Gospel music not for money making

Gospel Artistes should be ministers of God’s word through their music. FOUNDER and lead singer of the Malembe Malembe gospel team, Kings Mumbi has urged upcoming artistes not to use gospel music as a money making mission.

Kings Mumbi popularly known as Kings Malembe said gospel music was a calling from God and that for one to be able to deliver the good news, the word of God has to be deposited in them.

“Artistes should be ministers of God’s word through their music,” he said.

Kings has also expressed happiness with the development of gospel music in the country.

“I am very happy with how gospel music has grown and impressed with the frequency of live concerts by the local artistes,” said Kings.

He encouraged upcoming artistes to be unique and standout in order to sell their music.

Other than music, Kings gets a living from importing male suits for resale under the label ‘malembe suits’. Kings chose to work with clothes because of his passion for fashion.

Though his business is mobile, he hopes to be stationery next year.

He recently performed at the first ladys’ pioneered project ‘ubutala bwa bumi’ and is currently working on the launch of his latest album ‘no retreat’ which will be held at heroes stadium in august next year.

Kings is currently preparing for the concert with South African songbird Rebecca Malope at bread of life church international in Lusaka on the 6thof December, 2013.
