Bahati forced off the stage during chaotic show
Gospel artiste Bahati left his horde of fans in Embu disappointed, after he abandoned his show during a voters’ registration mobilization drive on Saturday.
The popular singer had just performed three songs and was performing the hit Mapenzi, when he encountered a problem with the microphone.
A replacement was soon brought and Bahati, who had a good time mingling with the fans at Embu College, continued belting his hit for a moment before the second mic also failed and he dropped it to the ground.
DJ Sadik, who was on the decks, continued playing the song as Bahati went around greeting the fans but no other microphone was handed to him, during the function organized by 70% plus one Jubilee Tuko pamoja movement.
Though he appeared agitated, the artiste kept his cool as he lip synched his song before going to the back of the stage and consulting an aide.
Then he jumped off the stage and was later whisked away even as the fans tried to block his way, complaining that he had not yet sang his most popular song Barua.
His entire performance lasted less than 30 minutes.
“Someone made a false alarm that there was fire and I think it got him scared,” said one of the security persons contracted for the function.
Earlier on, Avril, Anto Neo Soul, DJ Sadik, DJ Dolls and Tuko Pamoja dancers had wowed the crowd with Avril thrilling the fans with her seductive dance.
However, one of the event organizer Mr Ken Gaitho said they were happy that the fans had a great evening and were able to talk to the youth about the need to register as voters.
