Si ni kubaya huku! After deleting his pictures on instagram, Bahati is back with a bang and his first post is taking the internet by storm! Mtoto Wa Mama went on social media accusing gospel artists of not representing Christ in their music, suggesting that secular artistes who are singing gospel music should instead be nominated for this year’s Groove awards. Among the artists he mentioned were Collo, Nyashinski who has done the song Mungu Pekee and Sauti Sol who are the hit makers of Kuliko Jana.
Well, Sauti Sol’s Bien has not taken this lightly as he went ahead to reply to Bahati’s message. In an Exclusive interview with Kiss, Bien has made it clear that Sauti Sol wouldn’t mind accepting a Groove award if they were to be nominated. Bien also pointed out that there are other gospel acts who are doing good in the industry notably among them Daddy Owen, L Jay Masai and Pitson.
Well, it seems as if Bahati could be doing a publicity stunt as there are rumors that he is about to do a collabo with Nigeria’s Chosen Generation hitmaker, Sinach. 9 months ago, Bahati also attempted to create controversy, where he accused Willy Paul and L J Masai of plotting to finish him in another publicity stunt which saw him release the popular Itakua Sawa song.
Here is what Sauti Sol’s Bien wrote after Bahati’s rant;
Bahati go and write songs or rather get good songwriters to work with. DO NOT do music targeting awards. Awards are a by-product of quality. Use this energy to better your musicianship. Also who told you to speak on behalf of Gospel musicians! There are plenty of Gospel artists who are doing God’s work with anointing as they should. So stop roping an entire industry into your publicity stunts. It just makes Kenyan musicians in general look bad. Sautisol didn’t sing Kuliko Jana targeting any award. Music from the heart goes to the heart. As musicians our legacy is cast on song not hype. I mean this with love and respect.
