Gwamba’s first gospel song ‘Better’ after turning to Christian rap, has received overwhelming response from music lovers. Some fans have openly said they thought the rapper would not deliver on a gospel track having switched from secular rap a month ago.
The song, which features Emm Q and Tammy, was premiered on Radio 2 Wednesday morning before it went up for downloads on Malawi-music.com later at 23:13pm, breaking his previous record with 30,740 downloads in 24 hours.
Home Grown African rapper Classick tweeted: “The new @gwambamw is faya!!!!!I love the choir at the end…”
Better was produced by Black Falcon Bird aka BFB and will be in Gwamba’s debut holy hip-hop album the rapper will be releasing in future.
It is a song that gives hope to the hopeless, encouraging them to have faith in the Lord because things will get better.
Although Gwamba switched to gospel music, the rapper is yet to come open on whether he is now a born-again Christian or not.
When Radio 2 FM’s Joy Nathu asked him in an interview, Gwamba, who sounded calm and composed replied: “That is between me and my God”.
Nathu further asked the award-winning artist about the direction of his music as compared to his past records.
He was specifically quizzed of the song Sindidzasiya Bhawa and Gwamba was quick to say he makes music in tandem with the moment, adding he does not have to explain to anyone about his old lyrics.
Saying he is always surrounded by his family when he is in Malawi and South Africa, where he seemingly is establishing his second home, Gwamba said he was a responsible person.
Regarding doing shows, the former Soul Rebel Entertainment artist explained that he was to nurture the direction of his new music before he can go out to perform.
“I want to focus on the direction of my music; about 4-5 songs then I will start to think of shows,” indicated Gwamba.
The rapper is currently in Blantyre where he is shooting the Better music video, directed by Sukez. According to Gwamba, the video will be released on Monday, February 1.
With 37,468 audio downloads within 24 hours, Gwamba aims to get over 10,000 views for the video the first day on YouTube.
