The well-known gospel ensemble in Malawi the Marching Soldiers have hinted that they are planning a comeback.
According to Chairperson of the group Christopher Misuku, the renowned gospel assembly has not been active due to the busy schedules of its members who are currently away from each other.
In an interview with Malawi24 on Wednesday, Misuku said Marching Soldiers as a group has been hit by work demands which led its members to go far away from each other hence failing to release songs.
However, Misuku said though the situation of not being together as a group started five years ago, the group is still sticking to the mission and that they are still serving God for they know they were called to function for the Lord.
“We have remained together and still serving our call by the Lord God to worship him and evangelize through gospel music, but we are very patient, we take out time but also follow a plan. This however has not been easy because of distance and financial demands,” said Misuku.
He added that the group is working hard to ensure that they carry on with their gospel preaching through singing, and the group is in discussion with music distributors to make the songs available in strategic places across the nation.
“God brought us together for a purpose to serve him. We know that and working hard to ensure we continue with our work, God blessed us with jobs yes, and these jobs should in no way stop us from praising our God and preach the gospel through singing,” he explained.
He also expressed delight to see new gospel artists erupting to the world with a bang and further commended the media in promoting the talent.
Marching Soldiers, a gospel singing group from Thundu C.C.A.P in Bangwe township of Blantyre, began in 2002. The group has three albums: first album titled Yesu Ndiye Mathero was released in 2005 while the second Tikuthokozani was released three years later.
The seven member released their last album Pokhala Mtendere in 2012.
