Bahati is a gospel musician who is currently dealing with some bad publicity. The artiste recently had one of his established stars, Mr Seed, leave the EMB label under a cloud of controversy.
But it seems that that isn’t the only bad news that may be following the star. A music promoter who goes by the names of Clay Onyango contacted Mpasho telling us a worrying story that concerns the “Mama” hit-maker.
Hi guys , my name is Clay Onyango a Music promoter in Sweden. I also have a story about Bahati that l want to share. Some 2 years ago we agreed in going into partnership between my label World Music Promoters and EMB , so we agreed to build a Studio in Membley in a mansion he got. I paid the deposit and l started investing money in building the studio. When the studio was complete Bahati moved in and started Working while also recording some artists. So one day he calls Me and he is like , l understand u Are going around telling people that This studio is yours, l Dont think l wonna Work With you. Calculate how much money u have invested and send Me your account Nbr. I did that and it has been one year now. The amount is almost 500 K and Bahati does not respond to my calls. Am sending u some photos of the studio and some photos of Me packing some of my stuff from the studio.
Clay sent photos of him supposedly taking away his goods from the the studios. The photos are below:
Clay who is currently in Sweden was so frustrated with the singer that he even reported him to the DCI Industrial Area. The OB number is 271-79 2018. He even sent us screenshots of his conversations with the star artiste. The screenshots are below:
Our attempts to reach Bahati for comment were unsuccessful, as he refused to respond to our calls and WhatsApp message.

This is not the first time Bahati is been accused of fraud by a business-man. Benson Thuranira reported that “he had been defrauded off Sh200,000 by Kevin Bahati Kioko under false pretenses that he would get premises under which they would both operate a business”.
Thuranira even went as far as to write a letter to the DPP. How will this turn out for the singer.
