Kisii musical sensation Christopher Nyangwara Mosioma popularly known by the name Embarambamba has come out to defend his name following a viral raunchy video on social media that caused debate from Kenyans as well as his fans.
Embarambamba who trended for the better part of Monday night was caught on camera performing a Jamaican theme dance on top of a lady inside a club.
A section of Kenyans offended by the video, criticised the singer for inappropriate behaviour not fitting a gospel artist.

On Tuesday, Embarambamba swiftly respond to the criticism, saying that people who are condemning him do not understand the context of the song.
The electric performer admitted that he was performing at a party that took place in one of the clubs along Thika Road.
“Wakenya wamenihukumu, wakenya wamenitusi, mafans wangu wamekasirika wengine wakisema eti mimi sijaokoka. Lakini wakenya wenzangu, hii video, kabla hujacommend, angalia statement yake kwanza (Kenyans have criticised me, they have insulted me and my fans are mad at me, some saying that I am not a Christian. But my fellow Kenyans, before you commend, look at the statement of the song),” Embarambamba said.
Embarambabmba has defended himself after Kenyans on social media cast doubt on his status as a born-again Christian. He claims the song warns against sexual immorality and therefore his performance is in tandem with the message.

He added the song itself which he was performing was condemning the immorality that people have been doing and forgetting their God.
“Jesus came into this world for the sake of sinners…when Jesus was in this world, He sat with the sinners. The reason was that the sinners would be born again and know God,” he said.
He concluded that; “You cannot say that Embarambamba should not attend political events or clubs because they are earthly things. God brought us into this world.”
According to him, some people are spreading rumours that he is dead, which has caused pain to his family, yet he is much alive.
Among those who led the onslaught on the singer include Kenya Film and Classification Board CEO Ezekiel Mutua and television host Lofty Matambo.
While condemning him, Mutua said that Embarambamba’s behavior was gross and that he had crossed the line.
