The well-known gospel singer, Marubini Rahulani, popularly known as Maru, released her seventh gospel album titled “Uya londa Yehova”, which has already proven to be a favourite among local community members.

Rahulani, the leading vocalist of the Family Centre Church choir in Madombidzha village, says the main message of the album is repentance, hope for Christians, grace, love, and the goodness of God. The eight-track album consists of songs such as “Tshedza”, “Mulisa”, and “Funa Yeso Mbula”.

Rahulani’s music career started at an early age. Unlike many local artists who used to sing in the church and were mentored by their peers, Rahulani said she used to sing in the streets while playing traditional games such as “duvheke”, which have similar rules to cricket. “I remember that one of my neighbours was astounded by the melodies I could produce. She suggested that I should come and sing at the church. Unfortunately, I did not take heed of what she said since none of my family members used to go to church,” said Rahulani.

Rahulani said that she was working on a strategy to share her musical knowledge with the youth. “I will engage in a talent search and conduct music workshops around Limpopo during the school holidays. My immediate dream is to establish a recording company that will help to unearth, mold, and give an opportunity to rural youths to realise their music potential.”

She is concerned to see that so many young people consume liquor or use drugs. She feels that, with God in a person’s life, using sources such as drugs to be happy is not necessary.

Rahulani reckons the music industry is heading for a dead end because of piracy. “There are no more music shops in town because they could not compete with these ruthless thieves who sell our music at next to nothing. Many in this industry have lost their jobs, and artists are now at the receiving end as their music is found on pavements and sold for as little as R10, with the money going to the pirates,” she said.
