Machungu nayo! Is Bahati jealous of Willy Paul's new video?
We're not sure what to make of his unexpected decisions.
In a post on Instagram he explains how his Monday morning started on a bad note when he realized that Bahati had deleted all his music videos from his record, EMB’s, Youtube channel.
The two met in Mathare where Weezdom had been camping, waiting to introduce himself to Bahati. Two years later, after Bahati had housed him and mentored him he announced his departure from Bahati’s record label late last year in search of greener pastures. He explained that his move at the time was purely business oriented and that he and Bahati were still very good friends. He said, “We all know I have been signed to EMB records. It was a great blessing to me. However, following the rumors that I have signed out from EMB for beneficial gain, I would like to clarify that yes it is true that I have signed out but it’s not for the given reason but to expound for more and greater opportunities. I don’t have any differences with Bahati. Actually, I respect him and appreciate the opportunity he gave me to release my talent. I think it is time for me to explore outside EMB Records. ”
However, he’s now talking a whole different story.
Conflict of Interest
The rivalry between Bahati and Willy Paul has been a continuous feud over the past few years. Still, nothing as drastic has happened before. According to Weezdom, his featuring in Pozze’s latest video is the cause of his predicament. Weezdom’s music videos were under EMB record’ Youtube page and had collected a sizable amount of views. Now only one remains, his debut song, Faham.
Taking his woes to Instagram he posted the following quoting his latest song with Guardian Angel, Better man. He said, “Good morning Kenyans. Today I speak to you as a better man coz in the past I've been through hardships, poverty and pain. As u all know I was housed by Bahati @Bahatikenya, EMB records to be precise and he taught me so much. The value of life, forgiving, love etc. He is a good man and I give God all the glory for the first day I met him coz he took me in as a brother. We've shared secrets, meals, stages and song ideas. But for a man to grow you need to get out of the house where you were born or bred to go out there and seek a better life and he gave me a life so I wanted to become a better man. So when we parted ways it was all in good faith and I started doing my own projects thanks to Guardian Angel @guardianangelglobal. We have a new song titled "Better Man" which is doing well in different charts here and there. I am friends with everyone in the industry, that is what Bahati taught me, that I should be friends with everyone including Willy Paul @willy.paul.msafi. I don't know about their rivalry but I know that the bible says that we should love one another. Me and Pozze have been friends for a while and Pozze was doing a music video a few days ago and he called me to be his best man. When I posted about Willy Paul a few hours later, since my music videos were on EMB/Bahati's channels, I woke up and found that Bahati had apparently deleted my songs. I am not bitter, I’m just shocked!! That he would stoop so low but since he taught me the art of forgiving I will let it go coz my wealth is not on earth but in heaven. I forgive Bahati as my big brother and my mentor and I know that in heaven we shall not be judged by Youtube views and comments. Amenitoa far was just a video and these are material things. I forgive you Bahati. Now that you have taken the landmark of our respect it is very sad but I am a better man.”
Is it a bad case of jealousy or did Bahati have good reason? Tell us what you think.
