Kenyan mosque leaders ‘write to Jay-Z’s designer’

Leaders of a mosque in Kenya have complained to a US-based designer whose T-shirt worn by musician Jay-Z depicts their holy building, the Daily Nation newspaper reports.

“You cannot associate a religious minaret with worldly things. You print a T-shirt with a logo that might end up in clubs and bars,” said one of the leaders of Riyadha mosque in the city of Lamu.

The leaders said that while they appreciated designer Zeddie Lukoye’s recognition of their city, they would prefer him to use non-religious historical sites instead.
