“I am not Maskal but Mastol, a name which originates from my real name Massah Topola, which was later combined to form my artist name. Seriously I don’t like it when people compare me to Maskal because my music is different, more over I am not into music to make a name.
“I believe that my music is to influence people in a positive way.” That is Mastol, an up-and-coming gospel rapper who is slated to release his new material and make himself part of the growing Malawian music industry.
The youngster, who started rapping in 2012 and says music has been part of his life, believes music is so powerful as it influences people’s perceptions and even characters.
He indicates that is the reason he adds positivity to the music he does for the sake of the youths and the rest of the communities.
The artist, who describes himself as a natural talented musician says it’s high time Christian artists started putting out good quality music.
“We are lifting up our banners as urban gospel musicians, as we declare an end to half-baked music. We believe that good quality music is God quality music. And this starts from the mixing and mastering, delivery in the studio, and most importantly from our relationship with the father,” says Mastol.
He is expected to release his new song titled “Ndakweza Mbendera” featuring Luko, taken from the Book of Romans 1:16, which says “we are unashamed of the gospel of Christ”.
“With only one single big urban gospel musicians have been asking for collaborations and am so sure that my future is good,” he says.
