Gloria Muliro has a reputation that is clean as a whistle. The gospel singer who has filled our ears with beautiful melodies over the years is nary ever in a scandal.
The musician is now involved in a project that might get controversial. Reason?
The song she is set to release is called “Wema” which will feature the talents of one Willy Paul.
Many students of the past will remember that it the collabo, “Sitolia” which Willy Pozze did with Gloria that helped launched his celebrity flame.
The song made Willy a household name and established him as one of the gospel musicians to look out for in the future.
But since then Willy has experimented with his career, with many (including I) speculating that he hadn’t done a gospel song in years and had ditched the roots whence he came.
This week Gloria spoke about the song after the hullabaloo raised over her new song saying.
Speaking to Willy M Tuva and Selly Kadot; Gloria Muliro revealed that the song was recorded about 3 years ago.
However, after waiting for a long time she decided to have it released as the project was now ready.
She said that she felt that the time was now right and that the new song spoke about God’s goodness as not just a blessing, but a perfect fit especially with this pandemic attacking the economy from all directions.
The singer said;
Huo wimbo hatujaufanya wakati huu. Huo wimbo ni wa kitambo, zaidi ya miaka mitatu hivi. Ni wimbo tuliofanya nyakati amabazo Willy hakuwa ameanza kufanya hizo nyimbo zingine. Sio wimbo wa sasa ni wimbo wa kitambo.
The reason she decided to release a lyric video was that it was something that many would not expect.
On the issue of whether she would be doing an official video, the singer made it known that for now, they will be working with the uploaded video until she is done solving her issue with Pozee.
According to Gloria, she has a niggling issue about where Willy stands in relation to his gospel music and that’s why she hasn’t done a video yet. She said;
“Ni kweli kwamba Willy aliweza kuni approach kwa sababu ya kufanya video ya huu wimbo; lakini nikawa na swali ambalo najua wengi pia wamekuwa wakijiuliza. Nikiangalia comments ambazo watu wanaandika wengi wanauliza je Willy amerudi gospel au vipi? Na ninatiwa moyo sana nikiona wengi wangependa Willy akiwabariki na nyimbo za gospel vile alikuwa akiwabariki kitambo.”
