“First male musician in Kenya to surpass the 3 Million followers mark on Instagram 🔥🔥🔥 Thank you to all of you who have been consistently showing me love in my music journey... I love you too 💙💙💙” wrote Bahati.

In this generation Instagram numbers is something to be proud of, as people with huge numbers are used to influence and advertise products by companies. Advertisers who want their products and services to reach as many people as it is possible, will always approach people with a huge following and that translates into money.
