One of the finest gospel artists in Vhembe, Mukondi Malabi, wants to continue touching people's lives through her music, after she recently recorded her second album at the Living Gospel World Mission in Tshilivho.
Mukondi said the album, Ndi do renda tshilidzi tshau (I will sing aloud for your mercy), is made up of 24 worth-listening songs. Some of the songs are Wo nkhathutshela, Nga thabelo, Mudzimu a lwelaho, Ndi do renda, Lufuno lwau, U wanga, He is alive and reigns, You never cease to amaze me, Lord, Ndza Kudzunisa, and Ro themba vhone.
Mukondi, who hails from Makwarela, said that she started singing professionally in 2016. "I grew up loving gospel music and singing at Sunday school and it is my passion. Participating in dramas at Sunday school groomed me to be where I am today. Growing up in a family that loves music inspired me and encouraged me to follow my dream. My mom can sing as well but she didn't record any album," she said.
She told Limpopo Mirror that she wanted to touch people’s hearts and praise God through her music. "I am a strong believer in God, and I use my music to praise Him and spread his healing message. For me, singing Gospel is another way of preaching a message to touch people's lives. Preaching a message of salvation to non-believers and touch the lives of those whose hearts are broken," she said.
"I want to use my music to help people see life in a positive way. God gives us talents and we need to utilize them effectively," she said. Those interested in her first album, Muita Madembe, can phone her on 083 454 3057 or 082 586 2086.
