Young gospel artist Ayanda Ntanzi is on a quest to promote his second album titled Priestly Worship, which he released last year December.

In this album, Ntanzi has worked with the likes of Dumi Mkokstad and the upcoming vocal artist, Nomandla Ntshinsthi­.

Ayanda (25), born in Ozwathini, in KZN, is a law student at the University of KZN, with a dream of sharing the word of God through Gospel music.

He told City Vision that he never thought of becoming a musician until 2010, when he was saved and felt that he could use his voice in a ministry.

He has been in the City for almost a week to meet his fans and promote the album­.

“I arrived in Cape Town last Sunday and I will leave on Thursday. I attended the Breaking Bread event hosted by Sizwe where I got to engage and socialise with music my supporters,” said Ntanzi.

His first album, released in 2015, titled Udumo earned him two award nominations for ‘Best New Comer” at the Crown Gospel Awards and for ‘Best Urban Contemporary Gospel” at the MetroFM Awards.

“I come from a family of singers and I have been singing all my life but up until 2010, I gained a better understanding and established a relationship with Christ which I felt I had to share with the world through my singing,” he said.

He recalls being discovered by Nqubeko Mbatha who also happens to be his mentor and one of the people he looks up to.

Mbatha gave Ayanda his first break after seeing him perform.

Afterwards, the former invited Ntanzi to perform on the Gospel Classics show in 2014.

Ayanda has been nominated for the African Gospel and Media Awards (Agma) for ‘Breakthrough Artist of Excellence’. People can look out for Ntanzi in the Spirit of Praise DVD performing alongside artists like Benjamin Dube, among others.

He will also be performing at the Encounter Concert on Friday 10 August and will be sharing the stage with the likes of Don Moen, Marvin Sepp and Sinach.

The album is available in all stores and online. Emial bookings­@­royalpriest.co.za
