bahaThe ‘beef’ between top gospel hitmakers Bahati and Willy Paul appears to be far from over despite Willy Paul’s recent efforts to make peace.

Almost a week after Willy Paul wrote a lengthy apology to Bahati, and an appeal to do a collabo together, sources with Bahati’s camp say that the apology is a publicity stunt to promote his upcoming song, ‘Sijafika.’

This was Willy Paul’s apology;

( BAHATI )Today I woke up with my heart feeling so heavy….. feeling that there’s something missing…. I want to talk about a brother that I’ve not been in good terms with, a brother who was a real brother before all the fame… I know many might hate me because they were made to believe that I stole which was never the case, so today I stand here to make peace and to ask anyone who I might have offended to forgive me… I am only human.. no man is perfect…. man is to error and so am I. First and foremost, I really want to be in good terms with my brother @bahatikenya I want us to do a clean ministry, no competition no nothing…. if possible, a collaboration with @bahatikenya would really show unity among our followers and listeners.. as we speak our people are divided like the secular GULLYSIDE AND GAZA and it’s not supposed to be like that. We are supposed to be one.. so my brother @bahatikenya let’s come together… put our differences aside and join hands in taking our ministries to the next level….. I know men have an ego but I put mine down to bring peace among us….. I remember when we first both won, we were best of friends. I won the male artist 2013 and you won the new artist 2012… and we were both happy… we spent the night at my place with joy in our eyes as brothers … I wonder what happened… am writing this from deep down my heart.. we have given the devil a chance in our lives and that’s why all these is happening… it’s time to chase away the devil… Again, let’s not make it look like a competition coz that’s not what it is… it’s ministry.. and the only way we can do that is by forgiving one another, working together and moving forward… am ready to work with you anytime bro. Let’s make our God happy. He put us here with a purpose… let’s keep the focus.. Baraka..

As Bahati continues to remain mum on the issue, the unnamed source claims that Willy Paul has nothing to apologise for after they made up earlier in the year.

The source was speaking to Chillax, saying, “Willy has a new song coming up, and he wants to use this to make his song big… Bahati is busy working on new music and has no time to compete with Willy.”

“Furthermore, Bahati said a long time ago that he has forgiven Willy. What is Willy guilty of? Why does he want to bring back the issue when has Bahati moved on already?”

Bahati is said to be busy organising his next media tour to Tanzania and South Africa.
