Celebrated Kenyan musician Bahati has finally addressed claims that he has ditched gospel music for secular.
In an exclusive interview with comedian MC Jessy on his Jessy Junction show, Bahati noted that he has separated himself from the gospel industry, but is a strong believer in Christ, and will never leave Him.
“…The gospel is Christ. I have Christ in my heart and I believe in God and God is the reason why I am at the top so I cannot leave Christ.
“Kabla niandike Wanani and Missing You nliconsult God sana. I was fought a lot in the gospel industry and I knew I was not doing gospel for the people. So, when I’m doing a gospel song I’ll do it for God, not for the industry. I just separated myself from the gospel industry for a while but I am in Christ and the Lord is my personal Saviour,” he said.
The speculations started last month when Bahati dropped a love song dubbed ‘Wanani’.
He, however, dismissed the claims stating that he has a lot of fans who have different needs.
According to him, some of his fans listen to his music for spiritual nourishment, while others listen to his tracks hoping to get encouragement especially in matters love.
“Kwa wimbo wangu mpya ‘Wanani’ I just wanted to do something tofauti kiasi, sababu nina mafans tofauti tofauti. Kuna mafans ambao nawafeed kiroho na kuna mafans ambao pia wanafaa kuwa encouraged in terms of love issues, sababu mapenzi ni maisha yetu ya kila siku. So I just did something unique,” he said.
