Controversial gospel artiste Willy Paul  whose hit single ‘I do’ featuring Jamaican songstress Alaine is currently dominating the gospel airwaves, has complained about tribalism in the gospel industry.

In a post on his Instagram page the singer revealed that the tribalism in the gospel industry was too much for him to handle.

“The tribalism in the so Called gospel industry is too much for me to handle…” Wrote Willy Paul.

However his fans flocked the post to offer him moral support and encourage him.

It is not clear if the alleged tribalism on the gospel industry is the reason why the singer signed a deal with Diamond platinumz’s Wasafi.com streaming site that gave the site the authority to allow his Tanzanian fans to download his hit single “I do” .

Yesterday the outspoken artiste who has received a lot of backlash in recent months over his music style which is deemed by many as not in line with Christian values, had assured his fans that him being real is the reason why God has blessed him without struggles in an Instagram post.

Willy further claimed that he was  a pacesetter in the gospel industry while the rest were copying from him which was making him proud.

It is not clear whom the message was directed but many feel it was directed to his  former arch-rival Bahati who the previous day released a hit single “Nikumbushe “ which features a Wasafi signed artiste Rayvanny.
