Award-winning Gospel singer Bahati whose real name is Kevin Kioko took to his social media to announce the release of his upcoming album ‘Love like this.’
In an Instagram post, the Mama hitmaker shared a short video of him smoking while seating next to his wife Diana, one that evoked varying opinions from his fans and followers.
This comes days after the singer took a social media break to reflect on his life.
Bahati has stated that one of the songs will be released on Tuesday, June 8 noting that its content is not suitable for kids under the age of 18 years.
“I have decided not to wait for the official release date. So, tomorrow at 10 am, I will release the first song just to show you why this is the best album ever. Not suitable for kids under the age of 18,” he wrote.
As previously reported by Mtaa Buzz, Kevin Kioko better known as Bahati had announced his exit from the gospel music industry.
Speaking during an interview with Churchill Raw host MC Jessy, the reality TV star explained that he had to disentangle from the industry after years of antagonism.
He added that he has resolved not to, necessarily, identify as a gospel musician anymore.
I just separated myself from the Gospel industry for a while, but I’m in Christ and the Lord is my personal saviour.
I think right now Wanani is the most played song in the country, and it’s because it requested for by secular and gospel fans because I’m still a son of Christ,” said Bahati.
Explaining the move via his YouTube channel, Bahati said the decision was as a result of frustrations.
“Right now in the country as we speak, I have become one of the most talked-about artists, with the highest hate from people,” Bahati said.
“Hate is not bad. But what is the need of receiving hate from artists who I am helping from scratch?.
When I started to support them no one cared, but ones they get famous, they create false stories to make them trend.
You know, this ministry of me helping them out, then, they turn one me and soil my name, is there a need for me to do it?” he posed.
