t being patriotic by blatantly saying she wouldn’t vote for Nyashinki.
After Wanjiru Maina got a lot of attention for her post, she later defended her statement saying,
“It not a patriotism thing…it’s either I like you or I don’t. Some of ya’ll have stacked albums by Beyoncé, Rihanna…but you wouldn’t buy an album for that person who sang in your vernacular language at your relative’s wedding and her album was like 500 bob while for Rihanna’s you went through the trouble of buying online,waiting like a month to have it shipped to your place. Gerarahia😂😂😂😂😂😂😂. Its preference guys…and that’s just it for me.”
Joe Muchiri posted the hateful remark on a Whatsapp group full of artistes and entertainers titled “I Love 254 Music”
Based on the screenshots, it is clear that most of the artistes in the group didn’t condone his horrible remarks.
Filmmaker Virani Elchie removed Joe Muchiri from the group and took to Facebook to publicise the hate comment saying,
“Popular socialite and radio personality Joe Muchiri prays for a lady to be mutilated by Cactus! Wow Kenya how did we get here? In Kenya we have normalized rape! Apparently this man has a top position at Capital FM Kenya.”
