Gospel singer Kevin Kioko known for his stage moniker Bahati for the better of Saturday and Sunday faced the wrath of Kenyans on social media over his comment on King Kaka’s Wajinga Nyinyi (you are fools) poetic piece.

The piece describes the rot in Kenya including social ills such as corruption, nepotism, unemployment and failing leadership in the political class. Without mincing words, King Kaka, born Kennedy Ombima, named politicians accused of the vices.

Bahati was among Kenyans who expressed his mind after the masterpiece got the nation talking.

He said: “A Voice Sent By God @RabbitTheKing 🔥🔥🔥 #WajingaNyinyi Vote Wisely.”

However, the comment didn’t augur well with tweeps who dressed him down.

Bahati was among a number of singers who performed for the Jubilee party during the 2017 presidential campaigns.

Not a people to forget quickly, the tweeps reminded him that he’s one of the people vigorously campaigned and voted for the “oppressive regime” that has not kept its manifesto as detailed by King Kaka.

Others also took a swipe at King Kaka revealing that in the same period he rooted for President Uhuru Kenyatta.

In the hit, endorsed by firebrand lawyer Miguna Miguna, activist Boniface Mwangi, the award-winning artiste talks about the Kenyan voter who is always blind to issues when at the ballot.

“Sisi ni vipofu na viziwi…na tunajua translator wetu alishadedi.2022 already si mnajua nani ni Prezzi… si mnajua nyinyi voters ni washenzi… So, unashangaa akilli zenu time ya kura zinajaa [expletive],” he said.

He further takes shots at individual politicians like Kirinyaga governor Anne Mumbi who was widely mentioned in the first NYS scandal in which the taxpayer lost atleast Ksh790 million.

He also mentions Kiambu governor Ferdinand Waititu and Nairobi’s Mike Sonko.

“How is Waiguru in office? How did we forget the NYS scandal? How can a biro that costs Ksh 20 be bought for Ksh 8,000? The city stadium has been in renovation for three years while Sonko is just busy dancing in the studio.

“On the other hand, Waititu’s daughter’s account has a deposit of Ksh100 million,” he raps.

Rabbit the King as he is also known talked about corruption in institutions like the police force, Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA).

In a message to President Kenyatta, the father of three raps about the hefty loans acquired yet civil servants keep on taking to the streets in protest of bad working conditions.

“The economy in Kenya is hard and there’s not enough to eat. Welcome to Kenya, the Republic of China.

“Teachers and doctors keep striking yet the president addresses the situation by stating that they be fired if they don’t go back to work,” he sings.

The 6 minutes 57 seconds video has elicited reactions on social media. Critics reckon that he should not have thrown jibes at individuals while leaving out others.

Fans, on the other hand, congratulated him for using his artistry to get the word out about what really ails the country.
