Now a routine, Kenya has scaled to greater heights thanks to its homegrown celebrities. Willy Paul among other top celebrities was the country’s flag bearers in the just concluded Talanta Awards.

The towering gospel artiste scooped the ‘Best Performer’ award, coming just days after he faced harsh criticism from fans on social media.

Noble and prudent as he has always been, he took to Facebook to thank his ‘diaspora fans’ for pushing him up to glory. The post read:

God has done it, am so humbled for this.. after all the challenges i have encountered, God still made me a winner. thank you diaspora for voting for me as the BEST PERFORMER in the TALANTA AWARDS USA, i promise to keep Gods ministry running. this award has fought me a big lesson.. when people fight you a lot, then that means what you are doing is the right thing…
once again, thank you to everybody that took time to vote for me…
