Wilson Abubakar Radido popularly known as Willy Paul is an award-winning Kenyan contemporary christian musician and songwriter.
He was plunged into stardom with the hit single “Sitolia” featuring Gloria Muliro which was a success, although Willy Paul claims that he did not earn much from the song because Gloria Muliro allegedly owned exclusive copyrights to the song.
In December 2013, Willy Paul launched his debut album which had songs like “You never know”, “Lala Salama”, “Mpenzi” and “Kitanzi” at the KICC graced by notable musicians including Daddy Owen, Ben Githae, Gloria Muliro, DK Kwenye Beat, Men Of God (MOG), Size 8 and Mr Seed.
The talented Willy Paul soon found himself in controversy after his rival musician in the Gospel industry, Bahati, accused him of stealing his song. This saw Bahati’s fans pounce on Willy Paul with harsh criticism over the social media, accusations he denied to have committed.
Willy Paul and Bahati made their reconciliation during the 10th annual Groove Awards Nominations in April 2015. Willy Paul also went on to scoop several awards nominations with his hit song “Tam Tam”.
Over the years of his career, Willy Paul has carved his niche and earned several awards including the Groove Award Artist of the year in 2012. The soulful single “Imani” has us reaffirming our faith to the faithful Yahweh.
