Gospel singer Bahati has closed his record label Eastland's Most Beloved (EMB) Records and revealed a new recording studio. Bahati said the decision is as a result of frustrations in the gospel industry especial from his fellow gospel artists.

"Most gospel artistes have been so jealous of my success," he said.

"Some felt like the artistes I was signing are the ones who were making money for me."

Bahati said his main purpose of opening the label was to promote artistes and that EMB has never been a business.

"I wanted to help someone to be successful so that someday they will be in a position to support themselves, but unfortunately, people have misunderstood that," he said.

He said most of the artistes he took in were later used by other gospel artistes to bring him down.

"After a successful four years in Kenya, I have become one of the most talked-about artists, with the highest hate from people," he said.
"Hate is not bad but what is the need of me receiving hate for other artistes who I'm helping from scratch?"

Closing down the record label implies that he will have to cancel all the contracts with the artists he has signed.

"That is Weezdom, Denno and other new artistes I was to support this year," he said.
