Musician Ole Willy has been accused of being a deadbeat dad to a child he sired out of wedlock.
Ole Willy is a relatively unknown singer based in Eldoret who was introduced in the music industry by veteran singer Daddy Owen and Danco after they collaborated in ‘Hafungi Macho’. He has also released songs such as ‘Khubira Byosi’ featuring Pastor Timothy Kituyi and ‘Maskio Ya Mungu’.
He stands accused of several allegations, including deceiving his baby mama, Lyn, that he was single yet he was married.
Ole Willy is married with two kids.
According to Lyn, Ole Willy has neglected their two-year-old son.
Speaking to the Star, Lyn recalled how they met in a club in Nairobi in 2016 and they soon began dating.
“I met Ole Willy at a city night club back in 2016 and was introduced to him by a mutual friend. We clicked and started dating. In the same year, I gave birth and we kept it on the low. He promised to be sending 5k every month for the child’s upkeep, but he rarely fulfills his promise. At times he sends less or doesn’t send anything at all. In December he sent 2k only,” she said.
She added: “I started digging for information about him to know the kind of man my baby daddy was, only to find out that out that he had a family. He keeps telling me that if I go to court, he will not provide even that 2k. And exposing him will be a waste of time because his fans will shut me up. He has never even bought a pair of socks for his son.”
Lyn, who says that she is struggling to raise the child alone, wants Ole Willy to step up and be a responsible father.
“He keeps telling me that if I go to court, he will not provide even that 2k. And exposing him will be a waste of time because his fans will shut me up. He has never even bought a pair of socks for his son,” said Lyn.
