In an interview on Mseto East Africa, Bahati accepted the outcome and thanked the Groove awards for the support he received from them. He added that him and the Groove awards management are in good terms ad that it is time he eyed something bigger.
“…..Wajua Msanii akibarikiwa kabla u break out kuna changamoto, ila mimi sichukulii kama changamoto una give thanks for everything, sababu ina maanisha mungu anakutoa kwa Nini fulani anakupeleka kwa nini kubwa zaidi, sababu mimi kama mimi nafkiri nimeshinda groove enough time, nimeshinda song of the year, video of the year, collabo of the year, male artiste, kwa ivyo sahu nafeel na na need growth, nahitaji something bigger sikuwa last year na siku expect kurudi, kitu kubwa ambayo tunafaa kusubiri ni BAHATI aletee BET ama MTV”.
