One of the up and coming Gospel artist in the country Steve Makupe has lamented over lack of sponsorship saying it is making it hard for them to go far with their music careers.
Speaking to Malawi24, Makupe said the most challenging issue for up and coming gospel in the country is lack of money which make them not to blow in the industry.
”The most challenging issue is sponsorship. Most up coming Gospel artists do lack finances to cater for every detail of music production,” said Makupe.
He added that another challenge is that some established gospel artist lack love for up and coming Gospel artists but claim they sing for Yahweh.
According to Makupe, other gospel artists look down on those who are just coming in, which is bringing down most new gospel artists.
The 20 year-old said he started in January 2014 singing secular music but in 2015 he realised that the best is to sing for God and win souls through music.
With 10 songs so far, Makupe dreams big as he wants to win more souls to Christ through his music.
Inspired by Nthambi, Pro litto, Suffix just to mention a few, he is thinking of releasing two videos mid November and has already released one video titled ‘Yesu ndi Dhilu’.
He advised those who wants to join the industry to put God first and everything will work out for their good.
