Ben Githae, a staunch supporter of President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Jubilee government, has said that he will support the presidential candidate backed by Uhuru ahead of the 2022 elections.
The Tano Tena singer, who has been for publicly chastised for campaigning for Uhuru,says he owes no apology to those who disagree with him, and that his decisions are guided by a clear conscience.
"After I was pictured with ODM leader Raila Odinga and billionaire SK Macharia the other day,some Kenyans ridiculed me. Some were claiming that I had switched my support to 'Baba,' but they were unaware of the context of our meeting," he explained.
"I am used to trolls now. I have grown accustomed to the idea that I could be trolled at any time and possibly become a trending subject for negative reasons, so it no longer bothers me," Githae added.
Githae noted that his meeting with Raila, as well as other artists, including Sir James, was part of their ongoing fight for musicians' rights, particularly on the topic of Skiza revenue split.
"I am not saying I won't vote for Raila. Because I am a strong fan of Uhuru, I will back Raila if he says so," the musician further addee.
