Renowned musician Kevin Kioko popularly known as Bahati has responded to claims that he stole his new song Pete Yangu featuring Nadia Mukami from Rwandese musician called Butera Knowles.
The allegations were brought forward by a social media user identified as @its_shady_047 who compared the song and found a striking resemblance.
Butera released her song Peke Yangu five years ago.
However, shutting down the allegations, Bahati stated that the move was led by his haters who wanted to bring him down.
He said that his haters were just jealous of him tending number one, two and three on YouTube.
“It’s normal !!! When you are no #1, every number last will envy and try hate on you because they don’t understand why god has chosen you and not them!!!”
