Kelvin Bahati and Diana Marua Reality Show, Music and Latest News
Kelvin Bahati is well known to the public as Bahati. He is an award-winning gospel artist in Kenya. On his birth, he was named Kevin Kioko Bahati, that was in 1993, just recently, right?
Just like the suffering of any street kid, Bahati's life story is a clear proof that all dreams are valid regardless of the place one comes from. Bearing in mind also that Bahati became an orphan at a very young age wherein, his mother passed away while he was still in nursery school when he barely understood anything.
From the ashes of a street kid, Bahati became one of the fast-rising stars in the music industry. Since the introduction of his hits, he was well received in the market hence garnered much motivation to push ahead with his seemingly correct career pathway.
His songs spread like wildfire and within no time, he was the talk of the town as his music captured all audience's attention as not only were the adults enjoying his music but kids as well.
The music thing flowed so well for him and he diversified to an adventurous reality TV show which talks about his lifestyle and is aired on a national TV.
By the time his parents died, Bahati had no one left to take care of him due to his tender age and that translates to the fact that he did not have someone to take him to school too.
Bahati was a bright child, he took an initiative and decided to go to ABC orphanage which is located in Mathare slums so that he could be able to at least get shelter and education for his poor self.
There, he was received and the management agreed to take care of him due to his genuine case and luckily he was taken to the school where he studied hard until high school years where he first attended Nakeel school in Ongata Rongai in Kajiado before he was moved to St. Theresa’s boys in Eastleigh.
By the time he completed his high school studies, he performed quite well where he scooped a C+ in his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education in 2011. Upon completion of his studies, in 2012, he decided to look for a way to find some little cash for his upkeep, and that is when he decided to venture into the music industry.
Bahati's music talent was discovered during his high school days. His audacity, courage, and passion in the music talent were discovered when he composed a solo performance way back in 2010 and played the guitar during the National Music Festival in 2010 which was held in Nakuru.
In the same year, Kevin Bahati also represented his school, St. Theresa's boy's High school based in Eastleigh with a song and played the guitar along and that saw him to the nationals level once more in the Music Festival, that is in 2011.
This time around, things were not usually as he received the special accolade for his prowess in guitar playing and his piece was also loved by all his audience. This took him turns as his confidence in music went to another level and he believed that he would do it no matter what.
After his high school studies, he decided to fully concentrate on music not only for his passion but also to get to change the fate of his life and live the life he dreamt of.
Immediately after secondary education, he coupled up with J.Blessing and L.B Films who produced his first song.
The song was well received by the public and it propelled him to the celebrity world in the gospel industry, the demand for his more songs from the public was such a blessing to him and he felt motivated to see to it that he satisfied them fully.
Having grown up as an orphan who lost his mother when he was barely 7 years old, he knew the pain of being an orphan, and therefore he adopted two daughters and one son.
Just like any other human of blood and flesh, he was entangled in relationships but finally settled and married Diana Marua. Before then, he had a child with Yvette Obura before they broke up and that girl, Mueni Bahati has always been his pride.
Kevin Bahati and Diana Marua being a couple are blessed with two children Heaven and Majesty and it would not make sense ending without mentioning that Bahati’s wife came from a well off family unlike him who struggled with ghetto life.
Her father, Joseph Omach is among the cancer advocates who are on the frontline fighting against cancer patients’ stigmatization. Her father is also a founder of an NGO of the childhood cancer initiative since 2009.
The couple has met several challenges along the way but they have stood for one another. Recently, they had a show that was more into showcasing their life to the public and it was countered with a lot of critic from Kenyans.
Netizens took to social media trolling hard against the Bahati’s with claims that they did not meet the expectations of their fans.
Regardless of all this, the show received a nomination of being the best TV show in Kenya and he could not keep quiet with the news but went ahead and shared with his fans. The show was also nominated in the Kalasha awards alongside other shows.
Important to note, Bahati has received several awards since he ventured into the music industry. He received a groove award that is always eyed by many singers for being the best male gospel singer back in 2014.
That is aside from the many nominations he received for the best video of the year and best collaboration. He was also named the best gospel artiste in Africa.
Recently, he closed down EMB Records and opened up that he was quitting the gospel industry due to individuals who are there in the industry to pull others down so they can flourish alone, this was saddening as the old people in the industry are supposed to nurture young talent but that was contrary.
He further claimed the gospel industry was full of hatred than love hence, he would rather find any other way of serving his God away from toxic people.
