Renowned gospel artiste Bahati has pleaded with his fans for support as he aims to help a young man by the name Peter to go back to school as well as realize his dreams in music.
Bahati took to his Instagram page to narrate Peter’s emotional story, saying he left his home Taita Taveta for Nairobi in search of greener pastures after he dropped out of school due to lack of school fees.
Bahati says he intends to send the young, ambitious gentleman to school while at the same time helping him to realize his music ambition.
Now he appeals his fans for help and advice on whether to take Peter back to school or just focus on growing his music career.
This is what he posted on Instagram;
LONG POST ALERT❗Let me Introduce You to #PETER 18 Years Old from #Mghange Village in Taita Taveta. He left home almost an year ago after dropping out of High school in form Two due to fee arrears. Peter tells me he left the Village to Nairobi to Come look for Bahati and see if his dream in Music will one day Come true.
Though he’s Never been to Nairobi he Knew akipanda Trailer/ Lorry ya Mizigo hadi Mlolongo God will make a way. But even after getting to Nai’ & finding Our offices somehow he was Unlucky because he’s never found me in Studio and that’s how he Ended up Working as a Security Guard at Versity Ville Estate in Ruiru as he hopes God will bring an Angel to his rescue Juu ananishow Ile Baridii iko Pale sio Mchezoo.
Working with no Days- off na Mshahara ni Kiasi sana that’s the Reason he’s not been in a position to go back home to say Hi to his siblings, Mother & Dad. Picture taken a few days ago; I’ve Paid & recorded his 1st three songs and for Sure this Young Boy Can Sing❗But even with the Passion that God has Put in me to support Unknown Musicians I strongly believe that helping #Peter go back to School and Empower him with Knowledge will be greater than just being a Musician and the reason I am writing this is because I want you all my Fans to support me in taking him back to school even as I plan how to help him Musically!
As I work on getting him a School ;GOD – WILLING During one of my resting days This Coming week I will be Visiting his parents to help me understand his background; this will be like an Eight (8) hours Drive from Nairobi. To my Followers, Fans & Friends: If We Come Together nothing is Impossible! And Because I will GREATLY need your Support in Impacting the Life of #PETER Please Advise on what to do first- I’LL CHOSE THE MOST SUGGESTED :-
1. SUPPORT HIS MUSIC
2. TAKE HIM TO SCHOOL
3. Or BOTH
