Gospel singer Jimmy Gait has come out to defend his long absence from the music industry after Eric Omondi’s outburst
On Sunday, the comedian shared a video ranting about the gospel industry being misused by some artistes.
Eric Omondi said Jimmy Gait who was a bigwig in the gospel industry had shifted from ministering the gospel to sending young women to the Middle Eastern countries where they end up suffering.
“Jimmy Gait left the gospel and is now sending to our young girls to Saudi Arabia where they are dying. You will not succeed, what is it that God called yout to do?” he said.
Upon seeing the video, Jimmy Gait said he had been away for a good reason.
“I have seen the video and being someone who have had an impact on the gospel industry, I am here to speak but not in details,” he said on his Instagram page.
He then promised to release a statement on Thursday evening, although fans are speculating he will release a song.
“In everything remember God is in control and there is nothing to worry.”
Earlier on, he told Nairobi News that he would make a comeback soon.
“I will be back soon. I am in the process and I miss my fans and the industry. It has been a blessing ministering to them and I speak and teach the word a lot despite me not singing. I may be missing out there but I am not missing in the kingdom. I move at the pace of God,” he said.
Jimmy Gait has not been producing music for close to two years.
