Kenyan youth have reacted after Deputy President William Ruto announced that he has partnered with Willy Paul in a new creative arts initiative.
In a tweet shared on Tuesday, DP Ruto mentioned that he had agreed to partner with Willy Paul and other creatives in the quest to make the creative economy flourish in the country.
“We are investing in the dreams of young people through creative arts with the appreciation that music, dance, drama, and more can promote positive and powerful economic and social transformation in our society.

Following the announcement, a section of youth feel like it was not fair for the DP to partner with Willy Paul.
The angry youth argued that he should have used more youth who are still struggling to make a name for themselves in the arts industry.
Another section also urged Willy Paul to be very careful with the deal he just got from the DP.
