Also known as “the Son of Africa” gospel musician, Ephraim, has also joined the bandwagon of artists condemning the decision to pursue music for the pleasure of politicians.
The hitmaker with several albums to his name featured on Diamond TV’s On The Table with Chimweka where he explained to the host that musicians, especially Gospel artists have the power to unite “Nations” as alluded to in the Bible, therefore publicly siding with a certain party may cause division among their followers.
He has further advised artist involved or tempted to do so to pray hard about it before making a decision as it is something he would personally take time to consider before going ahead with it.
Just recently, JK, Wille, Chester and Kayombo did a song to celebrate the acquittal of former Housing and Infrastructure Minister and now Minister of Tourism and Arts, Ronald Chitotela from his corruption charges. The artists have been heavily criticized for their political inclination.
Meanwhile during the same interview, Chimweka asked Ephraim what his definition of a legend is, to which Ephraim responded by saying “someone who’s been doing what they’re known for consistently for a period of time“, a quality he personally feels he possesses. He also mentioned how he has enjoyed working with secular artist Macky 2 and revealed how he wrote the “Umutima Wandi” song that also features Njamba.
