Grace Chinga’s son speaks out on ‘Ndzaulula’: Dismiss rumour on Prophet Bushiri

Steve Special, son of the decease  gospel music sensation, Grace Chinga, has taken to Facebook to clear rumours surrounding the death of his mother, putting it forward that Malawi’s South African based prophet Shepherd Bushiri never had a hand in her death.

This follows fabricated reports that were cooked and reported by some Malawi online news website and social media groups.

“A lot of people have been asking and willing to hear from me (and my family) in regards to the rumours that went viral on social media,” Steve’s post read in part.

He dismissed claims that suggest that the song ” Ndzaulula ” by  Grace Chinga was talking about Prophet Bushiri.

“It has been a hard moment for us. We have lost our pillar and a figure that kept us strong. Tears are still oozing out and it is so unfortunate to see people using my mother’s death as a way of damaging Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s reputation,” he wrote on his Facebook timeline.

“I do not have a direct contact with Prophet Bushiri and am confident to say that my mother, late Grace Chinga was never in direct contact with Prophet Bushiri.”

Steve also made reference to the song Ndzaulula saying it had nothing to do with the elegant preacher.

“The song in mention, I personally produced it and the message talks about men (first verse) and women (second verse) who are deep in worldly things that they think are hidden from the eyes of God.

“Saying Ndzaulura (I will reveal), my mother depicted the voice of God to such men and women sinning from behind the scenes and pretend to be holy in public. It could be a message for you and in for the things we do in the dark and not necessarily talking about the great man of God, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri,” wrote the bereaved son.

He also took time to apologize to Bushiri on the rumours that engulfed social media.

“On behalf of my siblings, I take this opportunity to personally apologize to Prophet Shepherd Bushiri for what he has gone through when I lost my mother.

“Death awaits everyone. To people who have mocked my mother’s death and used it to their gains, we pray for you and remind you that no one will leave forever. There will come a time when everyone will breath their last.

“We seriously disassociate our family from the rumours. Our mother brought us up to respect men of God and it is upon our Christian values to hold with high esteem all the men and women of God in this country.

“May the soul of our mother, late Grace Chinga continue to rest in peace. She was our hope. We loved her, but God loved her more and we believe the same God will award her for the Christian works she did in her life time.”

Steve also took time to address the issue of piracy for his mothers album and unveiled plans to launch the album.

“And I just want to take this time to answer the recent question that we have received. A lot of people are asking when the new album will be released. Right now Miracle (Chinga’s surviving daughter)  is expected to write MSCE exams this year so right now she is preparing to sit for her MSCE exams but as soon as she is done, we will proceed to launch the #Esther album by our late mother #GraceChinga,” posted the young Chinga.

Commenting on the news, Bushiri expressed his gratitude to Chinga’s family for coming out in the open and expose the truth.

“Am not easily  shaken with matters such as this. We all know who came up with the rumours and why they did it. Malawians are now clever and able to read between the lines. We thank God that the truth is now out and the devil has been put to shame.

“Grace Chinga was a legend, we honour her death and legacy. Its unfortunate that others wanted to use it for their own gains,” said Bushiri.

Meanwhile, press reports say some unscrupulous traders in Lilongwe have pounced on Chinga’s unreleased music albums, making copies of it and flooding the market with pirated version of the album.

Before her death, Chinga started work on her new project by recording two gospel albums at Alimoso Studios, which is run by Aligiza and another at Groove Magic Studios run by Joseph Tembo.

Chinga’s new song called Tikachita Bwino has also gone viral on social media as many view it as the one she prophesied her death.

One of the verses in the song goes: Pena udzafa utachita ngozi/Udzakomoka nkupitilira/Mwina kungogwa kufa osadwala/Pena kufera kutulo osadziwa/Kanthawi katsala konza mtima wako/Usazengeleze mwina mawa sufika/Wina aliyense adzaweluzidwa malingana ndizintchito zake.

Queen of gospel music on the local scene, Ethel Kamwendo  has since called on Copyright Society of Malawi (Cosoma) to stop the piracy of Chinga’s music.

Aaa sh the same bible talked of false prophets in the last days God’s message never invite people to become rich but to share their weathy to the poor and follow him. The issue of bushiri leave him alone if he is fake or false prothet he is calling woe on his body and if he is genuine let God add more blessing note that the truth shall come by the time jesus will come.;>

iiiii Mmalawi nde kayanso basi. kaduka ekha ekha ali phwiiii mkumakana a yakumbuyo aja kuti malawi is a God fearing nation, Which God abale ngati tikumukhalila Yehova pampando mkumaweluza anthu? Can God bless such kind of pipo? Remember God loves everyone and simungamupangile chochita ayi, that is why our nation is still in poverty because we are just good at judging instead of kneeling down to bless pipo! Manyazi atigwile tonse amene timafalitsa za bodza,limeneli ndi tchimo tilape! Kholowa mkabudula (mukathyola) amamela? Samalilani abale Jelasi siumuna,mukamampangila kaduka uyu muonanso ma jet akwana mpaka 25 kuposa magalimoto 20 asalanje!
