” Even though I put a stop to my career, I don’t regret running for a political seat I made a move. When we are young we can only take risks right now. I am proud of myself and I believe young people are proud of me too.”

Young, Famous & African is a Netflix original first African reality television series, focused on building careers, looking for love, and rekindling old flames of famous media personalities from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Uganda and Tanzania.

The show follows a group of friends who are African entertainers and A-listers as they go about their lives having fun, flirting and fighting in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The cast of the show includes actress and singer Khanyi Mbau, rapper Nadia Nakai, musician Diamond Platnumz, along with Annie Macaulay-Idibia, 2Baba, Zari the Boss Lady, Naked DJ, Swanky Jerry, Andile Ncube and Kayleigh Schwark.

Bahati is the second Kenyan celebrity to claim that they were approached to be part of the show. Last year rich kid Arnelisa Muigai also claimed that she was supposed to be in the show but she declined the offer.

Netflix which came under fire from Kenyans on why there was no Kenyan on the show explained that it was looking for a group of friends who have a connection to South Africa.

“We didn’t skip any country. We cannot have 50 people on the show so unfortunately, some candidates had to be left behind. We selected a group of connected friends who all have ties to South Africa,” said the Network.

In short Bahati is also lying
