In her quest to spread the biblical good news, Blantyre based up and coming Christian contemporary music artist- Nara418 real name Gerinda Kalipide has promised to raise the bar in the country’s gospel music fraternity.
The 24-year-old promising gospel artist first faced the studio booth in 2019 with a song “Maso Anga” which is currently enjoying downloads in local online platforms.
According to Nara418, everyone is talented and her talent belongs to God.
“I believe that God deposited talent in every one of us but what is required is for you to discover it and start working on it. The sky is not the limit, you can do great things, and 2020 is the year of grace, I will spread the gospel” she said.
She also urged Malawians to support her music journey and promised to release more songs.
“You should be on the lookout for more songs which uplifts your soul. Jesus did not come for the perfect souls,
He (Jesus) came for the wounded, the broken, the hopeless and the weary. My music is here to bring you to hope and trust me, you will never remain the same,” she said.
Nara418, who is also a final year journalism student at the University of Malawi, the Polytechnic, she started composing music when she was in primary school although she did not record any songs until now 2019.
“I realized that I can compose songs when I was 13 but to take up the courage to go to the studio was a big thing for me.
Honestly, I was afraid until I joined a choir at SCOM in secondary school and my local church. And I would like to say that this song is just the beginning of many songs that I will compose,” she said.
