After gospel star Mr Seed announced that he is no longer signed under Bahati’s EMB record label, rumours hit the mill.
There were reports that the exit by Mr seed had a lot to do with an incident that took place on December 31 during Bahati’s New Year’s party.
Mr Seed of course made his resignation letter all rosey and clean.
He said, “After two successful years being signed under EMB records, I have finally decided to go independent and be my own artiste,” he wrote.
“This is for the sole purpose of paving way for other young and coming artistes that Bahati has been taking in that need more the platform and support that EMB have offered to me and can offer. I also in return would like to nurture other upcoming artistes for it has been a dream for too long now to do something about the talented young artists that need that just one push to realize their dream.”
Adding: “Bahati and I still remain brothers and will always wish him the very best in everything he does. If there will be other stories that will rise up, I will address them to everyone coz am already getting words on the streets that are not pleasing to my ear. We start 2019 on a high note.”
Hours later Mr Seed posted a photo of himself and his fiancé, Nimo, with the caption:
“I respect her so much and if av never DISRESPECTED her no one can do that .. Advice: NEVER ALLOW ANYONE FRIENDS OR WHOEVER DISRESPECT YOUR WOMAN KWANZA WHEN SHES CARRYING YOUR BABY SO WRONG!! … @nimo_gachuiri ❤❤.”
Now, it turns out that Mr Seed and Bahati were in the middle of a cat fight involving their baes.
Diana Marua is reported to have demanded that Bahati give her a stand at the Thika Stadium where they were hosting the New Year’s party.
It turns out that already, Mr Seed and Nimo had already set up and made purchases way in advance to also sell wares at the party.
So when Diana demanded to have that space, Nimo and Seed were shown the door. The two later learned that Bahati’s house manager was the one selling wares on the said stand.
A close source to Bahati and Mr Seed whispered to us that there was a showdown to a point where Bahati “used security forces to eject Mr Seed’s girlfriend and her father from the event”.
We called Bahati for a comment but he hung up.
After saying, “Continue following the story.”
We contacted Mr Seed and he laughed, saying, “I can’t comment on that. I don’t want to talk about anything concerning Bahati. I left EMB for growth. I’ve decided to go solo. Not planning to sign with any record label anytime soon.”
Adding, “There’s no blood between us. I have no issue with him, unless he does. He is my brother. I just wish him the best in everything. Right now I just want to focus on myself and music.”
Asked whether it was a publicity stunt, he said: “I’m a very honest and straightforward person. I can’t pull publicity stunts when it comes to work. There are things I can’t joke with.”
Responding to allegations that she and her dad were ejected from Bahati’s event, she said, “Let me not comment about it because that’s something that is private.”
Adding, “We should just dwell on the positive side and not negativity. I have no issue with Bahati and his wife Diana.”
