The Kenyan entertainment scene has witnessed Wilson Abubakar Radido otherwise known as Willy Paul metamorphose from a local gospel artist to an international secular hitmaker.
Willy Paul’s first few romantic songs raised eyebrows within the Kenyan Christian community but it was his hit track “Hallelujah” which triggered a huge uproar.
The collaboration project with Tanzanian songstress Faustina Charles Mfinanga, popularly known as Nandy was the hottest topic in town with the song’s official video showing the two making some erotic dance moves in bed.
The duo would later spark dating rumours after two back-to-back LIVE steamy performances.
While it looks like they are enjoying the prime of their careers, there is a growing number of Kenyans who suspect the two might be in some illegal business — with money laundering being highly considered.
Last week, suspicions grew even higher after Kenyan radio presenter Felix Odiwour shared a photo with a lengthy caption on Instagram where he showered Willy Paul with strange praises.
In the post, Jalang’o claims that Willy Paul paid him close to half a million just for agreeing to meet with him and that he was now his personal MC after he wrote down his own salary on a cheque.
One might say that this was just a stage-managed flex by two mediocre celebrities desperate for some cheap attention but that’s not all.
On Sunday, news that Nandy bought her photographer a brand new car on his birthday was all over local blogs.
The only people known to splash cash like this are corrupt politicians and cartels trying to clean their dirty money.
The two possess the ability to pull huge crowds in their concerts and it would make every possible sense if someone hired them to do the laundering.
These allegations might seem farfetched but this method of cleaning money has been used numerous times before.
At this point, we can only wait and see how this one turns out.
