BIOGRAPHY

Born Kevin Bahati. He is the fastest growing gospel Musician from Kenya; East Africa. Eastlands Most Beloved!

Bahati’s life story reminisce the dreams of any kid growing in an unforgiving world and has nothing else but hopes and dreams. Orphaned at a young age, Bahati’s mum passed on when he was very little; in nursery school. His well-to-do father then remarried and relocated to another part of the country. They never met for more than 8 years and this time, his suffering led him to ABC Children’s Home,Mathare. While at the children home, a young passionate Bahati found solace in music. He made his entry into the arts through reciting Swahili poetry in school and church. In 2010, Bahati represented St. Teresa’s Boys Eastleigh in the Music Festival National competition in Nakuru where he played the guitar.

In 2013, his musical journey kicked off with the release his first single and video titled Siku ya Kwanza. In this song, he talks about his first day he got saved. The song received considerable airplay. Bahati’s breakthrough came through when he won the coveted New Gospel artist of the year, Groove Awards 2013 in an event that was graced by President Uhuru Kenyatta and televised live to millions of viewers in Africa.

Bahati followed up with Wangu, collaboration with Mr Seed. Soon after releasing ‘Mama’ and topping the charts. Bahati felt inspired to sing about his life thus the song ‘Machozi’. The Video was shot in Mathare slums (where he lived before venturing into music), Bahati narrates his story alongside the onlookers most of whom he grew up with.
