Johannesburg - The Cross-Dete born Luke Ebenezer, rising Gospel star, launched his new offer on Sunday at Assemblies Of God Church in Ebony Park in Tembisa. As charity begins at home, the launch was held at his church in a way to show gratitude for the support he has received from the congregants since 2013 when he made an entry into music scenes.

Ebenezer said that he gained interests in music at his tender age and continued to nature it through Sunday school activities. Though he met many challenges along the way he kept it safe until he recorded his first debut album titled "Ebenezer" (2013) which was received with open hands especially in his hometown of Hwange. He is now well known by the hit songs like ‘Leza' and Ebenezer

Swithchbod learnt that he has also enjoyed support from his village and his music is being aired on Zimbabwe radio stations Matabeleland Gospel top 20 whereby his two hit songs are playing and doing very well.

"I have come back again with another Spirit filled album which I dubbed "Nsikuleki" which mean "I will not let you go until you bless me" My composition came from the word of God.The song ‘Nsikuleki is an extract from the story of Jacob. This new offer has 9 tracks and an instrumental one which makes it a 10 tracks album. I sing most of my songs in my mother tongue that is Chi-Tonga,"he said.

Ebenezer further told Switchbod Arts Magazine that he worked with Matsibitsibi Music production (SA) and M I Records in Hwange Zimbabwe. "Though I worked with two different music houses the tune is still intact, the message is still relevant and gaining momentum. The album consists of the following, Nsikuleki , Sekukaningi, Arise and Shine and Ebenezer in isiZulu version .I decided to do a Zulu version as per request by the legions of fan who loved the song even though they did not understand Tsonga language. Back to the track list: Ndi a Vharenda (Tshivenda ) "Kala mulinguwe" Leza wangu, well done, You deserve the glory and Nsikuleki (instrumental)

Swithcbod learnt there was a time when Luke was ill for a long time but still fought on to bring forth the album. He could not cease to thank God for his hand upon his life and keeping him going during the dark days of pains. He also extended his warm gratitude to AOG in Hwange for their unwavering support.

"They supported from day one even before I came to South Africa. I am a star in their eyes," he said with a glowing smile. "Not that am leaving out my brethren in Ebony, I am thankful for their support and teachings,'' concluded Ebenezer
