Gospel singer Kamlesh Kabaga’s new album is more than personal: ‘It’s thematic’

Gospel singer Kamlesh Kabaga has been through a lot the past six or so months. In fact, he has been through so much that the only way he could fully tell his story was through an album.

And he did.

The singer has just released his new album dubbed “Ngori To Glory” which breaks down his 2019 arrest in which he was wrongfully accused of working with G4s guards to steal Ksh 72 Million from an ATM in Nairobi.

The album is so personal that the singer has a defined way of describing it whenever asked to elaborate more.

“It’s thematic. Personal and thematic,” the singer told KenyanVibe.

“I took time to write it because it gives a very deep insight of what I went through. How my family felt. Having a baby who is just a few months old and you find yourself in such a position is tormenting.”

Kabaga profoundly speaks about the arrest, being thrown in jail by DCI detectives and social media demanding his release thereafter in his lead single “Noma Kubwa” which is already out with a video.

“A group came in and without even questioning, took me and threw me in their car boot. They claimed I was in hot soup but I didn’t understand why,” he sings.

“Though DCI blurred my face, media quickly labeled me as criminal,” he added.

“But God was handling my case and ensured that I’ll be okay. I’m also thankful social media defended me and demanded my release. I couldn’t believe how much love and support they showed because someone wanted to use me as a sacrificial lamb.”

Other songs in the album include; “Ndimu Tamu”, “Zusha Nao” and “Agape Love”, and features artists such as Noel Nderitu, Manolo and Proud Refuge.

It’s going for Ksh 500 and comes with five free books alongside other merchandise such as hoodies, bags and Tshirts that fans can order separately.
