Bahati has officially exited the world of gospel music after the gospel industry proved too toxic for him to bear.
Breaking the news during a recent interview, the father of 4 clarified he sings for God and not for man and he is therefore not here to meet anyone´s standards.
Up and close on Jessy Junction, Bahati stated that leaving gospel music did not mean his faith and belief in God had withered, actually the two have since bonded the more.
The Gospel is Christ, I have Christ in my heart and I believe in God and he is the reason I’m at the top. I cannot leave Christ but the gospel industry is rotten.
Articulating he saw it best to exit where he was not welcomed, but his faith remains.
I was fought a lot in the gospel industry so when I do a gospel song, I do it for God, not for the people. I just separated myself from the Gospel industry for a while, but I’m in Christ and the Lord is my personal savior.
According to the music star, his audience for his so-called secular music is just not people in the secular world but the very same church members who critic him for his kind of music.
I think right now Wanani is the most played song in the country, and it’s because ina-requestiwa both na watu wako secular na watu wako church because I’m still a son of Christ.
Life with Diana Marua
Taking us back to their dating days, the two revealed they went out on several occasions but Diana, having this mentality of not dating men younger than her, took Bahati as her younger brother.
At the time, Diana was a party girl while Bahati was a born again Christian so every time after their date, the singer would say a prayer for her.
When I met him, I was actually the girl of the world, I was making it happen, I was making it rain.
Eventually, Diana’s eyes were opened, she noticed Bahati was exceptional and just wanted someone who would lover her and show her off to the world.
After spending time together, it got to a point I felt he is different, he loves God and he doesn’t have life pressures.
The rest…was history.
