Do you know that when you become a Christian, you also accept the commission as a missionary? That might not be how we usually think of it, but God’s love is so intense and strong.
And journalist-cum-musician, Howard Mlozi, subscribes to this conviction, which sarcastically made him to dump secular music for gospel.
“God wanted me to help tell the world about Jesus Christ and share His love with the world through gospel music.
Some quarters may hold opposite views as they are entitled to opinions and freedom of expression but I thought it wise to dedicate my life to Jesus Christ and continue to glorify Him through a right style of music. And delights my soul,” said Mlozi.
He said his gospel music is inspired by the time Lord Jesus Christ was resurrected and appeared to Mary Magdalene, then to others.
“When Jesus resurrected he told people to go into the entire world and preach the Good News to everyone (Mark 16:15). So, I decided to embrace music as my weapon to go to the world too to preach about His good news,” said Mlozi.
The 27-year old musician has since dropped his 10-track debut gospel album called Go Deeper, which was recorded at Triple G Studios (Elvito Productions) by Elvis Ching’oma in Chilobwe Township, Blantyre. And it features tracks such as ‘Go Deeper/Mwayenera’, ‘Adzatilanga’, ‘Yesu Amayankha’, ‘Free Man/Ndine Mfulu’, ‘Wamakamu’, among others.
He described Go Deeper album as a fusion of inspirational urban and local gospel beats which endeavors to appeal to different audience with variety of music choices.
“I have made this album listener friendly in the sense that it accommodates different music genres which are suitable to a particular ear,” said Mlozi who hails from Mvera in Dowa.
But what is it in ‘Go Deeper’?
Mlozi said: “This is an urban song with a composed tempo in which a commissioned ‘man of God’ called Howard Mlozi is making a visionary prophecy on a mankind. But remember, I am not an ordained prophet other than a messenger of God’s word who is mostly reflecting on issues that are happening in the modern day world.”
Go Deeper will officially be released in February next year but its promotion kick-starts on December 10, this year. Mlozi describes himself as a proud Malawian young man who loves grassroots work and values the power of effective communication which forms an integral part of community empowerment and poverty reduction among poor people.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
