However, what caught the attention of many was the album’s cover.
In one of the images, Bahati grabs the model’s thigh as she holds on to his shoulder and in the other one, the vixen embraces the singer from behind with her manicured nails clutching on to his coat and chest.
The model featured on the album cover is Diana Chacha who doubles up as gospel singer Linnet Munyali, alias Size 8’s assistant.
On Tuesday, June 15, the model resurfaced after revealing that the gospel singer has not talked to her since the skimpy photos were released.
“She has not talked to me and she is not impressed. I might lose my job. I am planning to explain myself to her. I am just a fashion model. I hope she understands I am building my brand,” she told Word Is.
Chacha further stated that Size 8’s brand may be compromised following her move, adding that she fears the gospel star might fire her.
She further admitted that she did the shoot without Size 8’s knowledge.
“I did not tell Size 8 I was going to do the cover since being her PA and the kind of music she is doing, it was not going to be fine with her. I made a personal decision, knowing that I work for a gospel brand, and went ahead and did the shoot without saying. She saw it on social media and we have not talked but I am sure there is a lot of disappointment. She is disappointed with me,” said Diana.
“There is some tension between Size 8 and me since she would expect me to go in a certain direction spiritually. I have not branded myself as a gospel person but my boyfriend is in the gospel industry. He is her friend and he did not have a problem with me doing it.”
