Energy Mutodi has put his music career on hold following his recent appointment as the deputy minister of Information Publicity and Broadcasting Services. Mutodi described his new role as “demanding and challenging” hence dedicating the next five years or so into it.
My new job is challenging and demanding, hence the decision to put my music career on hold. I cannot be seen commenting on social issues while I am the minister. It will be a clash of interests.I am now focussing on policy formulation and implementation.
Mutodi said he will remain relevant and useful to fellow musicians despite him being in government.
I will continue contributing to the music industry maybe through producing jingles, if it is necessary.
Apart from that, I will continue assisting the music industry through formulating policies bent on growing the industry
