You would possibly disagree with me however the two artists without a doubt propelled the industry, most up and coming gospel musicians desired to be like them.

So I experience that their exit would possibly have a poor have an effecting the enterprise and to be honest, this subject that is open to debate.

I understand what you’re thinking, that there are different gospel musicians who are as gifted as Willy Paul and Bahati, possibly even more. The likes of Shortbabaa, Guardian Angel, Pitson, Benachi etc.

But the fact is that none of them has a large following as these two. They used their song and scandals at instances to publicize themselves. I don’t comprehend how or why they do it however it works for them.

In the late 2000s to the early 2010s when gospel song was once large in Kenya, it was once generally due to the fact of these two. The truth that they didn’t like every different made matters even greater interesting.

But now, each of them have exited the gospel industry to do love songs. Willy Paul used to be the first to bounce ship and it didn’t take lengthy earlier than Bahati accompanied suit.
