I was offered Sh10m to drop Jesus in my songs, says Jimmy Gait


Gospel singer Jimmy Gait says he was offered Sh10 million to drop ‘Jesus’ in his songs.

Speaking to TV47,  for a couple of years, he did not make any coin from music. What kept him going is the passion and the vision he had.

“There were times I would go hungry. There were times I would perform and the pastors would tell me, ‘God bless you’ thank you for ministering. The most important virtue I have always held on to is hope and determination,” he said.

He recounted meeting foreigners five years ago who wanted to sign him, promising a lot of money.

“The only thing they wanted me to do was more inspirational songs. They did not tell me to leave gospel music but they told me not to mention Jesus in my songs,” he said.

Having done so much research about Illuminati and Freemasons, Jimmy says he knew all was not well.

“As an artiste, you research those things to avoid falling into their traps. They were supposed to do an album for me and would give me a down payment of Sh10 million,” he said.

“They were globally connected and they wanted to share my music across nations. They were talking about the big stations, like Trace,” he said.
