Willy Paul’s latest single dubbed “I Do” featuring Jamaican reggae singer Alaine has broken the Kenyan YouTube record for amassing the most views in one day.
By press time, the song was trending at number 1 on the video sharing platform and it had been watched 196,000 times in 22 hours, just 4,000 views shy of the 200,000 mark.
Meanwhile, “Kumbe Kumbe” a song which was released by his nemesis Bahati and Mr Seed is at 126,000 views – never mind the fact that it was released more two weeks ago.
Willy Paul, who reffered to himself as the “King of YouTube Views” in a past interview, has a tendency of releasing a new song after Bahati.
In November last year, he debuted “Tiga Wana” featuring Size 8 exactly a week after Bahati released “Maria”.
As it stands, “Tiga Wana” has amassed over a million views on YouTube while “Maria” is still struggling at 242,000 views.
In a previous interview with Mpasho, we asked Pozze why he has always débuts his songs after Bahati and he said that he waits for God to direct him.
Here’s the interview.
