Gospel singer Ephraim to tour USA and Europe
Since emerging on the local gospel industry just under four years ago with the hit album Limo Ndanaka, the Kalulushi-born crooner has established himself as one of the genre's most dynamic and sought-after artistes. The album heralded the arrival of a fresh sound and quickly propelled the young artiste into the nation's psyche.
Now the chart topping gospel singer is set to go for a four-month musical tour in Europe and United States of America starting next month. Ephraim told the Weekend Mail that he will be leaving for UK in July for a series of shows in different towns. He said he will be in the UK from July 7 to 27 before connecting to USA, where he is booked from August to October.
Ephraim said he will perform in a number of states in the USA, especially those states where he has performed before as he has popular demand. He has held international shows in African countries, America, Europe and Australia. This trip is a continuation to his dream to perform at international platforms. Meanwhile, Ephraim has said his movie titled Story of My Life is meant to share with and teach the people the difficulties of his life journey. The movie will bring out highlights of what he has gone through in difficult times of his life. Ephraim wants to show and teach people how to control their lives. The movie will show how people can find comfort in the Lord when they lose hope in their lives.
Ephraim, who has been at the helm of Zambian gospel, has several albums to his credit. Among them is Limo Ndanaka, which brought him to fame, Temba Baby, compilation Six years of Ephraim, Worship and Praise Volumes and Lekeni Iloke, currently on the market. Ephraim is also expected to engage more artistes to his label, Ephmutang Glory Music Studios so that they benefit from his skills. Ephraim, a composer and producer, has already engaged his sisters calling themselves “Ephraim Sisters” to the label. Ephraim’s music is promoted and distributed under Doxa Music. The artiste has won awards which include Ngoma Awards, Christian Arts Promotions and the Copperbelt-organised Mukuba Awards. He has topped the Sounds Investment sales charts too.
