Jimmy Gait: Valentine’s Day is demonic

Gospel singer Jimmy Gait has sensationally claimed that Valentine’s Day is a demonic day and should not be celebrated or given much importance.

According to the Huratiti hitmaker February 14 is not a Christian day, it is a day celebrated as Lupercalia, known as the festival of sexual license.

“This demonic day was held by the ancient Romans in honor of Lupercus, god of fertility and husbandry, protector of herds and crops and a mighty hunter, especially of wolves. The Romans believed that Lupercus would protect Rome from roving bands of wolves, which devoured livestock and people,” Jimmy Gait explained.

“In addition to this on February 14, billets (small pieces of paper, each of which had the name of a teenage girl written on it) were put into a container. Teenage boys would then choose one billet at random. The boy and the girl whose name was drawn would become a couple joining in erotic sexual games at feasts and parties,” the singer further said.

After a dazzling career in the music industry, Jimmy Gait left the limelight to concentrate on other projects. Not much had been heard of him until recently during an exclusive interview with Nairobi News.

The last time he was trending was after he commented on the issue of Kenyan girls suffering while working in Middle East countries.

“I am perfectly okay and living my private life. I am only public when I am ministering to people. My private life is not public business. My ministry and business in what is public,” he said during that interview.

Asked why he has not released music for such a long time, Jimmy Gait said everything has seasons and stages.

“You may look at someone and think they are done, but that is when God is preparing them for greatness,” he said, adding that he does not subscribe to people’s expectations but God’s.

“I don’t owe anyone any explanation as to why I am not releasing any song or why I am not on social media. I am entitled to leave my life the way I want or the way I feel led by God,” he said.
