Former gospel singer Willy Paul has been feeling the pressure from the current lock down due to the Coronavirus pandemic taking over planet earth!
So far artists like him can not afford to hold any gigs to perform from their fans since this is prohibited due to the rising virus that has left many dead. As for now people around the world continue to practice social distancing just to be safer side!
Letter to Mr President
With this, most people have been left jobless; an issue that has now pushed Willy Pozee to write Mr President a letter asking him to step in and help!
In his letter Willy Paul went on to remind the president that some people like himself have lost their jobs; and unlike before cannot afford to feed their families since their jobs are currently on a stand still!
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.
We need help Mr President
Willy Pozee went on to add that even with the press conference Mr President has been holding; Uhuru has not addressed any issue concerning artists in the country and how they will survive now that their jobs have been banned.
Pozee wrote saying;
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…. ….
In conclusion Willy Paul reminded Mr president not to sideline artists; since he already knew that the president loves and supports music. Willy Paul lastly finished by saying;
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???
