Having been to hell and back, former Kleptomaniax rapper Collins Majale aka Collo, knows so well what the two worlds can offer.
He has confessed his troubled past; alcohol, drugs, porn, and masturbation, and now, having seen the light and followed the narrow path, the evangelist has a prophetic word for all who care to hear him.
“God will not allow his name be ashamed. A new dispensation is coming when gospel music will go back to what it used to be. God is cleaning the house and anyone, any ‘gospel artiste’, who is trying to compromise this clean-up will be wiped. In fact, the clean-up has started,” he told Standard Entertainment and Lifestyle during an exclusive interview.
“There has been a group in the new generation of gospel artistes that has been joking with God’s name. They have normalised sin on the pulpit; sex, alcohol, drugs…They are confusing the many young people who see them as role models. This is abomination. God’s vengeance is coming down. It will hit you hard,” the gospel rapper who is also in the process of completing his new music project warned.
Asked about the timing of the prophecy, Collo said God had spoken to him before the sign was on the wall, a time when many popular gospel artistes have backslid, denounced their stand, and moved to secular music.
He said the fire of God would not spare them, adding that even in secular, they won’t last long.
“I don’t want to mention names as everyone understands who I am talking about. There is a time when gospel music in the country was respected. When God used to speak to the generation through the ministry and deeds of those who were called by his name.
“Then came another group that was more interested with the hype, the showoff, the swag, the women, the cars, the money, the awards…God has dealt with them. They will all go and in the process God will raise a generation of artistes who stand for his holiness,” the Conquered singer declared.
Collo quit drugs and alcohol in 2015 before releasing his Bazokizo hit in 2016 when it became clear that he was a changed man. He became a family man and kept off the public limelight till the following year when he made it public that he had decided to serve God for the rest of his life.
