Taking to his Instagram page, Willy Paul stated that he deliberately chose not to collaborate with Kenyan artists because, in his opinion, they arent good and kindhearted.

This statement has sparked curiosity and speculation among his followers.

I see people complaining and asking me why my album has no Kenyan acts. Kwani mmesahau vile Kenya kuwa na roho mbaya no the most affordable thing?” Willy Paul wrote on his page.

The Saldido records boss further elaborated that instead of working with local artists, he prefers to collaborate with international talents as he aims to adapt to an international sound. 

He also emphasized that his album is geared towards an international audience, hence the decision to exclusively collaborate with international artists.
