After authorities raided her brothel on September 18, singer Merceline Atieno, aka Mercy Atis, who rose to fame after her song “I Don’t Give a Damn” went popular on social media in 2020, emerged naked.
Following a public alert, Kenyan police officers and the Kajiado County Liquor Licensing Board conducted a raid on the brothel, which was originally a restaurant.
It was gathered that tens of naked women were found entertaining revellers while smoking bhang (an edible preparation made from the leaves of the cannabis plant) . Others engaged in group orgies.
After being told she was operating an illegal facility, Atis insulted the police officers, stripped naked and dared them to kill her.
The facility was shut down and Mercy Atis was subsequently arrested. She is currently being held at Kitengela police station.
Chairman of the Liquor Licensing Board Jonah Marapash who ordered the immediate closure of the bar, said;
“The orgy scenes we have witnessed in this club spell doom to our children. We thank members of the public for giving vital information about what has been going on in this club. We are on high alert to tame the operations of nightclubs and bars. We cannot allow open immorality in the name of business and we are going to close all strippers’ joints, revoke their licenses, and blacklist their owners.”
