‘Prayer partner’ or bae? Kenyans take a cue from gospel singer Bahati
Kenyans on social media have replaced old fashioned names for a lover such as bae, better half, girlfriend or boyfriend with a new word – prayer partner – thanks to gospel singer Bahati.
It all began when Bahati posted a picture of himself and model Diana Marua on his Instagram page with the caption: “This’s is the Year of seeking God – Who’s Complaining about me having a PRAYER PARTNER???”
Diana was featured Bahati’s Mapenzi video, which initially suggested that the singer had secretly gotten married.
However, from Bahati’s post Diana is more than just a model in his music videos but also a “prayer partner”.
Kenyans on social media have since taken a cue from Bahati to share photos of themselves in the company of their own “prayer partners”.
Here are some of the posts:
