Firm Faith, an a cappella gospel outfit  has recently taken its gospel music of faith and hope to Malawi, where it has embarked on an invitational tour of the Southern Africa country to preach the gospel through music.

The group’s manager, Bradley Mberi, said his group’s seven-day tour will give Firm Faith an opportunity to teach Christian values of joy, happiness, peace and love which are some of the main messages in their music.

He added that Firm Faith travelled to Blantyre (Malawi’s second largest city) with all the ten members of the group. “We were invited by a Malawian preacher who heard us sing in Harare and was inspired by our music that he invited us to Malawi to tour, share and inspire his counterparts in Malawi through our music.


Bradley added that the visit to Malawi gave his group an opportunity to market Zimbabwe through Christian music and also to teach other youths how drugs and alcohol-related problems, which are commonly faced by youths the world over can be avoided if one prays and listens to Christian music.

Bradley also said Firm Faith would  take advantage of its week-long tour to hold a cappella workshops for youths. 

Performances were scheduled to take place at churches, orphanages, hospitals, schools and communities .

Firm Faith is an a cappella music group largely comprised of students from different learning institutions in Zimbabwe and also members of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church who take time off their studies to preach through music.

Since its formation in 2005, Firm Faith has performed its music in different parts of Zimbabwe and abroad managing to record its hit album “Maria” in 2007 and “Tinevimbo” which was released in June this year.

Commenting on challenges the group is facing, Bradley said Firm Faith had no money, since most members of the group were students. “Our main challenge is sustaining our membership as most members are still in school. We have two student doctors, one student nurse, one O- Level and one A-Level student. The rest have recently graduated from their learning institutions. We do not charge for our performances.”
