 MBABANE -– The gospel of God teaches compassion. The Association of Christian Artists in Swaziland (ACASWA) has shown their humanitarian side by adopting a refugee from Burundi, Mathoucella Nduwimana, who is a guitarist and gospel music artist under their wing.

ACASWA signed Nduwimana last year after they discovered his talent in a church service and they have been incorporating him in their projects and assisting him in the release of his singles. The association  has taken it upon themselves to guide the artist as he tries to manoeuvre in the country and spreading God’s work though music.

Like other refugees, Nduwimana is based at Mpaka Refugee Camp and he has been staying there since he arrived in the country in 2015.
Nduwimana stated that he is not new in music and he is honoured to be recognised by a nationally recognised body which guides gospel music artists.

“I ventured into music in 2011 while I was still in Burundi and my music career got disrupted while I was on transit. I am grateful to ACASWA that my music is shaping up again,” he said. He did not want to go into details of his refuge status only citing the fact that he had to leave the war torn country.

Nduwimana brings a new flavour of gospel music in the country as his work is infused with reggae and dancehall sounds.
So far, the Burundian native has released three tracks since he has been signed under ACASWA and the tracks, which do not have videos, are titled ‘We Gonna Survive’, ‘I Was Lost’ and ‘I Give You My Soul’. These tracks are part of his album titled ‘Jericho Walls Down’ which will be released in June.
