A ZIMBABWEAN musician has amazingly turned from singing secular music to gospel citing President Edgar Lungu’s respect for God as the main driving reason.
Kush Kushe, who has since dropped an album he has named Ba Lungu wa Mulungu also collaborated with a number of Zambian Gospel artistes to put the works together.
Some of the songs in the eight track compilation are the title track Ba Lungu Wa Mulungu, Zambia, Mother of the Nations, Lesa, Chalo Chawama, Xenophobia and Amazing Higher.
Kush, who is known for rock music, says he could not believe seeing a Head of State who has all the privileges in this world humbling himself before God in prayer and fasting.
Kush says Zambia is indeed a mother of many African nations as it has led by example in helping other countries fight for their independence and has accommodated one of the largest numbers of refugees on the continent.
“I was shocked to see the President of Zambia, Mr Lungu pray and fast. From that day I humbled myself with conviction that if the Head of State could bring himself before God and praise Him, who am I?
Kush says he will be very happy to sing at President Robert Mugabe’s birthday party as a gospel artiste, thanks to President Lungu’s decision to declare such a memorable day on the national calendar.
