Celebrated Kenyan artist Willy Paul has dropped his much-awaited ‘Songs of Solomon’ album.
‘Songs of Solomon’ is his debut album and has nine songs namely; ‘Kidogo’, ‘Nikumbate’, Something’, ‘Tired’ (featuring Miss P, Shappaman and Taio), ‘Collabo’, ‘Nye’(featuring Mejja), Nomare (featuring Juliani), ‘Solomon’ and ‘Nimelewa’.
In his first jam ‘Kidogo’, Willy Paul introduces the album with RnB vocals. He asks his lover to learn to trust him because he has been faithful to her despite all the temptations that he has faced, from drugs to women.
‘Nikumbate’ on the other hand is a Rhumba jam, which is full of amazing vibes. Willy Paul sings to a girl named Juliana asking her to hug him because he is feeling cold and wants to be comforted to sleep. Describing her as ‘Katoto, katamu, kafupi, karound’ Willy Paul shows off his artistry by stitching to his head voice.
In the third jam dubbed ‘Something’, Pozze asks his lover to come and give him something because he loves how she gives him love. Willy asks her what she wants, and also asks her not to play with his heart.
‘Tired’ featuring Miss P, Shappaman and Taio, is about a lover who is acting crazy because she is in love. Pozze asks her why she is acting crazy and in the background, a feminine voice answers that it's because she is just in love with him.
‘Collabo’ which was released in the past is a love song that Willy Paul dedicates to his lover. The song touches on how much he loves her with lyrics like ‘Girl you’ll be my one and only’.
His sixth track ‘Nye’ features veteran Genge artist Mejja. ‘Nye’ is directed towards a girl who is playing games with both of them. They tell her to relax because even their mothers don’t love her. The video which was dropped a week ago is doing well on YouTube, with over 381,000 views.

‘In ‘Nomare’ Willy Paul features the great Juliani, who delivers his signature rap which is unique and creative as ever. The song calls out fake people, including the people who judge Willy Paul when he goes to church to thank God to people who live lavish lives in Nairobi but their parents are languishing in the village.
In ‘Solomon’ which is his seventh jam, Pozze lists women from different regions in the country that he is attracted to and that are also attracted to him. In the song, he tells his lovers that they should create a timetable to spend time with him because they have turned him into Solomon from the Bible.
In addition to the singles, Willy Paul dropped the visuals for his last jam ‘Nimelewa’. The jam which is already trending on YouTube talks about how drunk in love he is with his lover. The video is complete with a gorgeous video vixen as he sings for her.
