EXCLUSIVE: Gospel musician Bahati lands multi-million deal for his reality TV show

Gospel musician Kevin Bahati has landed a multi-million deal for his upcoming reality TV show that will air on NTV.

Bahati’s show will open up his love life to his fans in a big way. It will feature his wife Diana Marua, his baby mama Yvette Obura and two daughters.

Pressed on how much the deal is worth, Bahati was coy with the details, only saying; “It’s a good deal worth lots of money, I am so excited about it so let’s wait.”

NTV’s head of TV Justus Tharao said the show will prominently feature the singer’s love life as well as behind the scenes stories of his celebrity lifestyle.

It is set to start airing after the World Cup.


The show is part of the new menu to be unveiled by the station, including In house, a magazine show featuring the stories of A-list Kenyan celebrities. Others are a new-look The Trend Show, Teen Republic and Property Show which will have a new host, Jamila Mbugua.

New comedy and drama series are also part of the changes in programming that NTV will bring on board.

Bahati got married to Diana Marua in October 2017 in a private wedding and the two welcomed a daughter Heaven on February 14, 2018.

He also has a baby mama, Yvette Obura who birthed his first daughter Mueni whom he introduced to the world via Instagram in 2017.

Yvette has been flaunting her new figure online after a successful weight loss challenge.


Diana on her part has been sharing her motherhood struggles on Instagram, delving into breastfeeding and sleep deprivation matters.

Speaking to Nairobi News, Bahati said the first episode of his reality TV show will go live on the last weekend of July.

“You might have seen the advert running on NTV about a show I am featured. It’s a reality show that will start to air after the World Cup. It will air during prime time on Sundays” Bahati disclosed.

“There is so much that people don’t know about me, like my wedding, the dowry payment ceremony and much more about my personal life,” he added.
