Kenya’s most controversial gospel singer, Willy Paul, is no doubt a talented fella, one of the best we have this part of the world.
Almost rivaling his number of hit songs are his controversies, his music journey is characterised by scandals after scandals but no other local gospel musician has ever managed to achieve what he has done. The dude reached a milestone not previously tasted by any other gospel artist.
Willy Paul aka Willy Pozee, some two weeks ago, released his latest gem, a collaborative affair with Jamaican reggae queen Allaine entitled ‘I Do’.
The song which is miles away from being a gospel song, created quite a storm on social media, for obvious reasons. That was all thanks to the the hype Willy Paul created around it prior to its release.
Apart from it being too secular, he used Bahati’s protege Weezdom as a best man in the video, he ruffled some feathers in the process and created the momentum he needed before releasing the song hence its success.
‘I Do’ was uploaded on YouTube on 28th February 2016 and a week later, it had garnered an impressive 1,032,027, so impressive are the numbers, that he is the only local gospel artist to reach such levels.
So, as usual, the singer unleashed on Instagram the heartbreaking news to his sea of haters. He grabbed the opportunity to remind them that he is the hottest thing in the Kenyan gospel scene right now. Whether they like it or not.
He captioned the above image:
“1 million views in one week!!! The song I do Willy paul and @alainesinga has just made history!!! For the first time ever in KENYA. One million views in one week… RECORD BROKEN!!! POZZE!!!” He said..
But still, haters continue to hate saying the singer bought fake views for ‘I Do’.
