They wanted to give me Sh.10m if I didn’t mention Jesus in my songs-Jimmy Gait

Jimmy Gait was one of the veterans in gospel music, a man who has witnessed many ups and downs during his illustrious, some would say controversial career.

The man who has been depressed, gotten bankrupt and became rich all in the space of one solitary year recently spoke about dark forces that tried to lure him into Illuminati/freemasonry.

Speaking with a local radio station,  Jimmy revealed that as long as one is in the music industry, then you don’t get spared from these shadowy figures.

“I remember meeting these guys [foreigners using local representatives] who wanted to sign me and were promising me a lot of money. The only thing they wanted me to do is to do more of inspirational music and not to mention Jesus in my song.”

He said that his advantage while dealing with these people was that he had done research on how Illuminati and how freemasonry works.

“If you don’t know how they operate, you will easily fall into their trap. I remember they were supposed to do an album for me and first give me a down payment of KSh10M. This was like 5 years ago and it was really tempting and they were globally well connected with big International brands.

But his antennas went up when they asked him to go light on the “God Thing” and become more secular a big red flag for the singer.

“When I went home, I could tell something was wrong, my spirit was grieved. Can you imagine being given KSh10M but you’re not happy. I didn’t feel the happiness in me, I was grieving in my spirit and I knew for a fact, it was a red flag and that’s how I didn’t take it.”

Cancer News: Jimmy Gait slams rumors of battling serious illness

 

Jimmy Gait jetted off to New Delhi, India, where he hopes doctors will conduct tests on him to reveal what he is ailing from.

The Muhadhara hitmaker said on his Youtube Channel that he has been undergoing many tests and fans should stop assuming that he is suffering from throat cancer.

I have been having a throat problem for a long time and was not able to get a cure back at home. Last five days has been test after test.

There is a rumour going on social media that I have throat cancer. I don’t know where that came from. We are still doing tests and until the results are out, it’s not right to spread that. It’s already affecting my close people. They are worried about me.

Everything is going well and I can’t wait to come back home and I’m believing God that I’ll be okay.

I WENT TO HOSPITAL LAST YEAR BECAUSE I COULD NOT SING AND EVEN TALK IN A LOUD VOICE.

I AM GOING FOR TREATMENT, I WILL BE LEAVING FOR INDIA ON SUNDAY.

I HAD BEEN ADMITTED TO AGA KHAN FOR DAYS GOING THROUGH CHECKUPS AND THOSE ARE THE PHOTOS DOING ROUNDS ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

During the interview on The Trend with Anita Nderu, Jimmy Gait broke down as he explained the insensitive comments and feedback he got from his fans, saying that he felt like trash.

Brenda, who committed suicide by throwing herself into oncoming traffic on Waiyaki Way, had gone through a series of disappointing life incidences that saw her little one defiled and not getting any justice from the police, who even took advantage of her.

This news shocked everyone with celebrities taking to social media to urge Kenyans to stop cyber bullying.

One of those celebrities who was saddened by the news was media personality Victoria Rubadiri, who decided to give her voice on this matter on her show, but this got out of hand when some people trolled her for talking about the sad topic.

Rubadiri then went online to share her disappointment for those who actually attack people fighting cyber bullying:

Ah the irony, you get trolled for having a convo on cyberbullying. Just a mention of the word and folk go ham. Like playing fetch.

Ironically, one of the people to troll her was Robert Alai, telling her to get her facts rights as a journalist. Check out the tweet below.

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 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.
