Just a day after addressing a touching letter to his wife Diana Marua, Bahati is back with a letter to his son Morgan, who was not spared by social media trolls in the recent past.
The EMB boss recounted the first time he met Morgan. The teenager was just two years old and was residing at the orphanage home that he was also raised in.
“That Day when I invited ABC Children’s Home (Where I grew up at) to Come and Perform at my Album Launch in 2013 at NPC Valley Road. Son I remember that day like it was Yesterday; the way you Cried and Called me Daddy. It was so difficult for me seeing the 2 year’s old you forced to enter the bus heading back to the orphanage; I saw your pain and I saw myself through you; Having grown in a Children’s Home at times is Lonely without no one to Call Mum or Dad!” he wrote on social media.
From that day, Bahati decided to take up the role of being Morgan’s father although he was not ready. The singer told his son that he is his dad and nothing will change that. He also prepared Morgan that as he grows up, that he will come across distasteful things.
“Son Listen to me! I am your Father and You’re my Son! God Planned it Nothing can Change that! As You grow you will see a lot of Nonsense and inhuman stuff said on this Ruthless World but always Remember above all… I’M YOUR FATHER AND YOU ARE MY SON. PERIOD!” he said.
Bahati added that he has been through a lot with the teenager, including being dumped by women because of him.
“Do you remember when I could not afford to pay a House help and I could cook for you, clean your clothes and even change your beddings juu ume susu kwa Bed??? 😃 I know you don’t like it when I tell the stories juu Sahii unaenda shule ya Ma Sonko na Madem watakuchongoa🙈,” Bahati said.
“I will not open up about everything but something I’ve never shared with anyone is that even Some Women left me because they were not ready to raise a Child that’s not theirs! Yes it was that bad but look at you now you have the most caring mother on Earth! Mimi nawewe ni watoto Wa Diana,” he added
He concluded by apologising for bringing him top the limelight, something that has seen him being trolled.
“Forgive me for introducing you to the public this young 🙏 But above all I want you to Know that You’re the Best Gift I ever gotten – You’re my First Born and Without you Our Family is incomplete! Always remember You’re Loved and Treasured and I will do whatever I can as the Lord enables me to see all your dreams Come to pass. @MORGAN_BAHATI … YOU’RE A STAR,” Bahati said.
