Gospel singer Kevin Bahati has come under attack after criticizing some secular musicians for ‘invading their territory’
In an Instagram post, the “Barua” singer expressed his dissatisfaction with local gospel musician while taking a swipe at the likes of Sauti Sol, Collo and Nyashinski whose songs have been receiving massive airplay on local stations.
Bahati said gospel musicians have not been representing Jesus as God mandated them. He also said that the situation is so bad to an extent that the public has lost trust in them.
He shot himself on the foot admitting that he has also contributed in “devaluing the gospel of Christ” with his song “Mama”.
Mtoto wa Mama as he is popularly known called on his fellow gospel musicians to change their ways or else “God would replace them in a minute”.
Bahati concluded his post saying God had given them supportive media personalities, DJs and fans but they have continued to let them down with ungodly songs and scandals.
Here’s his post.
WE ARE SORRY FOR LETTING DOWN THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST‼️ I personally feel & accept that as “BAHATI” I have not Represented Jesus & the Gospel Music as God expects. I know this might not be the best Platform to Speak about this but We all Know that The Public has Lost Trust in Us Gospel Musicians. Can we all agree that The Saints & the Streets don’t See God in Us anymore??? Yes we Can’t Ignore the fact that the Church is Complaining that’s why “NONE” of our Urban Gospel Songs can be used in Praise & Worship Services. I feel Guilty & Sorry for Contributing in Devaluing THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST- God Says if We don’t go back to What He called us to do GOD WILL AS WELL RAISE STONES to Praise Him & in a better way than we Can. YESSSS GOD CAN REPLACE US IN A MINUTE‼️ God has given us Supportive Media Personalities, DJs & Loyal fans but we have let you down. Our Focus has been making Hit songs, Scandals & Headlines and we are not Proud of Our Lord God & Savior JESUS CHRIST. Yes We Forgot the “CALLING” and Ministry… I personally feel my Last Gospel Song was “BARUA” in 2014 nanimechangia Sana kupaka Jina la Yesu Matope… LORD PLEASE FORGIVE ME 🙏 Some People might see this as Self Crucification but NO!!! God says clearly in 1ST JOHN 1:9…. “if we CONFESS our sins He is faithful & Just to forgive us and Cleanse Us from all Unrighteousness” … God speaks through People; and if the Public & the People of God are not happy::: THEN GOD IS NOT HAPPY‼️ (Listen to what the Spirit Says 2Chronicles 7:14)
