Kenyan musician Jimmy Gait has made a comeback to the local music scene with a new song, effectively burying any rumours that he was quitting music after undergoing treatment.
The Furi Furi singer dismissed media and grapevine romour mill that he was ditching the industry that propelled him to national fame. His new song is titled Makuu and was launched on his YouTube channel on October 15.
“For them that have been thinking and saying that I’m quitting music, allow me to bring it to your attention that I can’t quit music. After God’s healing, I choose to rededicate my life to Him for more service, more music, more impact and broaden His work in my life,” Gait said.
Gait said his new song is an appreciation to God for giving him another chance in life and career.
“This song is a praise to God for saving me from ending my ministry for Him and the death that was staring at me through cancer. In this regard, the song marks an end to a chapter in my ministry, transitioning to a higher calling,” he said.
However, the award-winning gospel singer seems to have made a complete u-turn considering just last month, he announced that he had shot his last video in India where he was receiving treatment and was marking the beginning of a new chapter in his life which he did not clarify.
“I shot my last video in India after my recovery. This was on the week before I returned to Kenya. I will release my last video on October 1, 2019, and open a new page on my career and calling,” he said at the time.
