Gospel singer Willy Paul has once again attracted the wrath of angry social media users, this time for doing something special for his mother.
On Monday, the ‘Take it Slow’ singer took to his Facebook page to post a message for his mother, which was accompanied with a pricey gift in the form of an iPhone 6.
“Mum, I know much has been said, much has happened.. But ur still my mum and I’m still your son.. And it will remain that way forever.. I was roaming around Dallas Texas Mall, and I saw this iPhone 6 and it caught my attention.. And so this one is for you mum.. Pokea hii kidogo.. Mungu akiongeza ata iPhone 15 nitakupa.. I love you mum.. Hope unajua kuitumia..,” He wrote.

However, as sweet as Willy Paul’s gesture was, some fans believed that he was just showing off. Others advised him to take his mother out of Mathare slums first.
Here are some reactions:
