EXCLUSIVE: Rapper Drew Wizzy defends raunchy video which has shocked Kenyan audience
Rapper Emmanuel Andrew aka Drew Wizzy has set tongues wagging with the release of an explicit music video which is arguably the raunchiest ever produced by a Kenyan artiste.
The video, which has since gone viral on social media, captures a bare-chested Drew Wizzy surrounded by semi nude women wearing nothing but bras and thongs.
In the song, which goes by an equally obscene title, the girls are seen grinding their behind on the rapper while also shaking their bums in a suggestive manner.
Speaking exclusively to Nairobi News, the 22-year-old said that he was shocked at how people have reacted to his song.
The rapper says he began his journey in music when he was just in class two but only started serious recording of his music in 2011.
“Some people have said that it is a publicity stunt, but it isn’t. The song is an expression of myself,” says Drew Wizzy.
On why he choose such a controversial production, he simply says:
“Because it (the subject and title of the song) is what I love most. And as an artiste I knew I had to do a song about it. I am just expressing myself. It’s all about being real.”
He says he spent a total of Sh30,000 for the recording and video shoot of the song.
The song has been greeted with mixed reactions from the online community with many of the opinion that the rapper overstepped the boundaries with the explicit video.
However, some have argued that he was just following in the footsteps of international artistes who have been feeding their fans with similar content.
“We have international rappers and Jamaican dance hall singers with music that similarly carry explicit content but you never hear as much noise being made about them,” said Drew Wizzy.
So does he have a girlfriend?
“Yes, I do have a girlfriend and I love her so much. I will be releasing a new song before the end of the month so my fans should watch out for it.”
