As the new season of continental music reality TV show Coke Studio kicks off, award-winning gospel star Bahati makes history by becoming the first gospel artiste to be profiled among other Africa greats.
The singer, who missed this year’s Groove Awards seems to be reclaiming his glory.
“I am greatly overwhelmed. This is a beautiful thing. As I go in there, I will be giving it my best shot. Africa better get ready,” Bahati told Pulse after receiving the news.
The humble but versatile young celebrity will be recording alongside celebrated Nigerian artiste Kiss Daniel during the shoot slotted for next week.
Only the crème de la crème in continental showbiz make it to Coke Studio Africa.
Bahati who emerged among the top four highest earners in the recently released Skiza Tunes payments missed on the Groove awards presumably due to his differences with his fellow gospel artiste Willy Paul; a matter that is perceived to have created a rift in the local gospel industry.
