NCANDWENI Christ Ambassadors will next week release a new album.
The album titled ‘Munye Umlamleli’ has 12 songs and will be made available for retail as of next week; however, the exact day could not be disclosed.
Worth noting is that lately there has been an outcry from fans of the legendary group that they release one more album.
In response, the group dashed into the studio and their 15th studio production will be hitting the shelves next week.
The Timothy Myeni-led ensemble has won multiple accolades in and outside the country over the years and is by far one of the most loved Swazi groups in the neighbouring countries.
In 2009, the group won a South African Music Award (SAMA) for the ‘Best Selling Album’ and ‘DVD of The Year.’ That same year, they also bagged two gongs during the SABC Crown Gospel Music Awards ceremony in Durban.
Ncandweni Christ Ambassadors are popular for hits like ‘Christ Died for Me’, ‘Izulu ikhaya lami’ and ‘Bakhiphe Moses’ to mention only a few.
In November 2011, they performed in Lesotho at a show dubbed ‘Gospel Explosion.’
In July of that year, they completed a successful tour in the UK where they rocked gospel music lovers.
The group spent two weeks in Britain following an invitation by Christendom Pentecostal Church led by Reverend Niah N Mpofu of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
However, when sought for comment, Myeni requested to be contacted at a later time but his wife Sibhekile confirmed that the new album would be on retail as of next week.
However, Sibhekile could not be drawn to a concluded retail price as she said that it was a decision yet to be taken by her husband, bearing in mind production costs and all.
Ncandweni Christ Ambassadors is undoubtedly one of the most followed gospel music groups in the land.
This was evident during their brief performance at the Swazi Mobile Umlilo Crossover held at Mavuso on December 31, 2017.
Even though throngs of the group’s fans were rather disappointed in the 15 minutes the group had on stage, they were impressed with the performance and even asked for more, which could not be granted.
