Gwamba  managed to take home three awards in this year’s UMP awards in the categories namely best gospel of the year, best album of the year (Jesus is my boss) and the best collaboration of the year which is ‘Mr Yesu’ in which he featured Kell Kay.

Speaking in an interview with Malawi24, Fredokiss dedicated his awards to the ghetto saying that without his fans’ support in the ghetto no award would have been won.

“I don’t take this for granted and that is why I am dedicating my awards to my fans in the ghetto. I am also thanking God for the awards since I know that I am not the best among all the artists in Malawi,” Fredokiss told Malawi24.

He further urged up and coming artists to dream big and aim to achieve a lot in music industry.

    • always looking 4 mistakes mwa anzanu basi….u think coz gwamba ndi celeb basi he should be peferct…though i havent met u koma i know u r a worse sinner than him

  4. Paoseowo palibe amene amandiwaza kukhani yamaimbidwe muthu wadzeru sangamanene kut Mr Yesu ajimwiche uli mwadzuka bwanji

  5. I dont get it for how long would this album Jesus is my Boss be Nominated, last years it was also nominated and awarded, is it being released every year or what,

    From My point of view best gospel artist should have been Saxess..becouse there is touch in his songs, thats what gospel songs should be,

    Gwamba has advantage becouse his fans he had when doing circular music are being loyal to him, buts interms of gospel music he is very far behind there is no touch in his songs its just like he mention the word Jesus and God in his songs but the style of singing is the circular one.
