The veteran gospel singer Jimmy Gait is the latest victim of a backlash from unforgiving Kenyans on Twitter, famously abbreviated as KOT, after he released a cover of singer Adele’s hit single Hello.
The single which has over 778 million views on You Tube in less than two months since it was first released has attracted many, with Kenyan singers doing remixes of the song.
It all started with songstress Dela whose Hello cover greatly excited many. She was lauded for hitting the nail on the head with the remix; something that might have prompted other artists like Jimmy Gait to follow suit by trying their luck.
