Two well known gospel musicians, Gwamba and Onesmus, have denied any involvement in Grace Chinga’s mysterous death on Wednesday night at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH).
The duo was responding towards social media claims that they have a hand in Chinga’s sudden death. On Thursday, Braveheart Media Group, made a shock revelation that Gwamba and Onesmus once did a song called Grace is gone:
-I need no ur grace
-I need no fate
–Its ur grace Gone
–en my Rise is near
-Chisomo Chanu chikunditChinga
-Pulofiti show mi urs Gwamba
-Ill Mee Nut -am just bhobho
-Killy Grace, Koz its Gone
-redeem Sam Boww
-Take their Grace
Following this revelation, Gwamba told this publication that he had great respect for the deceased no wonder he postponed his Alleluya album launch.
“I had great respect for Grace Chinga and her death shocked me that is why I postponed my album launch in order to pay my last respect for the fallen hero,” he said.
On his part, Onesmus said he was shocked to hear reports linking him to the death of Malawi’s gifted gospel musician. “I was shocked to read all sorts of stuff on the social media but Grace’s death came as a shock to me.
May She Rest well,” he said. Braveheart Media Group claims that the artist recorded the song before joining the gospel industry sometime back.
Chinga will be buried today at HHI Cemetery but a memorial service in honor of the late musician will be held at Robins Park in the morning.
Her death shocked millions of Malawians who took to facebook in order to pay tribute to the fallen hero.
Meanwhile, Music Association of Malawi (MAM) has denied allegations that the deceased’s casket has been provided by Prophet Shepherd Bushiri.
The late Chinga, 38, is survived with three children.
