Popular gospel singer Jimmy Gait was the guest on The Trend this previous week where he spoke about his latest single dubbed ‘Love’, the local entertainment industry among other things.
During the interview, the musician who rose to fame after releasing a single titled ‘Huratete’ in 2011, was asked how he feels about being trolled by Kenyans for his funny song titles.
Gait nearly came to tears while explaining to Anita Nderu, who was sitting in for Larry, that the latest incident made him feel like he is trash.
The award-winning gospel musician said he didn’t anticipate the negative reactions that he received from Kenyans after debuting ‘Yesu Ndiye Sponsor’.
He said his songs are about real life situations from a Christian’s perspective, adding that he was shocked by the reactions that he got from netizens the next morning.
“I WOKE UP IN THE MORNING AND I WAS TRENDING LIKE I HAD NEVER SEEN BEFORE. TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, I WAS GOING THROUGH THE TIMELINE AND I’M LIKE JESUS WHAT’S THIS AND IT WAS SO DIFFICULT FOR ME,” GAIT SAID.
He went on to add that he was more startled that Kenyans had forgotten all the good songs that he has done for them and were now insulting him and saying all sorts of things about him.
Gait told Anita that he really felt bad because he’s also a human being who has emotions while trying to fight back tears from his eyes.
