Controversial Kikuyu singer Ben Githae has revealed that he is ready to release a song for ODM leader Raila Odinga ahead of the 2022 election.

Githae, however, maintained that he will do so if President Uhuru Kenyatta endorses Raila. The Benga artist - a staunch Jubilee, and President Uhuru's supporter - noted that he is ready to sing a song for any person the President endorses.

"I am a staunch supporter of Uhuru, if he says I support Raila, I will support him," Githae said.

Speaking on supporting the ODM boss, Githae said that he is not yet a supporter but will do so if he is told by the president.

He defended his recent move to attend Raila's event in Murang'a during the Skiza thanksgiving ceremony. He said that he didn't attend the meeting as Raila's supporter but as a defendant of music artists.

“I saw people trolling me the other day after I was photographed with Raila Odinga. Some claimed that I have moved to support him but, what they didn’t know was the context of our meeting,” he said as reported by a local daily.

The Tano Tena hitmaker further revealed that though he often gets trolled for supporting President Uhuru, he has no apologies for doing so. He said his choice to support the president was guided by a clear conscience.
