Gospel musician Onesiums seems to be making strides in South Africa as his song, Thank You Lord, has been used as a soundtrack for the South African movie De Brazzaville.
The artist, real name Armstrong Kalua, said his song was selected by established film makers De Brazzaville in Johannesburg recently.
Information sourced from De Brazzaville indicates that out of 2 000-plus potential soundtracks competing for selection, Thank You Lord received the highest number of votes from 10 movie editors.
Onesimus is currently working on a new album The Worship Core, which is being recorded at Phat Planet Studio by producer Dinno.
“It has always been my wish to have some of my songs reproduced by Dinno. He is one of the best producers I have ever met and I believe we will have something good at the end of the project.
“The Worship Core is about expressing our gratitude to God for who he is and for the gift of life. I feel like he needs to be worshiped continuously with humble hearts,” explained Onesimus, who recently got engaged to South African designer Lisa Mlanduli.
According to the artist’s manager Kelvin Sulugwe, the album will be ready by January.
“All the songs for the album are ready, we are just finalising one or two things, I am sure that by January next year, people will access the album,” said Sulugwe.
Sulugwe said K6 million has been pumped into the project with support from Prophet Shepherd Bushiri of Enlightened Christian Gathering Church.
“With such huge assistance, we have managed to record some songs with renowned gospel musicians such as Kirk Franklin, Hillsong, Jesus Culture and Sipho Makhabane. And currently we are finalising our recording with Dino,” said the manager.
