Gait’s controversy with the Kenyan public took another twist after he publicly cried on national TV after he was overcome with emotions on the way the public has been treating him.

Speaking during NTV’s The Trend, Gait said he was heartbroken and felt pained after he was mistaken for his brand of music which he said was about real life about being a real Christian which he portrayed.

“I sing about how a real Christian should portrays his or herself and how to respond to situations. That’s what I try to bring out to my songs,” an emotional Gait told The Trend’s Anita Nderu.

However, he said that he was mistaken by majority of Kenyans.

“I was waking up in the morning and trending like I have never seen before. I was going through my social media timeline and was like Jesus! What is all these!” Gait said.

Gait said that he had sang for more than nine years and had done many good songs for people and he felt saddened on how people forgot about all that.

"People are insulting me and saying all sorts of all things....It is difficult for me...I am human.. I have emotions...and feelings...," Gait said.

The gospel singer said he had worked very hard for the music industry and felt turned down by Kenyans.

"I wake up every day to give it my all and Kenyans decide to just insult me and forget about all the good music i have done," a tearful Gait said.

Gait has in the recent past come under harsh criticism from Kenyans for his tracks such as 'Yesu Ndio Sponsor' and his rendition of 'Hello' cover done by international artist Adelle and has been consistently trolled by Kenyans for his hits.
