Celebrated Kikuyu Gospel musician Ben Githai is set to officially release a new song dubbed Tuungane na BBI aiming at promoting the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
Although Githae has not officially launched the song, he released a snippet of the music on Sunday the 25th of October 2020. The short clip made rounds in social media and trended for the better part of Sunday.
Speaking with a local daily, the musician confirmed that the song was his and shut down rumours questioning its legitimacy.
“I recorded the song, that is my voice. I plan to release the full song soon. I will issue more details about the song in due time,’ Githae said.
Ben Githae is using the song to drum up support for the Uhuru-Raila brainchild in the GEMA region. According to him, the report is set to solidify and unify Kenyans throughout the country.
He further claims that the report will be a breath of fresh air as it ushers in a new dawn. According to him, the BBI will help in reducing the social class that has always been an issue in Kenya.
Ben Githae is famous for his hit song Tano Tena that broke the airwaves back in 2017. The music helped garner more votes for President Uhuru Kenyatta for his second term.
Although previously Githae was a gospel artist, he has since changed tune and focused on political songs. He recently released a song Gukuagira Gukira which heaps praise son president Uhuru.
In June, Githae also released a political song, Ruhiu Rwa Uthamakii that sparked controversies in the country. The music centred on Uhuru’s success stories and seemed to support the Jubilee purge on Ruto allies.
This development comes as the Uhuru and Raila plan to officially launch the BBI on Monday the 26th of October 2020 at the Bomas of Kenya.
