Clergyman releases debut album

Khahliso Khama

MASERU — Local clergyman and Moafrica FM presenter, Ben Mosala, last week released his first solo gospel album.

The 12-track album is titled Ntate Lerato la hao (The love of God).

Reverend Mosala, popularly known as Reverendo, told  Xpress People that the album is targeted at youths and is meant to give them hope in times of distress.

The album, which was released last Friday, has already received generous airplay on Moafrica and South Africa’s Leseli FM radio stations.

“I have always been a member of gospel groups and I never thought of going solo.

“But through the encouragement I received from my listeners, I decided to make my own album,” Mosala said.

Mosala said the release of the album had opened his eyes to the workings of the music industry.

“Going solo is the best experience I have ever had in my career as a musician,” Mosala said.

“Being able to work on my own project from the first to the last track without any hustle is like a dream come true and now I am looking forward to reaping the most from it.”

He said the experience had transformed him into a stronger individual.

Mosala said coming up with the album was not easy.

There were various trials along the way but God was always beside me to guide me, he said.

“I encountered challenging moments but I believe those were just trials that God wanted me to face in order to make me stronger,” Mosala said.

When he is away from the studio Mosala is a reverend at the Apostolic First Church Lesotho.

Mosala hosts a talk show on Moafrica, Tšetšetha, and two other gospel shows Matšeliso and Re nt’sa lephola.

“I have always appreciated the art of singing and I knew that one day I would reach out to the people through music,” he said.

Ntate Lerato la hao is an invitation to the young people to turn to the Lord because he is the only reliable friend they can have in their lives.

“It encourages the young and old to hold on to life and be strong throughout the days of their life,” he said.
