Lilongwe-based reggae musician Haxi Momba, well known for his Chibvumbulutso albums, has turned born again and is now into gospel music.
The reggae artist, who used to be in dreadlocks, said yesterday that time had come for him to serve God.
“I am now a born again Christian and so I want to serve God alone and so, from now on, I will be playing reggae gospel,” said the ‘Kufa Safelana’ star.
Other musicians who have dumped secular music for gospel music include Gwamba, Evans Meleka and Mlaka Maliro.
Momba, who has removed the dreadlocks, said he is committed to spreading God’s good news message.
“I did not have dreadlocks on religious grounds and, so, I had to remove them. Some might say I am doing this for money; that is not the case. It has to do with grace and I just didn’t make this decision in a day but it is a calling from God,” Momba said.
Momba said he congregates with Ambassador Christianity Ministry.
“I hope people will respect my decision but also continue to support me as I minister the word of God through music,” Momba said.
