Secular Industry has Kept me Alive and Stable, Willy Paul on Quitting Gospel

June 11, 2021

Willy Paul has finally answered the burning question about why he renounced the gospel music industry for secular.

In a lengthy post on his socials, Willy Paul cited the hypocrisy in the gospel industry, saying its gatekeepers were hellbent on bringing him down.

“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!” the singer wrote in part.

As a result of the frustrations, the Saldido Records founder said he went broke and fell into depression for months.

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!!” he observed.

Willy Paul said he found solace in the secular music industry.

“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,” he stated.

Adding: “Same same people that didn’t want me there were the first to reach out!!”
