Willy Paul has become one of the most controversial yet popular gospel artistes in the country.
Despite his scandals and controversy-filled life, the Fanya hitmaker is one of the most celebrated singers amongst the youth with most of his songs getting positive feedback from the young fans.
Willy Paul real name, Wilson Abubakar Radido, has worked hard to become one of the biggest artistes in the Kenyan showbiz industry, despite coming from a poverty-stricken background in the heart of Mathare slums.
Though he has a successful music career, Willy Paul has faced a lot of controversies, including; asking for nude photos and videos from lasses, getting his ex-girlfriend pregnant then dumping her, and even drinking alcohol. He has vehemently denied these allegations.
Willy Paul is also known for his long standing beef with fellow singer Bahati, real name Kevin Kioko. The two initially started off as friends but later on, became the worst of enemies as Bahati accused Willy Paul of stealing his songs and releasing them without due credit.
The two would later on reconcile after realizing that their beef was negatively affecting their music after they were left out of Groove awards 2016 nominations. They even shared a photo while having a meal together joined by Bahati’s adopted kids.
The young gospel artiste recently released a song with celebrated songstress Size 8 dubbed Tiga Wana which has received a lot of criticism from their fans, because it does not convey any Christian message or portray gospel music in a good way.
Size 8 and Willy Paul have however not been apologetic because they maintain that it’s a gospel song which has a different twist and sound. And despite all the negative comments, and criticism the two singers remain steadfast that they are genuine gospel artistes.
Well, I got the chance to talk to Willy Paul about his music, his controversial life and allegations about living a double life.
During the interview, I got to ask the Tam Tam singer when he got saved, his best career moment, if he anticipated the negative publicity after dropping Tiga Wana and also what he thought about the possibility of Sauti Sol being nominated for Groove Awards for their gospel-inspired song, Kuliko Jana.
I also got to ask the celebrated gospel singer about his much-awaited wedding, after he revealed that he was engaged to a beautiful lass who was said to be a Kenyan-Ethiopian, but the big day never came to pass.
So what really happened? Did they break up or are they still dating and if not, is he dating at the moment. To find out answers to these questions, watch the video below as Willy Paul throws shade at his haters.
