Mathare MP candidate Bahati has opened up about the difficulties he encountered when he first started dating Diana Marua.

The troubled Mathare MP candidate said Diana Marua abandoned him three times in one year while speaking on Mseto East Africa.

"The first year she moved out when we didn't agree-which was the hardest. You had to approach her at her house, so you had to start from scratch. She left the relationship two or three times, therefore it takes time to stabilize one," according to Bahati.


The musician claimed that Diana's biggest complaint was that he didn't spend enough time with their family. It wasn't about cheating on her, he said.

"I had a hard time juggling my music career and my family. She was also a new mother. One of my phones doesn't even have a password, and she knows the password for the other," he claimed, adding that she has never caught him cheating.

Bahati also discussed Diana's rap career, claiming that he was as astounded to learn of it from her.


"She is a quick learner, but I never imagined she'd want to visit the studio one day. I admired her poise and fluidity," he stated.

Bahati also thanked Marua for helping him as he entered politics.

“She is very supportive to me, to my family and she is the best mum my kids would ever ask for. She is already thinking of ways."

This week Bahati has been in the news after Jubilee party and Azimio La Umoja Coalition rescinded his Mathare MP bid in favour of Anthony Aluoch who is vying on an ODM ticket.

Jubilee Party Chairman (Nairobi branch) Gitonga Ndegwa said that the Jubilee party had communicated to Bahati and that his campaign had come to an immediate end. 

According to Gitonga, Jubilee, Wiper, and ODM parties had united to rally behind Anthony Oluoch in Mathare as one way of solidifying Azimio la Umoja's victory in the constituency.

Bahati for his part has maintained that he is still in the running.
