After scoring zero in this year’s Groove Awards, controversial gospel singer Willy Paul stormed out of the Saturday night ceremony at the Safaricom Stadium Kasarani gymnasium in a fury.

“Where is my car and my girlfriend?” paparazzi who tried to get a comment from him on his lack poor score could hear him asking a friend on the phone. According to them, he looked perturbed and rather dejected. The many friends who usually hang around him were nowhere to be seen.

In a year when the big story from the gospel front has been the beef between two past Male Artiste of the Year winners – Willy Paul (2013) and Bahati (2014) – it looks like the latter is having the last laugh. He was the king of the night and congratulatory messages have been streaming in thick and fast. He has many new friends. The ‘Barua’ singer upset his arch-rival by scooping all four categories he had been nominated in, including the coveted Song of the Year and Male Artiste of the Year, as Willy Paul went home empty-handed.

It was a humiliating defeat for the ‘Sitolia’ star whom Bahati has been crying about, claiming Paul has been ‘stealing’ his songs. “I thank God for all this. Glory be to His name. As I said before, I sing to glorify God and I want nothing to do with our (his and Willy Paul’s) stories. I treat him as a brother,” Bahati told MondayBlues yesterday
