Gospel singer Bahati will be hosting a thanksgiving event on June 28 at KICC.
The Barua singer says the invite-only event will be an appreciation for all industry players like journalists, event organisers and corporate sponsors who have played a role in his music career.
“I want to spread my wings out of Kenya and just before I take my music international, I want to thank the people who have brought me this far. It will also coincide with the launch of my new video, In Love, which I shot in South Africa,” Bahati told Heads Up.
As the new season of continental music reality TV show Coke Studio kicks off, award-winning gospel star Bahati makes history by becoming the first gospel artiste to be profiled among other Africa greats.
The singer, who missed this year’s Groove Awards seems to be reclaiming his glory.
“I am greatly overwhelmed. This is a beautiful thing. As I go in there, I will be giving it my best shot. Africa better get ready,” Bahati told Pulse after receiving the news.
The humble but versatile young celebrity will be recording alongside celebrated Nigerian artiste Kiss Daniel during the shoot slotted for next week.
Only the crème de la crème in continental showbiz make it to Coke Studio Africa.
Bahati who emerged among the top four highest earners in the recently released Skiza Tunes payments missed on the Groove awards presumably due to his differences with his fellow gospel artiste Willy Paul; a matter that is perceived to have created a rift in the local gospel industry.
A while ago we witnessed a turn of events for two gospel bigwigs Bahati and Willy Paul who were spotted having lunch together at Oak Place.
According to a close source the two were seemingly having fun after Bahati invited Willy Paul Msafi over for lunch alongside his kids.
To prove their affair or re-union excited Bahati took the first initiative to post on his Facebook wall saying: “My kids & I invited @willypaulmsafi for lunch…..” and then a minute later Willy Paul did the same adding: “Having lunch with my brother @bahatikenya and his kids, I swear nimeshiba ata siezi amka”
Following the news of their ‘re-union’ many of their loyal fans are said to be excited terming it the beginning of bigger things to come after years of feuds.
