Andile kaMajola in Nelson Mandela Bay to promote Sekwanele, Chapter 8 album

Gospel giant Andile kaMajola of Durban is in Nelson Mandela Bay to promote his latest musical rendition, Sekwanele, Chapter 8, a 17 track album.

The visit to the metro municipality and the Eastern Cape where kaMajola of “uJeshova ungibiyele” fame admittedly gets his biggest support to date is part of his national tour to send a message of hope to South Africa through his exhorting and inspirational music drawn from scripture.

Recorded at Cut n’ Edit Studios in Johannesburg and produced by gospel whiz-kid Shadrack Ndlovu, the album is a mixture of kaMajola’s traditional gospel music, new contemporary sounds and ApoZion with a message for everyone. It is available in record stores countrywide.

“We wanted to ignite the spirits with this album. We wanted people to be blessed with the music,” said kaMajola, admitting however that the song Sekwanele has been used as a theme song in peace keeping campaigns and marches for social justice.

His Majesty King Goodwill Zwelithini and AmaXhosa Monarch Mpedulo Sigcawu are well-known supporters of kaMajola’s music. They both have copies of Sekwanele and believe in the message the song carries, a proudly kaMajola revealed.  

He is hoping the song would transcend borders and catapult him to international stardom for the Glory of God.

“The song Sekwanele, the Title Track of the album is inspired by many things including female and child abuse, drug abuse, unemployment, poverty, (poor) health, crime and very many other ills facing communities including road accidents,” Pastor kaMajola explained, adding that God was calling His people to trust Him to effect change in their lives and situations.

Asked why his music albums were chapters he retorted, “Writing music for me is a calling which I’d like to turn into publishing in the form of a book of music for the benefit of future generations.”

Pastor of All Nations Cathedral International Church, KaMajola visited Unhlobo Wenene FM, PE FM, the Herald, Daily Sun and Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Communications produced newspaper, Bay News during his short visit. 

Before coming to Nelson Mandela Bay, the multiple award-winning musician kaMajola went to Flagstaff, Mount Ayliff, Mthatha, East London and Port Alfred.
