After taking a break for a few months from releasing new music, gospel hip-hop artist Gwamba has returned with a message of hope in his new single, Get There.
The artist has collaborated with United States-based soul artist Maskal to deliver a song which is a reminder that the troubles that people are going through during their time on earth are not permanent.
Gwamba did the rap lines on the song while his counterpart perfected the chorus.
“Pena ngati mwina ndingogiva/ ndikupemphera koma ambuye sakundimva. Njala, nthenda mavuto andiliza. Ndikuona ngati Bible limatinamiza. Dzitseko dzamadalitso ndayesa kunoka/mbuye sakutsekula padakali poloka…”goes the song in part.
Gwamba said the song mirrors what is going on in the world at the moment when people are in need of hope and encouragement.
“The purpose of such songs is for long-term benefits. Whenever you feel lost, you can listen to it, even after months or years. The meaning and lessons from the message will never change. The song strengthens the soul,” he said.
The artist has since commended Maskal’s contribution in the song, describing him as a genius. The song was produced by BFB and its video, whose total production cost has been pegged at K3 million, was produced by Gift ‘Sukez’ Sukali.
This is the second time in a month that the US-based Maskal has been featured in a song by a local artist. First it was his duet with Barry One and the artist said the response that he has so far received has been amazing.
“Gwamba is doing great things in the industry,” he said.
