There are times he went without food and accumulated rent arrears to pay for child support after a girl he had a one-night-stand with told him she had his child. Now, Paul Onyango aka Boss, the celebrated gospel singer formerly of the group Men of God (MOG) exclusively reveals to Pulse magazine his heartache and fury after the supposed baby-mama came clean and confessed it was all a lie:
For more than three years now, Paul Onyango aka Boss has been toiling day and night to make ends meet as he seeks to pay child support for a child he supposedly fathered in 2015. It is a story filled with fury and torment, a nasty experience where the victim-turned-villain has been fleecing the former MOG singer. Now, she says it was all a lie.

“Oh yeah…I am good bro. It’s been a minute. What’s kicking,” I break the ice, easing the tension with another hot sip.
He nods as he slices his fingers through his dreads, and then rests his left hand on his chin. A thin smile flashes across his face. We are good to go.
“You have been looking for us… so here we are. Must be some good news…Is it a launch or something… wedding bells, perhaps?” I ask, my phone recorder set and my notebook and pen ready to get the big story.
“It is not good news. In fact, it is the complete opposite. I have been exploited mentally and financially by a certain lady called Tina. I have been going through this since 2015 and I can’t keep this a secret anymore. So I called you because I wanted to let it out…let the public know the truth,” head bowed down, he lets out.
