The youth of Bahati
The Nakupa Moyo hitmaker grew up in a children’s home after losing his mother when he was young.
The entertainer, who is married to Diana Marua, said he didn’t feel offended to be called ‘Mtoto wa Diana’ as his wife gave him the motherly love he had lost.
“I remember when I first started dating @Diana_marua, I said to her once, baby, ‘I wish you could love me like my mother. It’s because I grew up in a children’s home, and as an orphan, I always wished I had someone to call mom. No matter the age, everyone always yearns for a mother’s love.
And so these days, when ‘they’ call me Mtoto wa Diana, I don’t take offense because this girl here is still the closest type of love I’ve had with my mom.” he wrote on his social media pages in February 2021.
