Musician Wilson Abubakar Radido popularly known as Willy Paul has declared that he is not turning back any time soon as opposed to calls to change his ways and act like a gospel artiste.

Over the weekend, Willy Paul was in Sumbawanga , Tanzania for the Nandy Festival where he took to social media to affirm that he is going to do what he thinks and feels is right.

For the past few months, Willy has been under criticism from the Gospel fraternity, with allegations that his deeds don't reflect that of a Gospel artiste.

His statement “No turning back” elicited mixed reactions among his fans with a section asking him to drop the “Gospel artiste” tag so that he can perform freely without being criticized.
