Acheni Wana! Size 8 and Willy Paul tell off critics of their new song (video)
They insisted the song was did have a message and was about telling off the Devil and his lies.
While speaking on to Larry Madowo, the two artists defended their song against criticism that their song was not Gospel. They insisted the song was did have a message and was about telling off the Devil and his lies.
The fact that it was a dance song only helped it be fitting for the younger generation who have long criticized the traditional way of spreading the gospel as too boring.
Willy Paul defended his style of music saying no one should expect him to be singing like older musicians because he is of another generation.
He believes that 5 years in the industry are testament that his songs have an audience and that he is yet to fall despite the endless comments of naysayers and being written off from day one.
However, Kenyans are clearly not buying their excuses even if the artistes insist they do not check and follow comments from detractors.
Commenting on the video of the interview many still felt the artistes are clearly blurring the line between what is gospel and what is secular.
