Fast rising gospel singer Papa Dennis is casting his net wider. The youngster has landed on a humongous sponsorship deal from a Dubai based tycoon, who has promised to finance his upcoming music video to a tune of a whooping Sh15.7Million.

Accroding to the star’s Word Is, the video will make history as Kenya’s most expensive music video so far.


The deal was struck when the injili singer visited the United Arab Emirates in July, where he had been invited to perform in a  birthday party for a prominent Sheikh’s daughter. The video shoot for the sing ‘Wonder’ started last week in the scenic Magadi and will proceed to Dubai starting October 18.

Papa’s manager Maliza Umaskini’s Sadat Muhindi, said: ” First of all, the sponsor who happens to be a prominent Sheikh in UAE, doesn’t want to give his name to the media. He is doing charity in order to grow talent. He wants absolutely no publicity. Papa performed at his daughter’s birthday party and he was really impressed and that’s when he promised to finance his next project. Papa’s dreams are becoming valid.”
