Bahati stoked controversy last month when he got President Kenyatta from his seat and sat on it as he performed during the launch of Jubilee Party at Kasarani.

Many criticised the move saying he had cheapened the presidency.

Bahati later apologized, albeit tongue in cheek.

The musician was part of people attending the Youth Summit at State House, Nairobi. The two met outside, with no seats around them.

An Instagram user (@dennismaisiba1991) commented: “Hapa najua uhuru ameingiza kabaridi. Hataki bahati aingie kwa nyumba.”
