Tabia kama first born wa Judas! Jalang’o explains why Willy Paul has never been selected for Coke Studio Africa

Nearly all relevant musicians in Kenya have been to Coke Studio Africa. But one music heavyweight by the name Willy Paul is yet to make it to Coke Studio.

Coke Studio Africa is a music collaboration show that brings together diverse African music talent to create covers, mashups and even original compositions.

Several collabos have been born from Coke Studio, perhaps the most successful collabo being Diamond Platnumz and Ne-Yo’s ‘Marry You’. The song was recorded in Nairobi when Ne-Yo was in town for Coke Studio.

Several African music heavyweights have been jetting into the country for Coke Studio Africa 2019. Local musicians like Otile Brown, Naiboi, Khaligraph Jones have been selected for Coke Studio 2019.

In a recent engagement amongst artistes, Willy Paul brought up claims that Coke Studio practices favoritism in selecting Kenyan artistes.

Jalang’o was however quick to dismiss Willy Paul’s claim. The comedian explained that Willy Paul’s character was the reason why he is yet to be selected despite his music success.

“Wewe toka huko, ulitajwa, wakasema talent moto lakini tabia kama first born wa Judas! Ukatolewa,” Jalang’o told Willy Paul.

Willy Paul’s rival Bahati was the first gospel artiste to grace Coke Studio Africa, he was in Coke Studio season 4.
