Initially Tam Tam was done by Willy Paul, Dk Kwenye Beat and Elijah Prince while still under the wings of System Unit. Willy Paul later decided to make good off the song by doing a remix with Size 8 which was the 1st collabo of Size 8 since moving to gospel music.

Size 8 and Willy Paul jokingly decided to enter the recording booth at Jumbo Sounds where super producer Teddy B was working before starting his own brand, Signature scope.

Months later after release, Tam tam became a national anthem when it comes to weddings around Kenya as it not only incorporated gospel deejays who were married but mentioned celebrated politicians in Kenya.

In a note Willy Paul thanked GOD and his fans who have kept following him :

“God’s grace is sufficient.. A year ago God made me the first East African gospel artist to hit 1,000,000 (1million) views on YouTube with the song sitolia.. And now He’s done it again… In a much bigger way.. I want to thank everyone for always supporting me… I love you.. Without forgetting my mama Gloria Muliro and my sister Size 8. Without their support Sijui ningekuwa wapi. They believed in me even when the worse was being said about me.. Asanteni…. They mean a lot to me.. So before I release a unity song today… Just know that I appreciate you all”

“It’s high time we artists start helping other young talents” Willy Paul

Award-winning gospel singer Willy Paul has decided that this year will be an year of giving back to all the people who are talented but lack funds to achieve their dreams.

The singer has officially launched his organisation dubbed “Make Someone Smile” which will be sponsoring the audio track for all the talented musicians.

Willy Paul feels that it is important for artists to give back to the society and thus the reason for him starting his initiative.

He captioned this yesterday morning:

“it’s another day that the most high God has granted us for free. I think it’s high time we artists start helping other young talents.. we have a lot of talents being wasted, young children joining bad gangs because there’s no one to show them the way or to hold their hand and support the talent in them.. let’s not be selfish.. we are always on TV it’s time we help others… and now me being a former slum boy… I take this opportunity to help the talented. .. if you are talented and believe you can sing.. Kindly let me know. … drop your number and my team will get back to you .. my organization MAKE SOMEONE SMILE is sponsoring one audio track for every talented person. .. but first send us a voice note of you singing….. on whatsapp …. +2547988266 God bless you… it’s a bout God”

This has happened to christian singer Willy Paul who has gone to social media to alert his fans that there are people who use his name to con others to pay them money.

Willy Paul who re-branded himself to Willy Paul Msafi has stated that there are other accounts on social media that use the name Willy Paul Msafi not for the purpose of spreading the word of GOD but to con followers to pay them money.

“Morning family, have you given God thanks for letting you see this day?? I hope so coz I have… anyway, am here to bring to your attention that this is my only original account.”

Willy Paul reiterated that what the fake accounts are doing is not right before the eyes of GOD and pleaded with his fans to report them if they come across one.

“I Had ONE Sunday Best Trouser And Was Torn In The Back” : Willy Paul’s Touching Message On GOD’s POWER

When GOD decides to walk in your life, then that’s when you realize that your life is not yours but it’s all about HIM. Gospel artiste Willy Paul reminded his followers about the power of GOD and how great his might is upon the lives of his children. Willy Paul’s message was inspired by his past life where he shared on how his life was not easy having been brought up in a slum and with limited basic needs to cater for his personal effects.

willy teddy b groove post

Willy Paul revealed that at one time he had only one Sunday best trouser which was torn on the back proving that GOD can move one person from nothing to something.

My family please surrender your lives to the most high God.. believe me he will change your lifestyle… and will always cover you… I am a living testimony. . I came from nothing to something. . I didn’t have anything to wear… use to wear very old sandals of different colors.. Red on the left leg and blue on the right leg.. I had only one Sunday best short trouser that had a hole at the back… but God changed all that the moment I fully dedicated my life to him… try God today and experience the CHANGE…

Willy Paul also shared about his dream as a christian artiste where he aims to grow his ministry internationally and reach out to every soul that is yearning for GOD’s word.

“I want my ministry to expand internationally and reach every struggling soul around the world.. I want the music I sing to win more souls into the kingdom of God and less awards… The Lord has given me a challenge that requires full dedication to him” Willy Paul stated.

WILLY PAUL : I Thought I Should Have Won Groove Awards But GOD Had Other Plans

Award winning christian artiste Willy Paul, on a humble note celebrated every winner who bagged an award at Groove Awards 2015 and urged for continuance of the spirit of ministry and unity.

With many of his fans awaiting for him to win at least one award, Willy Paul reiterated that though he is human and would have liked to win it was important to let GOD’s will be done before his own preferences.

Willy Paul’s song with Size 8 called Tam Tam had over a million views and still failed to win any award while Bahati’s song Barua scooped 3 awards with the fourth award crowning him as the best male artiste of the year in 2015. Though it would have been nice for Willy Paul to scoop an award for his hard work Willy Paul promoted the heart ministry rather than competition and love for self.

I Love You BRO : WILLY PAUL And BAHATI Prayed For And HUG Each Other In Public [IN PICTURES]

After the numerous accusations during this last month it seems Bahati and Willy Paul will now bury the hatchet that was fueled by a Facebook post that accused another of copyright infringement.  The two artistes reconciled yesterday night at Groove Awards nomination night where they were prayed for and even shared a hug while in the presence of thousands that had gathered at Arboretum grounds.

The Pastor from CITAM called them upfront and while standing in between them he prayed for them while asking others to join him to pray for the two. Bahati who had won a hood removed the head cap and bowed his head while Willy Paul closed his eyes standing in Faith.

hug willy

After the prayer it was all smiles as Mc Jessy decided to take it the old school way by telling them to kneel down as he removed his belt to try and weep them. Laughing out though this was a great moment to see where a message was passed across that Bahati and Willy Paul are just young christian artistes who are going through challenges and without mentor-ship they can react in a bad way.

EXCLUSIVE : ”Willy Paul Has NOT Responded To BAHATI As The Video Was Shot A Year Ago”

From when this story blew out we decided not to write anything about it but after another clip came out that Willy Paul was ‘mocking’ Bahati in a video recorded a year ago we had to clear the air.



First of all its very sad to even talk about this issue in public but the producer who shot the video has called us to help him clear his name as the video was just a joke.

For the record I have seen most gospel artistes joke about their songs when at backstage, so we should not be attacking Willy Paul for this act. The video was shot in 2014 when Willy Paul was recording Kitanzi video with Gloria Muliro and Arnold Kiddy the video director was part of the team doing behind the scenes video.

willy paul dancing

The video was not done out of malice as it was just a joke. The sad thing is that it was re-uploaded at the wrong time.

Speaking to uliza links the video director says :

“Am Arnold kiddy .am a video producer.. I have shot a lot of behind the scenes of many music video including Machozi of Bahati, ti mundu of Mr seed etc.

I currently work with Kenya Television service as a TV producer  and i do produce several programs including Home Hits show that support local talent.

I was part of the crew that shot kitanzi of willy paul and gloria. It was fun with a lot of jokes. During the shoot Willy Paul had a lot of jokes and one of the joke was singing bahati song machozi. Bahati saw it and he never had a problem with it as it was not shot with bad intention.

I did upload it as part of behind the scenein the year 2014 but suddenly the video has spread with my name on it which has made me to be responsible for it.

I would like all people to know that, the video was not done with malice intention.”

With this said it would be better that this matter is closed.

I Write This As A Big Brother : Eric Omondi Pens An Advice To Willy Paul And Bahati

Once Bahati posted the open letter online accusing Willy Paul of ‘stealing’ his songs many artistes have shared their thoughts on this issue with others taking one side or the other. Comedian Eric Omondi who rose to fame on the top tv program Churchill Show, shared his thoughts too but rather than taking sides he pleaded with the two artistes to reconcile and stop picking a bone with each other.

erick omondi twin post

In a letter tagged to uliza links on instagram Eric Omondi shared what he felt was mean’t to be right and which way should be taken according to GOD’s word.

He said :

I BESEECH YOU BROTHERS…. I write as a big brother, as believer in the Faith, in the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.



If No one will preach to you Bahati and Willy Paul, then I, A comedian WILL. Now listen carefully brethren. The BIBLE is Clear and LOUD Ephesians 4:26 Do not be ANGRY do not Sin; do not let the Sun go Down on your Anger. Our Lord and Savior CHRIST JESUS whom you so profoundly proclaim said and I quote “

I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven…But now you must put them all away : Anger, Wrath, Mallice, Slander, and Obscene talk…If your brother has something against you, leave your gift before the altar and go and FIRST be RECONCILED TO him then come and offer your gift. We are the SALT to this world, the LIGHT that is so much needed in darkness.

I Command you therefore my brothers by the LOVE of GOD BE RECONCILED TO one another so that your offering maybe be acceptable before HIM

“The Route We Are Taking As Gospel Ministers Is Unacceptable” : Worship Singer Speaks Of Bahati And Willy Paul

The statement of Bahati accusing Willy Paul in public was wrong to some extent but probably Bahati had reached a point where Willy Paul had pushed him too far ? At the end of the day he shouldn’t have put in public as he did as he is called and everything he does it’s not about him or Willy Paul as they are both servants.

vivky kitonga album launch 1

Renown worship and praise singer Vicky Kitonga has spoke about how she felt when she saw the letter and has stated that as gospel ministers we are going the wrong way. She felt that the two artistes have handled this matter carnally but not spiritually.

She stated :

 Music Ministry or should I call it Gospel Music is just a fraction of Christian living. They need to read Acts 2 : 42-47 and see what is expected of them if they are part of the church. When you lack authority over your life , you become carnal . Using Media to fight is cowardice from my point of view.

bahati willy post

She feels that as a child in the christian ministry Bahati and Willy Paul should have asked for the advice of mentors in the gospel ministry. But where are they she asked ?


“The Bible says when someone has wronged you , you should go to them and if it does not work call the Elders. We who have been in this industry for so long n may not necessarily have big names are still relevant and ready to offer guidance but where are they to be mentored? The route we are taking as Gospel Ministers is unacceptable…..May God have mercy on us…..”, Vicky Kitonga responded to Billy Frank’s call to artistes.

At this point where we are it’s sad but this is a wake up call to the stake holders of the gospel to work out on the issues between the two artistes and many others that have not been revealed.

‘IT HURTS To See This’ : Producer Billy Frank Speaks About The ‘BEEF’ Between Willy Paul And Bahati

Yesterday the letter of gospel artiste Bahati caught many of us by the mouth as we didn’t see that coming on even had the thought of thinking that we would see an artiste clearing the air in public. Probably it was the only option left for Bahati but what is the deeper impact of this public letter ? Does it build or destroy ?

bahati willy 1

Award winning producer Billy Frank who sang some the most amazing worship songs till date including Nguvu Ya Msalaba , Umeniweza among others is very hurt to see what is happening between the people who are seen to be the light among the thousand of followers who follow them.

It’s hurts to see a fellow gospel artist writing to clear the air with a fellow gospel artist that tells you the magnitude of things-for a fellow gospel artists to fight me it simple means they absolutely don’t understand who they are leave alone who they are serving-but let me say this.

I love music that exalts the Lord Jesus Christ. But my true love for Gospel Music has broken my heart.
I am grieved by the excessive commercialism of contemporary Gospel Music in the Kenya industry I can cite various examples of this illicit love affair with the world. But there is an explicit seduction of the world on Gospel artists that burdens me.

Of course, We have become so obsessed with our own images and fame and money rather than promoting the name, message, kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Please to tell us you are doing this to expand the influence of Christ in culture. If that’s what you think, you are extremely confused. Deceived. Out of touch with “reality”It is easier for the world to pull you down than for you to pull the world up. And in leaning over to reach the world, we often falls in. And we are dragging the precious name of Jesus down with us.

Where did we get the idea that Christ wants us to help him be relevant in this God-ignoring society? The Lord commands us to be holy, faithful, obedient, wise, and loving. The Lord does not want us to show the world that we are regular people just like everyone else. The world already knows that! That’s why they don’t respect the us.We need to be different. Light. Salt. Our influence in the world happens by the difference Christ makes in our lives, not by blending in. The world cannot see our good works and glorify the Father in heaven by watching us divas ,argue, boast, covet,lust, and complain on TV. Get real!
Not only are Gospel artists fallen in love with the world
As I listen to the new Gospel Music released, I am blown away by how talented Gospel artists are. The music, singing, and production can rival anything “secular” project. Unfortunately, I am hearing more thoughtful reflection in some Pop and R&B music than among those who claim to sing for the glory of God.
I listen to a lot of Gospel Music. But I can commend very little of it for worship, private or corporate. Too much Gospel Music has too little gospel in it. It is not God exalting, Christ focused, or biblically saturated. It is fixated with self and market oriented and fame -what we call making a hits and winning awards.
We need music that teaches truth (Col. 3:16), not just cherry-picks phrases that sound good. We need Gospel Music that proclaims the gospel! We need reverent, bible-rooted music that will lead worshipers to think deeply about Christ. We need musicians to record music that will lead us to sing to the glory of God, not just cheer-lead to get an emotional response.
Kenya Gospel artists, please wake up! We are in a storm. And you are playing the Jonah, sleeping your way to Tarshish when you should be headed to Nineveh. The church – and the world – needs you to wake up and give up music about the true and living God

NOMA, YANI KALI : Willy Paul’s New Song ‘Vigelegele’ Is Too Far From THE GOSPEL, Your Thoughts ?

We need your thoughts on this topic of Willy Paul’s new song Vigelegele.

msafi noma post

The song is his new release after he did Mamangu which he dedicated to his mother. Love him or hate him Willy Paul is talented but this new song has just gone too far from the gospel?

Willy Paul started well in his song called Rabuka, then went to You Never Know then somewhere along the way he might have lost his way in Missi, Mamangu and now Vigelegele.

  1. The song was launched just days after Bahati launched his new song Lover and it seems this song was released in a hurry. There was little time to work on the lyrics as you could feel that the artiste probably jumped into the booth to compose the song with little time given to work on the content

  2. The beat is from a secular song. [No need to state the song].

  3. The lyrics are targeted to the listener to enjoy the song. As stated “Ngoma Noma, Yaani Kali”. Little attention is given to listener who might need hope in JESUS. ?

  4. Why couldn’t the producer advice him on the song ?

  5. The song is good and can be played by many radio stations ?

  6. Does this prove that most artistes need spiritual mentors ?

Don’t forget to pray for most gospel artistes they go through challenges in life.

Share your thoughts.
