When you think of Kenya’s gospel scene, one thing comes to mind with such clarity, one would be forgiven for thinking some programming has occurred; sex scandals. And they flow as effusively as God’s grace and Christ’s love -moreso than they do in the secular circles.
Anyway, a popular televangelist by the name of Migwi has blasted two particular gospel artistes, Bahati and Ringtone whom he has used as an example of the problems within the gospel industry. This is what he had to say:
AKINA BAHATI, RINGTONE… ARE NOT GOSPEL ARTISTES. THEY ARE ONLY USING JESUS’ NAME TO MAKE MONEY. BAHATI AMEPOTELEA KATIKATI [HE’S LOST AND HAS NO STAND] BECAUSE HE’S SUFFERING FROM CELEBRITY SYNDROME.
YOU CAN’T BE SINGING ABOUT JESUS AND BRING SKIMPILY DRESSED WOMEN IN YOUR MUSIC VIDEO. KWANI HUYO MSICHANA NI YESU? [IS THAT SKIMPILY DRESSED WOMAN JESUS CHRIST?] IF THESE ARTISTES DON’T HAVE A MENTOR THEY WON’T GO FAR.
