Bahati has gone from breing a gospel artist to being a borderline secular artist to making songs with gengetone artists and now he has released a disstrack. If this isn’t a full evolution, then I don’t know what is.
Thing is however, that while for a lot of people this might be an off-putting development for a lot of his fans, I like what we are seeing because this shows just how versatile he actually is.
Also, Bahati has gotten to a point where he realizes that he cannot keep crying and being called “Mtoto was Diana” and he needs to earn his peers’respect so he has unleashed an interesting series of missives aimed at Kenyan celebs.
While it is no How to Rob by 50 Cent, it is still a decent attempt to let his fandom and music lovers in general know that he is versatile. Now here is where we look at the cons of everything related to this disstrack:
Bahati is not going to get a response from any of the artists mentioned because I will bet the entire house that he called them all and gave each one a heads-up as to what he planned to do. So this is not really about talking shots at anyone but a publicity stunt.
The “beef” is dead in the water where it never left like so many brave soldiers who stormed the beaches of Normandy. Why would Khaligraph Jones respond o these few jabs? Interesting they may but he was probably texted by Bahati about what he was going to do.
And while I enjoyed hearing Bahati rap in this new song, I couldn’t help but go back to the places where my memories have stored images of him doing some clown
bullshit like jumping on the president’s chair or crying about his wife.
So all that bravado doing battle rap was for naught. But all in all, alls well that ends well.
