Willy Paul finally clarifies on quitting gospel industry

Musician Willy Paul has finally disclosed why he ditched the gospel music industry for secular.

In a lengthy Instagram post, the singer disclosed that he opted to switch sides due to too much hatred in the gospel world.

He also pointed out that he was always frustrated by fellow artists and DJs who denied him airplay with claims that his songs were not good enough.

“Some of you ask me why I left the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. And even call me names because I no longer praise Jesus in my songs… according to them I’m so evil and everything bad. Those are the same people that fought me nikiwa upande wa Yesu

“Reasons as to why I left. Hate from my fellow artists and Djs, luck of airplay ( claiming my content wasn’t Godly back then ) ubaguzi na mapendeleo.. I was the top artist but these evil people couldn’t see that. Or they just chose to ignore the reality!” he said in part.

Willy went on to reveal that the frustrations drove him into depression and at some point he couldn’t even pay his bills.

“This people broke my heart! They hurt me so bad, I was depressed 4months I kept crying in silence every single day and night. It got to a point where I couldn’t take it anymore.. I had no money to pay my bills and even help out pale nyumbani. Can you imagine I had the biggest songs na hawa watu wakanichorea hivo tu. I’m not perfect but what I went through as a gospel artist, no servant of God should go through!!.

Since I loved music and had bigger hopes with my career I chose the other side which is where I am today, n that’s what has kept me alive and stable.I was tired of the hypocrisy in the so called Gospel industry. Plus I just wanted 2b real with myself and not lie to God! God cannot be fooled so I took a chill pill na sai niko hapa. Same same people that didn’t want me there were the first to reach out !!” said Willy Paul in part.
