Popular gospel singer Kevin Bahati has with a dose of sarcasm asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to honour a promise he made to him some years ago.
The 26-year-old star claimed that the President had pledged to support his music.
Posting on Instagram, the singing sensation said that President Kenyatta made a sweet promise, which, some years later, is still unfulfilled.
“Let me flashback to when the President said he would hold my hand until until I succeed in my music career. I’m still waiting,” he wrote.
A section of Bahati’s fans felt that the successful musician was probably kidding, considering that he has made good progress in the gospel music industry.
Others were of the opinion that the father of four could be seriously asking for help for his music to move a step further.
In an interview with K24 TV, the dynamic artiste revealed that he charges a minimum of Ksh700,000 for any performance.
He is also a brand ambassador of many companies, which use his name and huge online following to grow their businesses.
Unseating The President
The energetic entertainer made headlines in 2016, when he pulled the President from his official seat at a lively political function in Kasarani, Nairobi.
After literally unseating the Head of State, Bahati sat on the presidential throne and sang his signature song, Mama, to First Lady Margaret Kenyatta.
The singer would later be invited to State House, but the details of the meeting still remain scanty today.
Speaking to Citizen TV, then, the gospel star declined to disclose the agenda of the meeting and only said that the President’s handlers at State House had given him some advice.
