Uniting Africa through music

LIMPOPO – The album, released under 4GK Music Production and Event Management, consists four songs which Kgatla said is sure to have fans singing along.

He said his main inspiration for the album was Africa and the current state of affairs across the continent. “We are plagued with news headlines of violence, crime and war wreaking havoc in our society. It then came to me that Africa desperately needed to seek God and unite as one continent. The Word of God tells us that if we humble ourselves, pray, seek God’s face and turn from our evil ways; He will hear us and heal our land in 2 Chronicles 7:14. The aim of the album is to spark unity among all Africans and the desire to turn to God to help us on our way,” he said.
Kgatla has been in the music industry the early 1980s. “Although I have not been in the mainline media for some time, I have still been actively involved in music over the years, be it mentoring or performing. My main reason for breaking away from mainstream was to focus on my ministry. I released my debut album in 1982 titled Etla go Jesu for which I was awarded artist of the year in 1983 with Radio Lebowa (now known as Thobela FM). In 1983 I released my second album, A reyeng legodimong, for which I was again awarded artist of the year in 1984 with Radio Lebowa. Thereafter in 1986 and 1993 I released another two albums, O Johana o ya Balake and Ba chreste tshepegang.”
He told BONUS his goal is to spread the gospel through his music, encourage people to come back to God, and to inspire the youth to use their God-given talents to spread the gospel.
“The album has been a work in progress for a few years and all the songs are composed by me. On the vocals, I worked with my children who are also musicians. Their group is called The 4GK. On production, we worked together with a producer Kgaogela Tikae Mabalane,” he said.
