After almost a decade of great passion and unceasing zeal for gospel reggae, the Mzuzu based gospel reggae star Josiah Mwale AKA King J has now come to limelight with his second gospel reggae album: Mkwiyo Wamulungu. Cutting across social political and economic issues the album still maintains its central gospel massage in tracks like; No reverse, Tchimo lalowa mu fashion and I was lonely among other creams. The thirty year old producer is said to have done the whole album by himself in his King J records studio which also aims at grooming juvenile artists as it is his golden dream in the artistic career. The gospel icon has confirmed that the much awaited gospel thunderstorm album is set to launch this year though he is not précised on the dates citing some financial challenges and his great effort to procure self-owned band equipment to be used in lives performances as he focuses on touring Malawi to share his appetizing talent. “I believe that by the grace of God everything will be ready and set soon and I will reach my fans with the best of King J, Am much passionate for reggae gospel and am sure there is a wider audience eagerly waiting for the same, that’s why I cannot give up but do my best. In my studio am geared to promote fellow artist too by giving them a chance of affordable payments for productions as well as assisting them sharpen their ideas in art work wherever possible to boost up the art industry in Malawi and the world.” This second album by King J coming after four years of silence since he dropped his first album in 2014 and sounds a well baked art work.
