We all knew Bahati was done with the gospel industry, but we just needed to hear it from the horse's mouth including the reason why.
In an interview with MC Jessy on his new YouTube segment, Jessy Junction, Bahati made it clear for the social media family that minds his business, that leaving the gospel industry doesn't mean his faith and belief in God has been compromised.
"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." Bahati told Jessy
For his peace of mind, leaving the industry was the best desition.
"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."
Bahati added that his audience for his 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."
Don't all these words sound familiar? At least I know Willy Paul shares the same sentiments and that is why he is thriving in his secular career.
