Willy Paul, "I wish my dad was alive to see his lookalike grandson"

Singer and songwriter Wilson Abubakar Radido stage name Willy Paul has on Instagram appreciated his musical growth and the far he’s risen with a special message to his father.

In the post, the Jigijigi hit-maker stated that he wishes his father was alive to see him and his son who looks exactly like his grandad.

“Morning, so I've worked myself up to the top. And I'm proud to say I've been named the NUMBER 1, from Nandy to Rayvanny, hit after hit... proving people wrong. When they expect me to go down I switch 10 steps higher! I only wish my dad was alive to see what I've become. To see his son, standing in front of thousands and to see my son that looks exactly like him unfortunately not the colour... I'm sure he'd be so proud... but it's a funny world. Things just happen and we have to learn to live with the harsh realities!! Have you ever lost someone and sometimes you just wish they were around?”, Willy Paul wrote.

Despite denying having a child or a baby mama in previous interviews, the Mmh singer later came clean and went even as far as revealing the face of his baby mama.

Aside from family, Willy Paul recently released a song with Tanzanian singer Nandy, Hallelujah that did not sit well with some of his fans.

Fellow singer Ringtone threatened to sue the singer over the song.
