GOSPEL singer Ephraim, who has made it a habit of releasing a new album at the end of each year in recent times, is not about to end that practice it seems.
The Son of Africa has just released a new album titled No Situation which is a follow-up on his Mulecita Ifipya project.
The new 13-track album will be launched on New Year’s Eve at the Copperbelt University (CBU) in Kitwe.
“I have put it upon my heart that I should be producing new albums at the end of each year,” the Teti Ntwishike singer told the Weekend Mail in Lusaka.
The album, which was produced in different studios including Ben Blazer and Vintage Studios and where backing instrumentals were provided by the Elect and One Generations bands, has songs like Kalenga Wandi, The More You Wait, My God is Bigger, the title-track itself and Luse Lwenu.
Ephraim says the title-track of the album is a revelation from God.
“No situation is a revelation; I pray it touches and blesses you as it has blessed me,” he says.
Ephraim wrote all the songs on the album apart from one which was written by Don, an up-and-coming musician under Christ Embassy Church. He features Jeff and Saint, newly signed gospel musicians from Manasseh’s Sunset Studios.
“I believe this album will uplift many souls. It has both local and international feel. I am looking forward to launching this project, which will touch many souls,” he says.
Ephraim is hoping that his fans will turn up for the launch of the album and buy original copies.
“For once, I just want to give back to my hometown where I was brought up from and where everything started,” he says. “The launch is free and anyone is invited to come and experience His [God’s] grace.”
