Gospel has taken off recently, seeing secular music listeners intrigued by the awesome beats that are being used to praise God. Especially the Kenyan Gospel market has grown in leaps and bounds, and it doesn't look like it's slowing down with these guys keeping the church on fire.
Willy Paul is arguably the hottest gospel act in Kenya currently. He has churned hit after hit and it did not come as a surprise when he won this year’s ‘Male artist of the year groove awards’. This young versatile musician laces his lyrics with a bongo flavor making him a darling of the wider East African community. His music is currently receiving massive airplay in local radio and TV stations.
His latest song, Sitolia, that he collaboed with the equally talented Gloria Muliro has received over 170,000 hits! Willy Paul unlike his contemporaries took a very short time to penetrate the crowded gospel scene thanks to his originality and experimentation.
