Six Blantyre-based Catholic choir groups have all the reasons to pray that God should bless Felix Mtokoma and his Mtokoma Studio.
Mtokoma has offered to record the choir groups’ joint compact disc and DVD at his Mtokoma Studio for free.
The choirs are Sts Paulina (Chilobwe), Agnes (Chirimba), Elizabeth (Mkoka-Nancholi), Mary (Ndirande), Monica (Ndala-Chileka) and Cecilia of Malunga and their album is called Catholic Singles Collection Volume 1.
In an interview on Wednesday, Mtomoka said he appreciates the importance and power of music in spreading the gospel; hence, the decision to assist the choirs.
“I felt by recording the gospel CD and DVD free of charge, I am also contributing to the spreading of the gospel. I also know that these choirs will now reach far and wide in their efforts to save lost souls through music recorded at my studio,” said Mtomoka.
Mtokoma came into the limelight after releasing his first album in 2001 in which there was a track Malume kutawuni ndabwerako, which became popular for discouraging young people from trekking to town, but rather invest their energies in farming in the village.
Mtomoka said he launched his music career at a tender age at St. Pius Catholic Church where he was a member of St. Monica Choir.
He opened Mtokoma Studio in August 2014 to promote and develop talent in the country.
Mtokoma promised that he will continue promoting church choirs alongside secular musicians. n
