He is one of the most controversial and most decorated gospel artists in the country. He is always in the lime light for all the wrong and weird reasons since he stepped in the game back in 2011.
From wearing questionable accessories and outfits, out-of-this-world hair dos, denying his own mother, copying other artists tunes, beefing with fellow ‘brothers’ and terrorising the ‘sisters-in-christ'(remember Pendo of Nairobi diaries? SMH)
Every time his shit hits the fan, he is quick to absolve himself calling it the devil’s scheme out to tarnish his ministry he has painstakingly built over the years. But right now he does not give a hoot about all of that and is focused on his maturity and the good vibe.
This year he missed out on the Groove Awards nominations sponsored by Safaricom which are deemed as the epitome of the gospel industry. He and his fellow Bahati were snubbed following their continued bickering which has potrayed the gospel industry in negative light casting a shadow on the once celebrated music genre.
Speaking on the Grapevine show on KBC Channel 1, Willy called the snub a blessing in disguise as it will give other upcoming artists a platform and will leave him with more room and time to engage in his new projects. Hot with his new collabo with Sauti Sol, he added that he wanted to spread the word to a bigger audience outside the country too so it did not matter whether they were non-gospel musicians.
He hinted about his future plans and collaborations stating that Sauti Sol are the last musicians he will ever collaborate with in the country. He already has layed down networks in Tanzania, Nigeria, Ghana and other suprise countries.
We await the new works from the self-proclaimed King of gospel and wish him nothing but the best.
