Born in Zambia, the “street preacher” as he is sometimes called, has been a vessel of worship for the past two decades alongside stars like Mechanic Manyeruke, Freedom Sengwayo, Jordan Chataika and Jonathan Wutawunashe paving the way.
Now celebrating 20 years and counting, the musician has released 11 albums that include Tariro, Freedom Rugare reflections of a street preacher, Indestructible, My Home: Psalms of Street Preacher, Diary of a Street Preacher: I Worship You, Unstoppable, Tidings of love, Tamiriria Legacy 1610: A Rhythm, Worship, & Praise Experience, among others.
He has shared the stage with top international gospel acts including Kirk Franklin, Dietrick Haddon, Ron Kenoly, Israel Houghton, Andrea Crouch, Aaron Rimbui, Kanji Mbugua and Ephraim Mutalange.
The juggernaut muso believes that gospel music is the voice of God that should be understood by all nations, ethnicity, personality, history and cultures in all languages. Gospel music, he adds, should be a powerful tool in provoking the presence of God for everyone to know and receive salvation regardless of their age, nationality or race.
Meanwhile, to celebrate his fiftieth born day, Pastor G has roped in OneHeart Worship and Tasha Place for his new song, Versace neBhachi. He described the song as “a song of hope in trying times”.
The song comes with an accompanying video.
