Sister Bela Makaya wants more space for gospel singers

Luanda – Sister Bela Makaya said Wednesday in Luanda that she wanted more spaces and opportunities for gospel singers to present, promote and publicize their works.

Speaking to ANGOP about the current state of gospel music in the country, Sister Bela Makaya acknowledged that the movement is growing, although it lacks more opportunities and spaces for singers, especially new talents, to show their creations.

According to the singer, the gospel style, compared to other musical genres, has had fewer opportunities, a situation that discourages the class.

She seized the occasion to inform that she is to release this year a new album entitled Nzola (Love).

This CD, she said, counts on the participation of the musician Guy Destino, besides other singers of the gospel style.

The singer was born in the northern province of Uige. She began singing in choirs of the Catholic Church, but it was ten years ago in the Petencostal Church that she began her solo career.

She released her first album entitled Paz em Angola (Peace in Angola) in 2013.
