Kenya gospel badboy Willy Paul has always had a thing or two to write home about, mostly in bad light. The ‘Take it Slow’ crooner recently became the internet sensation after word had it that he was ditching gospel for secular because it had became way tougher to go International as a Kenyan gospel artiste. To fire up his move, he even had arrangements for a collabo with Nigeria’s heartthrob Tecno.
As swift as he could be, Willy Paul recorded part of the song dubbed ‘Kataa’ with an inspirational feeling to it and sent it to Naija for Tecno’s input. Unfortunately Tecno and his management turned down Willy Paul’s deal in the eleventh hour because they felt that Willy Paul was being too much desperate and that his sound did not match with that of Tecno.
The label (name withheld) which made it possible for the ‘botched’ Willy Paul/Tecno collabo then hooked up Willy Paul with Iyanya since they felt that their music sounds almost the same. However when Willy Paul received the news, he was bitter and turned down the offer saying that he is already a big name in Kenya and wants to only work with big names from Nigeria and he doesn’t feel like Iyanya is one of them.
