Kenyan musician Willy Paul, born Wilson Abubakar Radido has explained that he exited the gospel music industry because his fellow gospel musicians are always against his work and working to see him fail.
In an interview with comedian Jalang’o, the musician disclosed that some gospel musicians protested against his music being played on some radio stations at the time he was depending on music for survival and to cater for his mother.
“These guys were so against me that they protested against my music being played on several radio stations like two or three of them. There was a time I was solely depending on music for survival, to cater to my mom’s bills and mine. But these people were so heartless they didn’t care,” he said.
The Njiwa crooner further explained that his exit from the gospel industry is not a split with God. He reiterated his sonship in God and his exit will not hinder his blessings from God just as it has not hindered the blessings of secular musicians such as Sauti Sol, Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy and Chris Brown.
“God and I have not split, I’m still his son. But the thing is, the same God that blesses Sauti Sol, Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy and even Chris Brown is the same God that blesses gospel artistes,” Willy Paul stated.
According to him, he is the second most successful musician in Kenyan after rapper Khaligraph Jones and feels liberated after walking away from the gospel industry.
He is poised to make music in his unique way without inhibition.
“As we speak, I’m free because what I’m doing now is just music, no boundaries. I’ll wake up tomorrow I feel like worshipping I’ll worship, I feel like love, I’ll sing a love song. Now I don’t have to beg anyone or kneel before anyone to get anything,” he further explained.
Willy Paul recounted the difficulty he had in convincing his mother to allow him to do music as a profession after the death of his father. try his hand at music.
