Man of the moment in as far as gospel music is concerned Shammah Vocals has said his failure in E-wallet Talent Show Auditions in 2015 inspired him to apply more effort in music.
The singer did not convince the judging panel of Marvin Hanke, Dumisani Mfune and Rudo Chakwera, thus he got three Nos.
However, being denied space in the singing competition was too small a factor to influence his early retirement from the mic.
In an interview with Malawi24 on Sunday, the My Zoe hitmaker stressed that hard work and prayer have been paramount to his success.
“Those comments given by the judges made me to work so hard but all in all God has been the center of my everything, I prayed for it and I worked so hard, God did the rest. I know the journey continues as I believe am not yet where my dreams are,” he said.
The Blantyre based musician also advises others in music to take criticism in positive light. He added that they should pray hard because God is the only one who unlocks barriers to success.
Three years after Shammah’ E-wallet nightmare he found himself basking in intense fame. All this, thanks to his soul touching music. He got into the limelight with songs such as Daily, No Reverse, Yesu and Amakukhala. Meanwhile, he is trending with My Zoe.
Apparently, none of the musicians who won in each edition of the singing competition have ever had an impact like Shammah. They sank into oblivion.
