Local Gospel artist Mama Africa to launch first DVD

Mama Africa has been singing since a young age.

Mama Africa, who is originally from Malawi, has been singing since a young age.

Her Sunday school teacher always asked her to sing a song.

“God put something in me and that is to minister His word through music,” said Mama Africa.

She also said it was a calling from God to compose a DVD of her CD.

The songs she sings on the DVD are the same as on the CD and include genres like rumba, kwaito and traditional.

Linley Macheso-Phiri, known as Mama Africa, from Boksburg North, will go on tour to launch her first gospel DVD, “Ndidalira Inu Yesu” (I rely/depend on you, Jesus).“People motivated me to make the DVD because my songs are so encouraging,” said Mama Africa.

Mama Africa writes and composes all the songs herself and draws inspiration from her pastor, husband, family and friends.

She would like to touch many lives through her music.

Linley Macheso-Phiri, known as Mama Africa, from Boksburg North, will go on tour to launch her first gospel DVD, “Ndidalira Inu Yesu” (I rely/depend on you, Jesus).
