AFM pastor drops second album

HARARE – Pastor Gift Mwanza has released a second album titled Mwari Vachatisvitsa after a four-year break from music.

Mwanza, an Apostolic Faith Mission (AFM) pastor, says the new six-track offering revolves around God’s nature as the true elevator and transformer of people’s lives.

“The album is all about the importance of God in everyone’s life,” said Mwanza.

“Without his unmerited favour every vision, idea, dream or plan comes to nothing.”

The AFM pastor is particularly excited about Bvunza Jesu which describes God as the only one with the ability to change the fortunes of outcasts and elevate them to lofty positions in society.

In the song Kereke yekwa Kruger, Mwanza looks back with nostalgia at the way the old Church used to conduct its praise and worship in a dignified manner. He urges the modern Church to remain steadfast in biblically acceptable praise and worship.

Mwanza also advises people never to tire in seeking help from God in the Anogona Jesu while in Jerusarema he urges Christians to uphold forgiveness.

Wakafanana is about God’s peerlessness .The last song on the album is Eria which encourages Christians to persevere in the face of tribulations.

The album, which fuses sungura and traditional music, is a sequel to his debut album Nguva Yasara NdeyaJesu which was released in 2008.

“My inspiration comes from the Bible,” said Mwanza who leads a 10-member group that includes his wife.

The AFM pastor has shared the stage with popular musicians like Charles and Olivia Charamba, Blessing Shumba, Fungisai Zvakavapano-Mashavave and Mathias Mhere during peace rallies and AFM conferences.

“The Bible speaks more on the need for peace, that is why I never take peace rallies for granted,” he said.

Mwanza, whose album was recorded by Diamond Studios, is confident that he is on the verge of a great music career.
