Willy Paul is full of antics, and now his need for attention has seen him address what many would term as a ‘private matter’ on social media.
The ‘Harambee’ crooner took to his Instagram account to pick a bone with his friend and world-renowned songstress Alaine. The duo who have previously collaborated on the chart-topper ‘I Do,’ seemed friendly when Alaine visited Nairobi early June for the Tomorrow Leader’s Festival. Based on their banter and body language from the post on social media, the duo seemed to be best of friends. The two even did an interview together for Jamaica’s Onstage Tv.

‘Music makes us dance into our greatness’. @onstagetv was in Kenya and interviewed @willy.paul.msafi and I. Go to YouTube to see the interview 😁.. Winford asked me what my message to the youth is.. this is what I said.. #OfAfricanDescent #Proud #NoJudgement #Nobodyisperfect #MusicUnitesUs #Message #OvercomeChallengeswithPositivity
But, it seems that Willy Paul is not quite sure where he stands with the Caribean beauty. According to his post on Instagram, the ‘Hallelujah’ crooner is disappointed with the state of their friendship. He wrote, ” Alaine, we were so good together dear, to be honest meeting you was the best thing ever coz it was like a dream come true.. when u see a man admitting to such, that’ means something big.” He goes on to point out that the dynamics of their relationship have changed, and it is distressing to him. In the long post he goes on to express himself saying, “I woke up today feeling some type of way, you use to like my pics and comment on them.. nowadays I call you and you don’t pick.. you don’t even reply to my messages.. tell me have I wronged you in any way? No, I don’t think so, as I said, I had so much hope in this.. you came to Kenya the other day n didn’t bother looking for me, I was forced to look for you.. what happened after that?? You blocked me…But I’m glad you like one of my posts the other day.. maybe that’s a sign.”
The Gospel turned secular artist goes on to point out his highly publicised relationship with Nandy should not intimidate Alaine. He writes, “Plus one more thing, there’s a female artist from Tanzania by the name Nandy. Me and her are just friends…. nothing more… that shouldn’t even worry you dear..” Justifying his public rant, Pozzee explains, “I’m writing this here is for the world to at least help me get this message to you..”

Alaine, we were so good together dear, to be honest meeting you was the best thing ever coz it was like a dream come true.. when u see a man admitting to such, that' means something big. I woke up today feeling some type of way, you use to like my pics and comment on them.. nowadays I call you and you dont pick.. you dont even reply to my messages.. tell me have I wronged you in anyway? No I dont think so, like I said, i had so much hope in this.. you came to Kenya the other day n didn't bother looking for me, I was forced to look for you.. what happened after that?? You blocked me.. mmmmh the reason I'm writing this here is for the world to atleast help me get this message to you.. my mum keeps asking me where you disappeared to. But I'm glad you like one of my posts the other day.. maybe that's a sign. Plus one more thing, there's a female artist from Tanzania by the name Nandy. Me and her are just friends…. nothing more… that shouldn't even worry you dear.. Madam boss please talk, unblock me, this silence is killing POZZE, you know who ur legit king is.. Help me fam.. get this message to her @alainesinga
Reacting to the long, emotional post, Kenyans on Instagram have given their two cents on the matter, and Pozze may not like what they have to say. One commented, “Pozze atatumaliza na mambo😂😂😂😂hatujapumua kuona Vera in black na ye pia ameanza.” Another pointed out that the Instagram post was a desperate attempt by Willy Pozze to reclaim a friendship that may have already run its course. One commentator said, “Una umama,,,waona ukitaja mamako utahurumiwa.”
Though it is not clear what sort of relationship, friendship or otherwise that Willy was looking for with Alaine, her move from secular to gospel music and his from gospel to secular music could be among the many reasons she has distanced herself. One commenter even pointed out “She found Christ.”
Social media is not in any way a means to hold a private conversation, this is something that Willy Paul may have totally forgotten. Do you agree?
