The development saw fans jamming the comment section urging him to stop abusing the Muslim’s worship outfit in his theatrics.

“Umevaa kanzu ya kiislamu afu unasmoke! 🙄Astaghfirullah,” fired another user.
However, not all saw offense with Bahati’s behaviour and cheered him one.
“Kwani mtu haezi piga moshi yake safi na bado ampende Mungu… Mnajifanya na wengine wenu ni mapoko 😂” inked the supporter.
