Award-winning Kenyan musician Bahati has dropped the remix to his latest hit song ‘Wanani’.
In the remix, Bahati has featured a number of music stars that include; Mejja, Petra, Ssaru, Boondocks Gang’s Odi wa Murang’a and Benzema from Ochungulo Family.
The remix has maintained the original chorus with the new entrant lacing their verses on the original beat.
The video is simple, and has been shot in a studio setting due to the corona virus pandemic that has led to restriction of movement in the country.
A day after it premiered, the video is currently trending at position 3 on YouTube Kenya with over 190k views.
The original version elicited massive reactions online, with some fans claiming that Bahati had ditched the gospel music industry.
Responding to the claims, Bahati noted that he has a lot of fans who have different needs. According to him, some of his fans listen to his music for spiritual nourishment, while others listen to his tracks hoping to get encouragement especially in matters love.
“Kwa wimbo wangu mpya ‘Wanani’ I just wanted to do something tofauti kiasi, sababu nina mafans tofauti tofauti. Kuna mafans ambao nawafeed kiroho na kuna mafans ambao pia wanafaa kuwa encouraged in terms of love issues, sababu mapenzi ni maisha yetu ya kila siku. So I just did something unique,” he said during an interview with Mzazi Willy Tuva.
