“Ni mtu mbaya." Bahati accused of swindling Gospel legend Jemimah Thiong’o

Last year, Bahati decide to abandon his old unchristian ways for the straight and narrow path.


To mark his new beginning he decided to team up with legendary gospel singer Jemimah Thiong’o.

“As I start my New Musical Season... LORD RECEIVE THIS...KWA MOYO WANGU with Mum Jemimah Thiong'o. ” He wrote.

However, it wasn’t easy for him as Jemimah Thiong’o a very spiritual Gospel singer was hesitant to collaborate with Bahati as he was not very spiritual and seemed more interested in the fast life rather than Christian worship. But she finally agreed to it and they released the song to rave reveiwes.

Well, news reaching us is that Bahati was very flaky when it came to paying up for the collaboration.

Brian Mutenyo, Jemimah’s Operations Manager told Word Is “Anyone who has ever worked with Bahati can always agree with me ni mtu mbaya (he is a bad person).” Before calling Bahati a ‘pretender’ who puts up an elaborate facade to trick the public into thinking that he is a good gospel artiste.

He revealed that after he struggled to get Jemimah for a Bahati collabo, Bahati played them.

“After the song release, we have never heard from Bahati again. He never calls, and Jemimah has never even received a coin — for royalties — from Bahati. If Bahati has ever paid Jemimah, let him come to the media and defend himself.” Brian revealed.

However Bahati’s manager denied that Bahati ignored Jemimah after the release before revealing that there was no contract signed between the singer and Jemimah  Thiong'o.

“There is nowhere we have signed any contract with regard to the song. As for the split sheet, we are still working on that.” he said.
