Bahati’s old friend Alex Mathenge has revealed that he housed and helped him back when he was still starting out in the industry.
Speaking in an interview with Mpasho.co.ke, Mathenge said,
He used to stay at my place. I was like a big brother to him and also his confidant.
They were good friends before Bahati called cops to arrest him for a mistake he hadn’t done.
HE CAME WITH THREE SUBARUS FULL OF POLICEMEN JUST BECAUSE OF A FACEBOOK POST. “WE’VE BEEN TOLD YOU POSTED PHOTOS OF DEAD SOLDIERS ON HIS FACEBOOK,” ONE OF THE POLICE OFFICERS TOLD ME,’ the comedian said.
I TOLD THEM I DIDN’T AND WAS TAKEN TO KASARANI POLICE STATION. AFTER THE POLICE OFFICERS SEARCHED THE PAGE THEY DIDN’T FIND THE PHOTOS. BAHATI HAD ALREADY DELETED THE POST.
Mathenge also revealed that Bahati used to take his then girlfriend [Yvette Obura] to his house.
Alikuwa anakuja na dem yake kwangu [He used to come with his girlfriend [Yvette] at my place. He knew I wouldn’t go out telling people.
Bahati and Yvette dated for quite a while and were blessed with a baby girl, who’s four years now.
