Firirinda, song released nearly thirty-five years ago by Dick Munyonyi suddenly went viral on Thursday and in the process caught the attention of KFCB Chief Executive Ezekiel Mutua, commonly known on social media circles as Kenya’s moral police, who endorsed it.

Mutua who has been at loggerheads with a section of local artists over “inappropriate” content said the song is fitting for consumption by Kenyans of all ages.

“FIRIRINDA (Free rinda) is the kind of content we want. It’s a nice traditional song based on Kenya’s culture. The song is approved by KFCB for consumption by people of all ages. It depicts the warmth and joy of welcoming visitors (the African way)!” he tweeted.

According to Mutua, the song’s label was derived from “Free Rinda” meaning the dresses put on by women would move freely whenever they hit the floor to dance.
