When news that veteran Kenyan gospel artiste Jimmy Gait has been ailing for a while went viral, netizens came out with all manner of comments. Some sympathized with him while others thought it’s a publicity stunt.
Through his social media accounts, the Huratiti hit maker disclosed that he has been ailing for a while and he is now required to travel abroad for further medical treatment. He, however, did not disclose the illness he is suffering from. He further asked his fans to pray for him as he goes abroad to seek treatment.
“If you are my fan, if you believe in me, if I have blessed you in any way through my music, speaking or through anything; it’s time for me to seek your support. Say a prayer for me, it will go a long way,” he pleaded.
As you would expect, Kenyans were quick to pour in their sentiments in the comment section of the video posted by Jimmy.
One Grace Nyaga said, “Receive the healing my friend God will bring you back praying for you so don’t worry God is in control.”
While Liz Mbugua prayed “God our father I commit this wonderful soul into your Holy hands. May you touch and heal his body. Lord take over. We believe and trust that everything is going to be okay. In Jesus name, I pray. AMEN.”
However, one Twitter user by the name Gathoni was quick to point out that “If this is a publicity stunt where he’ll come out denying in righteous indignation, then definitely ‘celebs’ have lost it”
On the contrary, fellow veteran and award-winning gospel artiste Daddy Owen joined the increasing number of Kenyans who are now praying for Jimmy Gait’s quick recovery.
Through his Instagram account, Owen said “Praying for my brother @jimmygaitofficial Get well soon. See u on Saturday before you travel to India.”
TV presenter Tracy Wanjiru commented on Owen’s post saying “Get well soon Jimmy .”
Here are some of the comments from Kenyans;
@just Moh “May God see you through…someone actually asked me, kwani Jimmy Gait alienda wapi? May you get well in Jesus name.”
@Dan Em “I’ll be praying for you Bro and I have faith you sure shall recover in Jesus name. God will deliver you from every destruction…. For it is He that healeth all your diseases”
@Esther Muchemi “May the God that I serve remember you at this your point of need. May He remember your good deeds and your faithfulness in serving him. He is not a liar when he says “I am the Lord God who heals all your diseases”, he means exactly that. He will do it for you. I will hold you in prayers. Victory belongs to our God. Receive it in Jesus name.”
