Bahati’s Gospel Exodus
Bahati ditched the gospel industry in 2020 citing hatred notably from artist’s he had helped to establish themselves.
“Hate is not bad.But what is the need of receiving hate from artists that I’m helping from scratch? When i started to support them no one cared but once they get famous, they create false stories to make them trend” partly stated Bahati then
This led him to shutting off his record label,EMB Records(Eastlands Most Beloved Record) which then boasted of a number of signees namely Danny Gift,Mr. Seed,Weezdom, David Wonder, Rebecca Soki and Peter Blessing.
He went full blast in the secular world dropping songs like Kiss,Abebo,Taniua and Mambo Ya Mwesh among others.
On the other hand, Dk Kwenye Beat took a backseat from the gospel industry after being involved in a sex scandal pitying a Nakuru woman and fellow gospel star, Hopekid.
According to the woman,she was lured from Nakuru to Nairobi before the two men of God forced themselves on her infecting her with a sexually transmitted disease,Herpes.
While winding up this publication,the new song dubbed ‘fanya mambo’ is finally out and is posted on Bahati’s YouTube channel.
