There has been a mass online outburst in the recent past over a “Gospel hit song” that has been described by many as a big joke.
The outrage erupted immediately after Gospel music bigwigs, Size 8 and Willy Paul dropped their latest jam “Tiga Wana”. As fate would have it, Kenyans were not happy with the song and a heated debate and trolls on the two and the whole Kenyan gospel fraternity emerged.
Truth be told, our Gospel Ministry is corrupt. Look at Bahati, Willy Paul and these other upcoming artistes.
Apparently one of the troll’s culprit, Bahati, finally spoke out on the matter. He first deleted all photos from his Instagram handle before writing a lengthy post crucifying his fellow artiste for coming together in “KUPAKA JINA YA YESU MATOPE”.
In his long Facebook post, Mtoto Wa Mama” further went ahead and endorsed secular artistes Sauti Sol, Collo and Nyashinski might be the only 2016/17 Groove Male Artistes of the year nominees after Willy Paul and himself missed this year’s awards thanks to endless controversies.
All said, we all know where Bahati was striking at. This is not the first time Bahati has played clean to tarnish other people’s image. You should understand why he dropped this now….smart guy knew that WILLY PAUL was on the receiving end for “Tiga Wana” and timely dropped his “two side of the coins opinion” to worsen matters.
Well kudos for the self crucifixion but we all know where this was headed to. It is a shame this doesn’t offer any good solution. Movie for the festive season just hit our Cinemas. Be pretty sure this post from Bahati will attract replies and besides suffering “whack” music ……the ministry will become a battle field.
Why does the lad keep deleting his Instagram???? Someone should literally “TIGA WANA”.
Shout out to Daddy Owen, Sarah Kiarie, Eunice Njeri, Kambua and other genuine gospel musicians.
Below is the post from Baha;
‘WE ARE SORRY FOR LETTING DOWN THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST‼️ I personally feel & accept that as “BAHATI” I have not Represented Jesus & the Gospel Music as God expects. I know this might not be the best Platform to Speak about this but We all Know that The Public has Lost Trust in Us Gospel Musicians. Can we all agree that The Saints & the Streets don’t See God in Us anymore??? Yes we Can’t Ignore the fact that the Church is Complaining that’s why “NONE” of our Urban Gospel Songs can be used in Praise & Worship Services. I feel Guilty & Sorry for Contributing in Devaluing THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST- God Says if We don’t go back to What He called us to do GOD WILL AS WELL RAISE STONES to Praise Him & in a better way than we Can. YESSSS GOD CAN REPLACE US IN A MINUTE‼️ God has given us Supportive Media Personalities, DJs & Loyal fans but we have let you down. Our Focus has been making Hit songs, Scandals & Headlines and we are not Proud of Our Lord God & Savior JESUS CHRIST. Yes We Forgot the “CALLING” and Ministry… I personally feel my Last Gospel Song was “BARUA” in 2014 nanimechangia Sana kupaka Jina la Yesu Matope… LORD PLEASE FORGIVE ME Some People might see this as Self Crucification but NO!!! God says clearly in 1ST JOHN 1:9…. “if we CONFESS our sins He is faithful & Just to forgive us and Cleanse Us from all Unrighteousness” … God speaks through People; and if the Public & the People of God are not happy::: THEN GOD IS NOT HAPPY‼️ (Listen to what the Spirit Says 2Chronicles 7:14)”
