Gospel star Bahati seems to be having a rather bad week.
A few days after Mr. Seed announced he has ditched EMB records, a music promoter has exposed Bahati as a con.
Clay Onyango says he worked with Bahati to set up EMB records but Bahti ditched him upon the studio’s completion.
“Hi guys , my name is Clay Onyango a Music promoter in Sweden. I also have a story about Bahati that l want to share. Some 2 years ago we agreed in going into partnership between my label World Music Promoters and EMB , so we agreed to build a Studio in Membley in a mansion he got. I paid the deposit and l started investing money in building the studio. When the studio was complete Bahati moved in and started Working while also recording some artists.” He said
Clay also narrated how Bahti called him and asked him to approximate his investment saying he would pay him back.
“So one day he calls Me and he is like ,l understand u Are going around telling people that This studio is yours, l Dont think l wonna Work With you. Calculate how much money u have invested and send Me your account Nbr. I did that and it has been one year now. The amount is almost 500 K and Bahati does not respond to my calls.” He added
The singer is yet to respond to the allegations, however this is not the first time Bahati is being accused of fraud by a business-man.
In 2018, Benson Thuranira reported that he had been defrauded Ksh. 200,000 by Kevin Bahati Kioko under false pretenses that he would get premises under which they would both operate a business.
