Gospel star Jimmy Gait is no longer interested in showbiz, he says
The ‘Muhadhara’ hitmaker says he is focused on helping people through his Agency which links people to jobs in the US, Middle East, Canada and the UK.

Jimmy Gait is aiming at creating 10,000 jobs as a legacy which is why he has gone slow on music.

“I am no longer impressed by celebrity status. I want to be celebrated because of my impact and not the clout around me. I am not interested in showbiz, People only care that you care about them,” he told Mpasho.

His new venture teamed up with agencies abroad and it has been a success story.

“Everyone goes through many phases in life that is what am very passionate about now. I thought of what I can do to help people get good jobs, so I teamed up with good agencies abroad, where we are able to get people good jobs. My vision in the next 2 years is to create 10,000 jobs and success stories,” he said.

The singer said he wanted to end the suffering of Kenyans in the Middle East who are bound to suffering by rogue agents.

He is aware that he operates in an industry where his predecessors thrive on lies and fraud but his business seeks to change all that.

“So I thought of setting up a system that people can trust. It gives me satisfaction to help families. When they are on the other side and call to thank me, I feel good.”
