The CitizenGO campaigns Director for Africa, Ann Kioko, argues that the show parades “ tens of indecently dressed youth who dance and twerk live on television. The almost naked youth dance in sexually provocative styles while the disc jokey makes sure to spin the dirtiest of the songs.” and denounces that the show host Willis Raburu has lent “deaf ears” to calls by parents to change the content of the show and make it more palatable. The TV station management explained to Kioko they’re willing to talk things over and si down to help them “make the show better".

The international platform CitizenGO has put in motion an online campaign called “CITIZEN TV: Cancel pornographic 10 over 10 TV show”.
