Apart from entertaining listeners, music also teaches and preaches the gospel. This is exactly what Spirit Culture Ministries intends to do with their music.
In an interview, the group’s spokesperson, Jameson Makande, a student at Malawi Institute of Journalism (MIJ) in Blantyre, said that Spirit Culture Ministries’ main area of focus is to proclaim the gospel of the Lord through the music.
“Music is a quick tool in spreading messages. Most of the time, people complain about youths’ behaviour such as drug and alcohol abuse and that they do not take an active role in spreading the gospel of the Lord.
“So, Spirit Culture Ministries would like to bring a change in that kind of behaviour and transform our fellow youth through the music,” said the 20-year-old
On his part, the director for the group, Mervyn Njerwa, admitted that the group has since released a hip-hop single and video for the song Hope off the World Up, which be released next month.
“Hope gives expectation and courage to people who are in trouble and think that the Lord had forgotten them. We urge them to only trust the living God and use prayer as a tool to destruct devil,” he said.
The launch of the single track will be held on August 29 at Presbyterian Church of Malawi (PCM) close to MBCtv in Central Area, Blantyre during a youth impact event.
Guest artists at the event will include Hala Music, The Fanatics, Faith Kayz, DJ Zimbabwe and Cornerstone. Other activities will include drama, poetry and dance.
Spirit Culture Ministries has nine members who are talented in poetry, drama, song composing, as well as video shooting.
