Gospel singer Peter Blessing has come out to share the current misfortune he is facing.
It is reported that the singer was locked up by fellow gospel singer Bahati whose real name is Kevin Kioko for allegedly going against a 20-year agreement he had signed with EMB Records last year.
Shortly after his release from police custody, where he had spent three days in a row, he took to social media to air out his grievances with the Mama hitmaker.
“Can’t Imagine nlikua cell.But God I know this are signs of my success, Mungu halali mengi mazuri yananisubiri…. Its only God who reply to the deeds the poor are going through. Fake allegations got consequences. God’s Favour,”
“I never Chose to be the way Iam but it’s by God’s grace and He will lift me more and more despite the challenges am going through. HARD TIME WILL ALWAYS REVEAL TRUE FRIENDS. Thank You to those who are with me. I want to thank my MOM too she’s the reason am here and she’s helping me push on,” wrote Blessing on his Instagram page.
The new kid on the block went on to deny charges leveled against him, terming them as utter lies revealing that there was no such deal with the music label, to begin with.
“Nilikuwa nimeandikiwa Obtaining Sh2, 039, 000 ivo, lakini hakuna ukweli kwa hiyo. So nilipata nimeshitakiwa Hivo. So hii ilikuja baada ya kutaka kutoka EMB. Unajua nikiingia EMB nilikuwa na plans zangu na pia God huguide mtu, so nilifeel maybe ni time ya God nitoke EMB, sikuwa na Ubaya hata nawao,”
He added: “Kulikuwa na issues tu mob, unapata wanacall Mom wanamuongelesha tu vibaya, na hiyo ilikuwa inaniuma sana sana, alafu kuna time walisema niende tu home na hata nisirudi, but time nilirudi Nairobi, wao walijam so ikabidi nimeenda ofisi tuonane, but main reason na feel tu God Alikuwa na reason nitoke. Kulikuwa na vitu mingi zilikuwa zinahappen, so kivyangu niliona tu nitoke. But unajua kwa side ya Mom ilimhurt sana, juu yeye anaweza sema anything kama kitu ni wrong. So ukweli itakuja tu kujulikana. So iliniuma sana kuwekwa Cell na ilikuwa mara ya Kwanza.”
However, according to the artist, he had signed a 20-year contract with the label on grounds that they would make him become a big hit, but contrary to belief, he was shortchanged and opted out, a decision that did not sit well with the owners.
“Nilikuwa nimesign contract ya 20 years. So nilikuwa na expectations zangu nikaona wacha tufanye kazi, juu sikuwa nafikiria hata siku moja nitatoka, nilikuwa nataka hata kama nikutoka , nitoke kama niko great kabisa, juu huwezi sema nimekuwa star ndo nitoke, but nimetoka mapema. Nimetoka ndo ni protect dreams zangu na kusaidia familia yangu. So nilikuwa ndani from Thursday to Sunday. Iliniuma mbona mtu ananifanyie hivi, but nikaambia Mungu nisaidie.”
He was arrested alongside former EMB records Producer Paulo.
