Musician Bahati(born Kevin Kioko) has rued missing out on an opportunity to feature on the Netflix reality show ‘Young, Famous and African’.
The singer claims he was set to feature on the second season of the reality show but could not because of political engagements.
Bahati vied for the Mathare Parliamentary seat in the August 2022 General Election but finished a distant third.
The singer said the election coincided with the shooting of ‘Young, Famous and African’.
“I was supposed to be on the second season of ‘Young, Famous and African’. We went through the run and everything.
“They wanted me to shoot between July and August. It was election time,” he said.
Bahati said the Netflix gig was one of the things he missed out on due to politics.
“That was one of the things I missed. God’s timing is the best.”
The singer said he also had to terminate all his endorsements with various corporates to focus on politics.
“When I knew I was getting into politics, I personally called every client and requested to step down. I told them to allow me to step down during the campaign season. I stepped down from many clients.
“I can say thank you to the fans and thank you to God that my numbers were so big after politics. I had attracted a lot of attention.”
