Singer Bahati has warned his followers to stop referring to him as Mheshimiwa months after losing the August General election.

Taking to social media, the Adhiambo hitmaker asked his followers to stick to referring to him as Bahati.

"Sielewi Mbona Bado Watu Wananiita MHESH... Niiteni tuu Bahati Please."

Bahati recently returned to social media after a two-month break with a new song 'Mambo Ya Mhesh'.

He has been missing in action since he lost the August General elections.

In the comment section, Bahati told his fans to forget about him being in politics as he is back in music.

"Hii Mambo Ya Mhesh Wekeni Kando.... THE KING IS BACK!!! Tell Me. What Happened While I Was Away???"

Bahati was vying for the Mathare MP seat under the Jubilee party.

Bahati had claimed to have spent over Sh30million on campaigns.

Bahati stated that most of his campaign money came from well-wishers, including his fans, friends, and his political party, Jubilee.

"It costs more than Sh50million to campaign as an MP in Kenya, and yes, it's a lot of money," said Bahati.

 "I have spent Sh33million in my campaign so far… I have received a lot of support from various people and groups. There's a Sh10million budget for the election day."

Bahati also recently expressed confidence that one day a Kamba politician will lead the country.

"My prayer is that the Kamba people hold each other."
