Malawian gospel musician Duncan Zgambo alias Gwamba took his 10-track CD Jesus Is My Boss to Blantyre at the Robins Park where it fetched about K17 million in a matter of an hour of auctioning.
Having performed to hundreds at Bingu International Convention Centre in December, Gwamba mesmerised patrons in Blantyre with a great performance.
But it was a show of money that took centre stage.
Musician Dan Lu of ‘Sweet Banana’ hit song bought Gwamba’s CD at K500, 000. Former spokesperson of Prophet Bushiri Kelvin Sulugwe bought the CD at K200,000, singer Fredokiss offered K3 million.
Popular Malawian born prophet Shepherd Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) was the highest bidder buying the CD at a cool K10 million.
Several others kept buying the CD in thousands. And within an hour or two, ‘Jesus is my Boss’ fetched K17 million.
During the show former rapper Armstrong who rebranded himself as a gospel singer to Onesimus performed as supporting artist and splashed K1, 000 bank notes in thousands when he sung chat bursting song ‘Mirale Money’.
In the ‘Miracle Money’, Onesimus sings about cash from heaven.
‘Miracle money’ is one of the popular tags that people associate with Bushiri, the Major 1.
According to the song, if people just believe in the power of God, they can receive miracles, including money.
Onesimum praises Bushiri’s power in churning out miracle money.
From Blantyre, Gwamba takes his album to Mzuzu in May and one of the promoters Kelvin Sulugwe of Kanopy Events hinted the show will be free for all.
Gwamba started playing music at the age of 14during his early years at St John’s Catholic Secondary School in Lilongwe, where he joined Pittie Boys, a group founded by L.I., EMM-Q and Cyclone.
The boys grew up with the rap star feeling, which became an obsession that made them start organising music events on campus.
Gwamba, who was inspired by US rapper/actor 50 Cent and disbanded Malawian hip-hop crew, originally from Mwazisi in the northern district of Rumphi, Gwamba was born at Nkhoma Hospital in Lilongwe in a family of four children.
His stage name was derived from Tumbuka meaning “a giver”.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
