After dropping a collabo with The Boondoks gang, Kevin Kioko (Bahati) has not had it good. People from all over came forward to criticize his decision to collaborate with The Boondoks gang who are notoriously known for the raunchiness in their lyrics and non-spiritual content. It is no wonder Bahati, a controversial gospel artist, has been on the receiving end for the most part of the week for the song ‘Taniua’ even an FM Presenter Scolds Bahati Over Mediocrity .
Yesterday, February 12th, Cate Rira who hosts Nation FM’s Breakfast show played the song on air and she could not bear it. She paused the song mid-air and started calling out Bahati. In the rant, Ms Rira pointed out that its high time radio presenters and fans stop lying to musicians that they are on the right track, when clearly they have lost it.
Nation FM Presenter Scolds Bahati Over Mediocrity
Ms Rira stated that Bahati’s news song “Taniua” is mediocre and people should not shy away from telling him the truth. In part of the video, Cate said, “Bahati first of all this is some bunch of Nonsense kwangu, for lack of a better word and if you feel bad take it up with someone else. I’m gonna tell it out with so much passion. The reason as to why our Industry will never grow is because we allow Mediocrity. I don’t have a problem with Gengetone, it is good I love it and I dance to it, but when you don’t use effort to bring out or to even speak the real gospel now that’s some trash.
“Let me tell you where we presenters go wrong, just because the song is trending let’s put it on blast, other industry’s don’t allow mediocrity to be broadcasted every day. Where we go wrong is that we allow mediocrity to surface everywhere and presenters go wrong. I know Mambo Mseto will promote this, I know people like Jalas wataipromote. I know there are people who will promote it, shame on you for doing that, you know why, you are the reason why our industry won’t grow. If something is mediocre stop elevating it.
I’m gonna call Bahati for an interview here to tell me why he is doing songs like this and things that are good to broadcast. Also producers why are you allowing mediocrity to be here, let’s not allow mediocrity, we want out industry to grow lest reduce the mediocrity,”
