In an interview with SDE, the ‘Kama Ni Sawa’ hitmaker argues that many gospel artistes have turned away from the word of God and would rather be controversial in order to make sales and gain popularity.
“Sexual immorality, drug abuse, cohabiting and swaggering are just but a few unpopular realities happening daily within gospel circles,” said Mr T.
“There are many dark secrets that no one wants to talk about as everyone fears being victimised.”
He further revealed that weekend house parties are popular among gospel errant gospel stars including members of a popular gospel dance group.
“In these parties ‘saved’ people drink, smoke and engage in sexual immorality. I am not mentioning names but I choose to speak out because no one has been forthcoming.”
“In the past when gospel artistes joined the media in condemning DNG for allegedly drinking in a pub; it hit me that we are a bunch of hypocrites,” Mr T went on.
The Angaza host also recalled a recent incident in Eldoret when a popular gospel hip-hop artiste refused to speak to a bishop, referring him to his manager.
“The leading North Rift bishop approached the artiste to ask him to visit his church. The artiste said ‘talk to my manager’. The bishop left in disbelief after the artistes’ manager demanded Sh100,000 for a 15-minute appearance and first class return air ticket to Eldoret,” Mr T said.
Speaking on the recent beef between Willy Paul and Bahati, Mr T claimed that Bahati needed a publicity stunt ahead of the Groove Awards nominations.
“With Groove Awards nominations beckoning Bahati needed something controversial to spring him back into showbiz and an attack on Willy Paul was the best strategy.”
“I have listened to both alleged stolen songs, I see nothing similar in them,” he added.
He concluded by singling out Daddy Owen and Rufftone as the most respected gospel artistes because of their deep religious faith.
