Celebrated gospel star Ben Githae is at pains to explain why he has used his massive influence to churn out a catchy political tune for the Jubilee camp.
His single, Uhuru Ruto Tano Tena is a call for voters to give the two another term to run the country.
"Supportive messages regarding my song were plenty compared to the criticism. I support Jubilee, I am one of the brand ambassadors in the Team Uhuru Tano Tena campaign, I had to come up with something creative," Ben Gitae told Word Is.
He continued, "I also have a democratic right to support whoever I like and I have been doing political rallies since 2011 so it shouldn't be an issue. I have not lost a fan, if I have then those are NASA supporters."
When asked about how much he was paid for the sizzling single, Githae said that is his personal secret and couldn’t say if he was paid or not.
He actually confirmed that he will still continue doing gospel despite what people think of him.
