Willy Paul Explains Why The Gospel Music Industry Would Have Killed Him

Wilson Abubakar Radido largely known as Willy Paul, the Kenyan vocalist behind the recent smash album “Beyond Gifted” has broken his silence on his departure from the evangelical music scene, detailing the hardships and pressures that prompted his decision to pursue secular music.

In an exclusive interview with a local radio station, Willy Paul, also known as Pozee, offered his candid opinions on the turbulent era that preceded his exit from gospel music.

He described feeling alienated and unwelcome in the gospel industry, citing unknown instances that forced him to reassess his musical approach.

“Many things happened, you know, sometimes you feel like if you don’t leave where you are, you’ll be killed. In such situations, you have to remove yourself from those environments. Many things were happening when I was in gospel. I don’t want to point fingers, but they know,” Pozee confessed.

The ‘Kitanzi’ hitmaker did not shy away from discussing the alleged tension he experienced, admitting that sticking in the gospel scene could have had serious ramifications for his mental health.

He said that the immense stress he was experiencing drove him to consider drastic measures such as suicide or insanity.

Despite the difficulties he faced, Willy Paul had no remorse about his decision to embrace secular music, reiterating his commitment to move forward and achieve his artistic vision.

“The people I was with know what they did to me, but I didn’t want to talk about it. However, I had to move forward, and I never regret my decisions, so I don’t regret where I am today,” he declared.

Reflecting on his experience, Willy Paul stressed the need to balance his mental health and artistic freedom.

He stressed the toxic nature of certain environments in the evangelical music industry, as well as the importance of putting one’s own well-being ahead of societal standards.
