STARTING out in the music industry at the tender age of 17, Kwaku Asare-Jumah, who is originally from Ghana and now living in Pietermaritzburg, has dedicated his life and talent to Christian/gospel music.

A music producer at Destiny Studios as well as music director for his wife, Nozipho Asare-Jumah — who will be performing live this Friday, July 5 — Jumah functions as a producer, music director, pianist and occasional singer.

“It all started in church when I began as a music director whose responsibilities included arranging vocals for the music team. Through that I found out I could also sing and was occasionally asked to render items to our church choir,” said Jumah.

Jumah, who has been singing for the last 12 years, said it took a lot of courage to begin singing.

He said he had become very comfortable behind the scenes, ensuring that everything sounded perfect and not being recognised as a singer was something he was fine with.

Influenced by Don Moen and Reverend Joseph Aryee, who was his worship leader when he was still a young pianist of just 13, Jumah said gospel music is the only genre of music that he feels can heal the sick, bring deliverance to those that are bound and please the Almighty.

“Bringing pleasure to God is my highest priority before anything else,” proclaimed Jumah.

Influenced by international artists such as Fred Hammond and William McDowell, Jumah said music is his calling and is one of the many ways he uses to express his love and gratitude to God.

Co-writing some of the songs on his wife’s album such as Trust and Believe, Ufanelwe Udumo and Your love is a Wonder, Jumah has also produced for artists such as Duane Jonkers, Charlotte Zondi and Lesley Tebane, who was recently nominated at the Ingoma Awards for Best Gospel Single.

Jumah and his wife will be performing songs of her album, Trust and Believe, at Solid Rock from 7 pm on July 5.
