Kenyan gospel singer William Getumbe’s controversial song has sparked widespread condemnation on social media, with many users expressing disapproval and urging him to cease playing with religious sentiments.
The song, released on YouTube on February 13, has sparked discussions and reshared clips, with some users feeling Getumbe has crossed a line.
A user, mupenziallen808, expressed grave concern, stating, “May you face God himself…and may God teach you a lesson that he is not a man that you should play with his name the way you want.”
@mupenziallen808 May you face God himself…and may God teach you a lesson that he is not a man that you should play with his name the way you want, His word says you do all of those things and I remain quiet and you think I am like you. You are going to face God himself….if is this you can teach your sons and daughters about our Jesu Christ …you deserve kibogo yamungu.

William Getumbe, aside from his controversial song, is known in musical circles as a worship leader, songwriter, composer, Gospel activist, actor, and producer.
He is the manager and proprietor of Billgets Records, boasting a portfolio of over 38 songs.
This recent controversy is not the first time William Getumbe has found himself at the center of public scrutiny.
In 2022, he sparked a commotion in Eldoret when he took to the streets wearing diapers as part of an awareness campaign on cancer, Fistula, and lifestyle diseases.
Getumbe, who suffers from male fistula complications, aimed to raise awareness about these health issues, albeit in a controversial manner.
The sight of Getumbe donning a Father’s Christmas cap and advocating at Eldoret West open-air market left many bewildered and divided, highlighting his penchant for unconventional methods of communication.
