Gospel sensation Bahati has previously kept it under the carpet when it came to his love-life but if seems he finally let the cat out of the bag. During his birthday, Bahati’s instagram account had an appearance whose name was Diana Marua by his side.

Well, if you’re a keen follower of the Kenyan music industry, especially gospel, then you probably know that there’s been some long term feud between gospel musicians Bahati and Willy Paul. And now, things are headed down south.
Almost a week after Willy Paul released his collabo with Size 8, there has been much talk about the ‘un-gospelness’ of the song ‘Tiga wana’. Popular blogger Cyprian Nyakundi bashed the two and Size 8’s husband. DJ Mo.
Bahati too has jumped into the bandwagon and taken to his instagram account to condemn his fellow gospel artistes. In a long instagram post (Click here to see it), the Barua singer posted photos of Nyashinsky, Collo and Sauti Sol, captioning that those are the names he expected in the next groove awards.
“Our Focus has been making Hit songs, Scandals & Headlines and we are not Proud of Our Lord God & Savior JESUS CHRIST,” he wrote.
Bahati said that he personally feels that the last gospel song he did was Barua. What raised eyebrows however was the timeliness of the post and the fact that he deleted every other post he had made before.
This however did not go well with some artistes. Former gospel group MOG’s Boss said it was not okay to judge the whole music industry by using one song, whereas there are many musicians working as required.
“I call upon those whom in their spirit feel like they’ve not been singing honest gospel songs to either withdraw or go back to the source (Jesus) to get advice on the way forward,” he wrote (click here to read the whole post).
Groove Male artiste of the year 2016 was also not okay with Bahati’s post and he replied to Boss saying, “NONSENSE No one appointed @bahatikenya as the spokesman for the gospel industry. He should deal with his issues rather than drag the entire ministry into the mud”.
Well, more pop-corns as we wait for what’s unraveling. Popcorn please!
Gospel music superstar, Bahati, is a deeply troubled man. In recent weeks, he has been at the cross hairs of various attacks leveled at him. Things got ugly last week when Willy Paul tore into him rather badly. Now, the “Barua” hit maker is hinting that things are actually much worse that peeps in these rough social media streets thought…
In a recent interview, the Gospel megastar revealed that the recent attacks were no coincidence, but rather a meticulous plan to finish him off. By ‘finish him off’ we mean the way in the movies a Mafia done means it. As in to off him. To eliminate him. To put him down. To kill him.
In the Pulse Magazine interview, Bahati opened his heart about the situation, which has even resulted in him going off social media entirely;
I have decided to quit gospel music for now. I have decided to follow my heart. Gospel artistes, my very brothers, have been meeting secretly and plotting my downfall. I have so much pain in my heart. It is not worth being in the gospel industry now
Recent reports in the Kenyan social media, which seems to get its fuel from concentrated Haterade, seem to indicate that other gospel musicians have ganged up against Bahati. Damn Pharasees!
Bahati was not through with his interview. He then went on to drop the bomb about the threats against his life:
At this rate, this hate will even get me killed. If they can even go to an extent of looking for my relatives and other people close to me to bribe them and have them cook lies about me, then aren’t they ready to do anything to finish me?
We ask all fans of Kenyan music, and especially those of Bahati to pray for him during this trying period.
