In his new song titled “Maria,” Bahati takes a trip down memory lane remembering his friend Maria. Starting out strong with the blare of the saxophone, Bahati brings his signature sound to his new track. Urging his friend to return to Christ, the song’s lyrics share Bahati’s call to a friend who is lost in the world. The song’s crisp visuals depict a young woman’s struggles with the vices of this world. The lead in the video is said to be Ali Kiba’s former girlfriend Tanzanian beauty Jokate Kidoti.
Though many seem to think the song is similar to the track “Pamela” another track by the gospel crooner, the song could still have many up on their feet. The self-proclaimed”Mama’s Boy” continues to churn out new music, after a few collaborations on the Coke Studio stage. However, this track seems too similar to his previous work which has many asking whether Bahati has any new content to share with his audience.
