Willy Paul shares a special message for Commander-in-Chief President Uhuru

Controversial star Willy Paul has a few words for President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The ‘Bye Bye’ singer started off the week with a special message, thanking President Kenyatta for his work in helping keep Kenyans safe in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic on the Gram. He said, ” Dear Mr president, my president. First and foremost I’d like to congratulate you for the good work that you’ve done so far n you’re still doing. Especially in this time of #corona

Pozzee, Saldido International Records CEO went on to point out that the economy has undoubtedly been affected by the pandemic. And more importantly according to Paul, the music industry has been seriously hit. He noted, “The entertainment scene has been hit badly and sadly no one seems to care about whatever is happening to us… Mr. president, most of us depend on shows, gigs n etc as we all know that our Board of Music has been having issues with the artists. They’ve been stealing from us…from ring-back tones to every other thing… most of us depend on music for everything Mr. President. We have families that look up to us… right now we’re all home, not making any money.”

Dear Mr president, my president. First and foremost I’d like to congratulate you for the good work that you’ve done so far n ur still doing. Especially in this time of #corona My president I have an issue. The entertainment scene has been hit badly and sadly no one seems to care about whatever is happening to us… entertainers from other countries e.g musicians, actors , producers, directors and comedians are getting help from their governments.. and here no one is even saying a word. The other day you had a press conference and all of us expected to hear our president’s thought on the entertainment scene. Unfortunately you did not mention a thing. Mr president, most of us depend on shows, gigs n e.t.c as we all know that our board of music has been having issues with the artists. They’ve been stealing from us.. from ringback tones to every other thing.. most of us depend on music for everything Mr President. We have families that look upto us.. right now we’re all home, not making any money…. ….Dear Mr President, I’m just speaking from a musical perspective, if an established musician can feel the pinch like me, what about the uprising who only makes 5000 shillings per gig and they still have to pay rent and feed their families? What about the common #mwananchi who’s only hope is on mjengo, juakali, watchmen, mama mboga??? Mr President, I know ur a fan of Kenyan music, Kenyan content , Kenyans and you love your people.PLEASE REMEMBER US IN THIS DARK MOMENT.

The economic effects of the coronavirus are significant and have already changed the lifestyles of many who are forced to stay home.

The government issued an advisory urging all Kenyans to practice social distancing and for those who can work from home to do so. With very little movement, and the banning of gatherings for more than 10 people, Willy Paul’s concerns are valid. His message to the Commander in Chief was met with some support in the music industry.

Joe Muchiri wrote, ” uyu mzae hajali Hata ile 7 billion alipewa na Central Bank we have not seen it do anything substantial, kazi ni ma useless press conference instead of giving mwananchi money to survive wana ngoja Corona iishe waibe we are in such a messed up country.”

Another commented, ” I think this is petty, too petty, thank God you have all stock of foods, drinks and tissues prepared for Corona pandemic…we have people who need hell then you…for Music, ngoja tumalizane na Corona kwanza learn to have priorities…”

It seems that his point of view only raises alarm and does nothing to help solve the problem. Willy Paul could do better to provide some solutions considering his knowledge of the industry.

Over the weekend, Pozzee also went on to troll Bahati for his latest collaboration with Akothee ‘Nakupa Moyo’. Adding insult to injury, he went on to chastise Bahati for his vocal abilities. He went on to claim that his wife Diana could have done a better job. He said, “Saidia Bwana yako pia. Unataka ulishwe ulishwe, Bwana anapoteza vokoda.”

The special message to President Kenyatta, may just be another stunt to remain in the headlines for the ‘Banana’ crooner. Pozze should come up with some solutions and actionable steps, that help other artists during this time of hardship.
