While the rest of the country was preoccupied debating whether reggae should continue or not, one Bahati, the gospel artiste, was busy stopping Gengetone.
Let’s admit it, this music genre will always be associated with the nastiest of the lyrics, and trying to fit the gospel message into the, nevertheless, catchy beats of Gengetone, is an outrageous attempt to remain relevant.
Imagine a gospel track titled ‘Taniua!’
With the backlash the singer attracted after he collaborated with the Boondocks Gang, one would expect him to rethink his musical strategy, but no, it appears he enjoys the negative attention, if his latest jam, alongside the Kansoul, Kererembe, is anything to go by.
From his highly criticized marriage to an older woman, to his reality show, which many love to hate, we understand why Bahati might feel obliged to try and keep up with the industry trends, but there is a thick line between the secular and the gospel worlds.
Bahati, if you are reading this, for the sake of all your fans, kindly pick a struggle!
That way, things will work better, as opposed to fence-sitting and confusing everyone who adores you.
