Willy Paul has come out to address the frustration he went through as a gospel artiste.

He says that he quit the music genre because of unseen forces who worked day and night to bring him down. This led to him falling into depression and eventually going broke.

In a long rant, Willy Paul details the dramatic exit from gospel music.

"Ever wondered why people hate for no reason? Well the so called haters are not really haters. They just wish they had what you have.

Yaani they wish they were you or even a quarter of what you're. Don't let nobody tell you what is wrong or right for you, kila mtu atazikwa peke yake. 

Ask me about myself n I'll tell you I'm the strongest of them all. What haven't I seen in this life? Poverty, good life, Beautiful women,Kamati ya roho chafu? Just to mention a few.

People have hated on me for no reason, but that has never stopped me from being me. I've been betrayed by close friends and even family but look, I'm still here standing strong!

Ata kwa hii post kuna wale wenye roho mbaya ya m*vi wanajipanga kuangusha stupid comments...No amount of hate can pin me to the ground.

Kama mpaka leo sijawai enda chini juu ya chuki then I don't think I ever will. 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'm not perfect but what I went through as a gospel artist, no servant of God should go through!!

I was the top artist but these evil people couldn't see that. Or they just chose to ignore the reality! These people broke my heart! They hurt me so badly, I was depressed for 4 months 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 2 b 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 !!!"
