This album featured an artist from Angola called Manez Bandeira then we have a powerful worshipper called Larry Gunda who featured on this track called Gwayana raMwari which commemorates the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. That is my favourite song as well and I want to thank worshipper Gunda for featuring in my album.
“I decided to call the album Ndiye Mwari which is my title track because I was looking at my life and saw that the way it is rising and the journey I have been through, I did not walk alone but I walked with God. To be where I am today it is because of the grace of God so looking at other people’s testimonies giving thanks to the Most High I then decided to call the album Ndiye Mwari,” he said.
