When Bahati went all the way to Taita to pick Peter Blessing to sign him as an artistes under EMB, his mother gave him her blessings.
Today, Peter Blessing’s mother is in tears. All she wants is her son back home and out of prison, where Bahati has him held for allegedly stealing from EMB studios.
In a call interview with Mpasho, Peter Blessing’s mother exposed the hardships the 20-year-old has been going through in the hands of the gospel artiste. On top of signing him, he also promised to help educate, something he never did.
‘ MY SON DOES NOT OWE BAHATI 2 MILLION. THEY ARE ONLY TAKING ADVANTAGE BECAUSE THEY FEEL HE IS POOR AND HAS NOWHERE ELSE TO GO.
IN-FACT THEY ARE THE ONES WHO HAVE BEEN ENRICHED BY PETER THROUGH HIS MUSIC.’
Blessing’s mum said that despite her son performing on New Years Eve, he was never paid
‘ON 31ST MY SON PERFORMED AND HE WAS TO BE PAID 50,000 BUT HE WAS NOT PAID DESPITE PERFORMING.
BUT SOME OF THE OTHER ARTISTS WHO PERFORMED WERE PAID SOME CASH (NOT SURE OF THE AMOUNT)
I CAN ONLY PLEAD WITH HIM TO PLEASE BRING BACK OUR SON THE SAME WAY HE PICKED HIM.’
Asked if she knew the reason why the EMB CEO had her son arrested, she said
‘APPARENTLY, BAHATI SAID HE HEARD THAT PETER WAS TALKING ABOUT EXITING EMB.
MY QUESTION IS IF INDEED HE HEARD THAT, WHY DID HE NOT SIT HIM DOWN AND ASK HIM WHY HE WANTED TO LEAVE?
PEOPLE WILL EVEN WONDER WHY BAHATI IS DOING THIS’
The mistake he did is getting my son arrested he would rather have brought him home.
‘THERE IS A GUY CALLED WEEZDOM WHOM BAHATI LISTENS TO TOO MUCH
WHEN BAHATI PROMISED TO HELP MY SON, I HANDED HIM TO THEM. BUT NOW I DO NOT KNOW WHAT EXACTLY IS HAPPENING.
THEY WOULD HAVE CALLED AND TOLD ME WHAT HAPPENED.’
Producer Paulo, who was arrested alongside Peter Blessings, was released but the young artiste is still a guest of the state. All it took was an apology to Bahati for a mistake he claimed he did not commit.
Seems like Peter Blessing is still confused and wondering what he needs to be sorry for. We reached out to Bahati for a comment but he did not pick up our call.
