Being a born again Christian is tough because ordinary people are judging and expecting the Christians to live their lives in a certain way, the young gospel artist Luyanda Tomose (29) from Site B has said.

Tomose said in 2012 he changed his life after accepting Christ. This, after more than seven years in the music industry.

“I started music in 2005 and that time I was still in Johannesburg. I was singing kwaito and rap music. In 2012 I became a born again Christian and that is where I decided to change my music and sing gospel,” said Tomose. In July last year, Tomose released his latest CD Am not ashamed.

The album has 11 songs

He said it wasn’t difficult for him because his family members were already saved. “I’m in a choir at church and I ensure that I participate in almost all church activities in an effort to assist and empower our congregants,” he said.

“The title says it all about me because I’m not ashamed being a Christian. People were saying a lot of things when I was changing my life trying to discourage me but they couln’t.

“I believe in God. In whatever I’m doing I always put God first,” said Tomose.

He described his album as having a collection of praise and worship songs.

He said he is promoting his album by performing at taxi ranks, weddings and also at special events.

He said his album is R50 and anyone wants an album or to book him can contact him on 0812377749.
