He also said “Jesus is number one” album has well produced and mature songs that will help change the picture of the gospel music industry in the country.
“For so long people have been complaining that Malawi artist especially those doing gospel music rush in producing their songs and they pay little attention to the quality, but I have a different story to tell. I took much time to record my songs so that they should not have a compromised quality,”he said.
Chimwala, who claim not to be in the industry for profit said, he regard music as a ministry.
“I have been called into this, am a messenger of Christ and my dream is to proclaim the word of God to all kinds of people,” he said.
