Nam Gospel United back with a bang
By Rosalia David
NAM Gospel United, a group consisting of various local gospel artists is back with a bang gearing up for the release of their third annual song titled, ‘Don’t give up on life’.
This follows on the heels of the group’s 2019 project released last year titled, ‘No Longer Slaves’ a song with some of the best gospel artists in the country where they sang in their vernacular and English encouraging many to break free from the bondage of worldly sin.
‘No Longer Slaves’ features D-Naff, Lady May Africa, Lady Dyna, Maranatha Goroh, Pride, Franklin and Jericho.
In 2018, Nam Gospel United released their first project titled ‘We Pray’ featuring D-Naff, Effy, Lady Dyna, Tony the Poet, Maranatha Goroh, Bhuqaid, Pride, Alex Shiwayu, Justin Lomame, Levite and Dee’A.
In an interview with Confidente, veteran gospel musician and founder of Nam Gospel United, Naftalie Amukwelele best known as D-Naff said this year, the group has prepared a much bigger and better song compared to the one of last year.
He said the track ‘Don’t give up on life’ will also feature guest musicians such as Harry, Fire 16, Zambia Nyasyo and many others.
“Last year, we had Jericho as a guest and I can promise you that this one is also a big song. We will be dropping it with a music video. With so many talented musicians on one song, one just needs to expect the best product.
“Each year, we include different guest artists to feature on the Nam Gospel yearly song, that is why we have different artists, new faces and voices,” said D-Naff.
Pointing out their mandate, D-Naff said, the group was formed to bring local gospel artists together to work as one and that they have been doing just that.
In the same interview, he also revealed that one of his Shambo artists signed under ‘D-Naff Entertainment’ will be releasing a song titled ‘Ondelekelama’ at the end of July.
He explained that the title ‘Ondelekelama’ is the name of the old school telephone people used back in the days. “The concept is of a love story but also trying to take us back to our roots with the type of communication people used in the olden days since technology has advanced and has taken away things we used to appreciate.
“We are all busy in the studio. Nam Gospel is done with their song, Christmas will be releasing soon and Lady May Africa has also been hard at work,” he added.
