Tate Buti album title causes uproar

By Jeoffrey Mukubi

Twitter has been on a row for the past 24 hours as fans and tweebs alike are debating whether veteran musician and well known businessman Tate Buti is or has been promoting rape culture in Namibia through his witty and sometimes sexual music.

This came after he released an album cover for his upcoming album titled ‘Etunhu’. In an interview with a local radio station yesterday Tate Buti explains that ‘Etunhu’ translated how he interprets it, is a speed bump.

However many people did not agree to this some saying that he is deliberately promoting GBV, one person writing “The quicker you realize that we don’t care about you cancelling Tate Buti the better. Just admit that he enables rape culture and keep it moving, Ano what’s with the denial ouens,”

Another tweeting “Tate Buti has so many lyrics which are rapey…. He has been problematic for years now….He is very sexist and toxic…. I need y’all to reflect and introspect and tell me why y’all enjoy his music,”

Most people however did come to his defense some saying that one just should not listen to him if he offensive, comparing him to other artist that also seem to embrace sexual content like Megan the Stallion and Cardi B, specifically the WAP song.


One person tweeting “Waiting for people who worship WAP and call it revolutionary to attack TATE BUTI because of ETUNHU, they will label him with those famous words, you know them “misogyny, Patriarchal, toxic,”
And another defending the WAP song tweeting “One thing about men, they hate the idea of liberated women. Now when we talk about Tate Buti being sexist and promoting rape culture in his music (which is not a secret), they bring up WAP.

WAP is a song for sexually liberated women How is sexual liberation an equivalent to rape,”


Although there is uproar about the soon to be dropped album, it is quite obvious that the album is clearly promoting itself.
