Kenyan musician Willy Paul has announced his upcoming Australian tour dubbed 'Jamhuri.'

Through his official Instagram page, the artiste unveiled the tour's schedule noting that it is set to kickoff on December 2.

"Australia 🇦🇺 my International Family, Your Boy Willy Paul Is Coming Over In a Big Way. Please Get Your Tickets Now Ticket Link In My Bio. Come With Your Whole Clan, please," he wrote.

First tour outside Kenya

The singer's first tour outside Kenya was when he was still a gospel artiste.

The US tour was organized by Talanta Awards and churches from different states and was set for March 8, 2020.

The musician recently spoke about the gospel music industry, labelling it as a "dirty game" and a "big scam."

Willy Paul expressed his relief at no longer being part of the gospel music scene and hinted that things are about to heat up, without specifying further.

"Kenyan Gospel is a dirty game, big scam! Thank God I'm not part of it. It's about to get hot," he stated.

Willy Paul's Music Career

Willy Paul's journey in the gospel music scene began with his hit 'Rabuka' and his major breakthrough came in 2010.

One of his most significant collaborations with Gloria Muliro on the single 'Sitolia' which reflected his life struggles and newfound hope in God, propelling him to the limelight.

The artiste's first album, 'You Never Know', was launched in December 2013 at KICC, graced by various gospel music stars. The album featured songs such as 'You Never Know', 'Lala Salama', 'Mpenzi', and 'Kitanzi'.

Willy Paul's hit 'Tam Tam' featuring Size 8 earned him two Mdundo Awards for Most Downloaded Gospel Artist and Most Downloaded Male Single.

The song garnered him four nominations, including Collabo of the Year, Video of the Year, Song of the Year, and Male Artist of the Year.

The musician, who gained fame with his gospel hits, faced constant accusations of secularism, leading him to halt the release of gospel songs altogether.
