His difficult childhood is probably one of the reasons why people find him likable and adorable because it shaped him into a humble man full of respect for God and man.

His music came as a breath of fresh air and when he released ‘Mama’ a tribute to his late mum and all mums around, Kenyans could not handle the level of emotions he’d exposed them to.

His life has been a testament that you do not have to be your unfortunate circumstance, that you can work hard, make it in life and give back to society.

Kevin Bahati, one of Kenya’s youngest gospel musicians.

His mum died when he was only 7-year-old and his father was a no-show before he too passed on.

Bahati grew up in a children’s 0fgjhs630quhiinte-17ae6863me in a slum but his music gave him a chance at a new life.

He has adopted three children from a home. He is educating them and giving them a life most accomplished, older men could only dream of for their children.

Bahati shares the only picture of his late mother and it's heart-wrenching

For all these things, he has this one woman to thank for giving him a chance at life, teaching him to be the best that he can be and how to show unwarranted kindness to those around him.

Meet Bahati’s late mum in the picture below, and I dare you not to shed a tear at the accompanying caption:

Check out the honor Bahati got while he performed at the Jubilee Party grand launch on September 10, 2016. Kenyans LOVED him.
