Gospel artists in the country have been asked to use their music in inspiring social behaviour change among the youth.
This was said by Pastor Triza Gunde of Neligo Women Choir who told Malawi24 that time has come for gospel musicians to tackle some of the issues that are affecting lives of the youth across the country.
In her words, Gunde said the group is not only concerned with the spreading of the gospel but it also concentrates on the behaviour of young people that is why they mostly put on school uniforms in their music videos and performances in different shows across the country.
“Most of our songs we also use house, r’n’b and some traditional beats like chioda so that we can attract people at the same time teaching them words of God as they dance and listen to our music,” said Gunde.
She added that they also want to encourage the girl child to work hard so that she can be independent in the future while transforming her spiritual life to overcome challenges in her education and everyday life.
According to Gunde, the choir has also managed to encourage other women in Ndirande to go back to school.
The Ndirande based group comprises twenty women and they are currently working on their second album titled Ndioloke Baba which is to be launched next year in April.
Meanwhile, the choir has expressed gratitude to Malawians for welcoming them and for falling in love with their music.
