The gospel minister’s performance on Saturday, August 6, was interpreted by some as an endorsement of the William Ruto- Rigathi Gachagua ticket.
However, speaking to TUKO.co.ke, Mkubwa insisted that he is politically neutral, and his performance was to preach peace as Kenya heads into the elections on Tuesday, August 9.

When probed on how much he was paid for the performance, Mkubwa, who performed his timeless Mfalme Wa Amani hit, insisted he did not sing for the money.
“I am a servant of God and peace is my message, just like the message in the song I performed. As a servant of God, I would have gone if the opposing political camp called me to their.”
On the payment matter, Mkubwa said:
“I did not take up this event because of money. Natumika sababu ya kesho (I performed for tomorrow’s sake) in the sense that someone might see me performing and later seek my services.”
The singer noted that he would support whoever will emerge victorious in the elections.
“We will pray for whoever wins. Leadership comes from God and I cannot go against His will.
God will still be with whoever will be in the opposition.”
Solomon Mkubwa calls for peaceful elections
Mkubwa expressed gratitude for the opportunity to perform for the entire nation, terming his hit a ‘national song’.
He concluded by urging Kenyans to be peaceful during elections, noting that people will come and go but the country will remain.
“Kenyans are learned and self-aware people. Even the children are singing about peace. Let us avoid any conflicts.
We will all die one day but Kenya will remain.”

Previously speaking to TUKO.co.ke in May, Mkubwa assured fans he was doing great after almost six months without a release.
Mkubwa noted he has been busy ministering in churches and crusades, noting that he had a packed schedule.
He addressed the shift of many gospel artistes to secular, saying that many got into ministry for money.
“No one has money like God, and if you follow His rules, He will bless the work of your hands.”
