Kenyan musician Willy Paul is the gospel artists many people love to hate on. No matter what he does, people will always find a way to criticize him. Without a doubt, Willy Paul is one of the most talented local artists in the country evidenced by his massive hit songs the latest being Jigi Jigi.
Willy Paul has recently come out to reveal some details about his late father, a person he rarely talks about. He posted on Facebook:
My story is really a story!! I don’t talk about my past because I’m not a sympathy seeker!! I get so hurt when people say hurtful things to me without thinking of the impact After!! I am a very strong young man. The life I lived before; when my late Dad ( Paul ) was still alive….. was beyond umaskini ( poverty)
My dad was a carpenter in the slums of Mathare KENYA But when he died there was no money to buy his body casket!! We didn’t have money to pay for the mortuary.. we were forced to do unbelievable things just to get him a cheap casket of about 4500 kenya shillings!! A casket that even had holes.. .. .. I will tell you more soon when I gather the energy to!
The life I’m living today, only God can tell how appreciative of it I am.
