Willy Paul: No, I did not insult anyone on WhatsApp
Gospel singer Willy Paul has disowned a WhatsApp parody account which he blames on people who are out to tarnish his name.
A screenshot of a conversation between a WhatsApp user alleging to be Willy Paul and another user by the name Ashnaam, captures the singer hurling insults at the latter for asking him to produce gospel songs that “speak to the listener’s soul”.
Due to the vulgar language used in the conversation Nairobi News cannot publish the text.
However, the Tiga Wana hit maker said it is all a lie, and blames the whole scheme on his haters.
“Why would someone even do this to me?? This has just come to my attention. Just because I’ve managed to stay without scandals someone somewhere is not happy!! What wrong have I done?? Someone has opened an account with my name and made all these up? You can all see that this is a lie… with the brains I have, why would I abuse someone like this?” wrote Willy Paul.
“The first question I would ask myself is what if they screenshot? This is a big lie and whoever you are God will deal with you. Please handle your issues and leave me alone! I forgive you.”
This comes as the debate on the substance of gospel music by local artistes continues on social media.
