Jimmy Gait disclosed that he was told to slow down on mentioning God in his songs
The entertainment scene has always been rocked with artists with a fascination with the darker entity. Gospel singer Jimmy Gait stopped by TV47 and talked about his encounter with devil-worshipping.
Jimmy Gait recounted how he met some foreigners five years ago who wanted to sign him, promising a lot of money after failing to make money from music.
The ‘Muhadhara‘ hitmaker said he was offered Ksh 10 million and not mention Jesus’s name in his songs.
“The only thing they wanted me to do was more inspirational songs. They did not tell me to leave gospel music but they told me not to mention Jesus in my songs. As an artist, you research those things to avoid falling into their traps. They were supposed to do an album for me and would give me a down payment of Sh10 million,” Jimmy Gait said.
Gait went on to add that he felt tempted by the offer but declined to accept it after they told him to tone down on mentioning God.
He added: “They were globally connected and they wanted to share my music across nations. They were talking about the big stations, like Trace.”
“They said they needed me to look more contemporary and tone down on mentioning God. And that was the number one thing that made me not to fall into their trap.”
Gait revealed that many Kenyan artists have been recruited unknowingly
