Lilongwe, October 18, 2018: One of Malawi's top gospel musicians based in Blantyre, Stevie ‘Wazisomo’ Muliya has bounced back with a new single track titled 'Moto' after five years of silence in the music circles. 

Muliya has disclosed this to Malawi News Agency (Mana) in an interview that the new released song produced by Madela of Classic Records in Blantyre has been done in a house style to unlock his way to his second album.

"The track has featured kids on the chorus, making it to be one danceable piece but suitable for all ages," Muliya said.

He said the new released 'Moto' track explains how dangerous children of God are in as much as heaven’s power is concerned.

Muliya said Moto, which means Fire is a symbol of light, authority and protection from danger as well as victory, so he says that this song will open eyes of children of God to realise that they are dangerous and that it is time not to allow any evil to take authority over their lives.

Highlighting more about his song, the self-styled Wazisomo who is also famous as Mr. Grace, said the new released 'Moto' track previews that enemies or any wickedness has no authority and power to tamper with the children of God.

"In psalms 104:4, the Bible tells us that our God is a consuming fire and He also surrounds us with the same fire. It also says that God made us to be that fire, so that is the content of the song," he disclosed.

He said he tried as much as possible to find a producer who could not dilute or divert his danceable beats music style with a powerful message. Noting that this is what makes his music unique with lyrics extracted from the Bible which makes his track pure gospel.

Muliya is well known in the music industry with the tracks such as; 'Mulinane cholinga', 'Chaka chobwezeretsa' and 'Ndizotheka' among others, which were included in his Zisomo album released in 2013 and launched in 2014 at Robins Park in Blantyre.

Asked about his silence in the music business, Wazisomo attributed it to academic commitment revealing that, he had to concentrate much on his degree program in journalism at the Polytechnic of the University of Malawi.

"Indeed, I have taken a very long time to come up with a new song. Five years of break is not a joke, but finally here I am, you can agree with me school requires more concentration because of assignments and course work," explained the Ndirande-Safalao based artist-cum-preacher.

He added that he was also needed to take his time to listen to God as to what kind of message should he bring through his songs.

Mr. Grace has been seen on stage as one of the most active and live actors, a situation that has made gospel music lovers naming him as a stage wizard (Stage Wizie).

However, he said his new album called 'Game Changer' will be out soon by the end of this year, and among other featured artists include Shammah Vocals, Saxes and Dr. Ethel Kamwendo.

"This album will be one of my best albums in as far as gospel music is concerned," he assured.
