Top Kenyan gospel musician and songwriter Pitson has dropped a new single dubbed ‘Mungu wa Eliya’.
‘Mungu wa Eliya’ is a Swahili phrase that loosely translates to ‘God of Elijah’, and is all about the powers of the Almighty God and what He is capable of doing.
‘Mungu wa Eliya’ is a typical worship song thanks to the beat, and the style used; where Pitson solos then a lady repeats the same verse.
Pitson has been off for quite some time, and this new release acts as a form of comeback.
Explaining the inspiration behind the song, Pitson noted that some time back, he and other members of a group called Friends of God sung the song, and they really saw the hand of God.
“If anyone was part of FOG (Friends of God) around 2008-2015, you know this song. We sang it and sang it and we honestly saw the Lord. Alishukisha moto for real. I have put the audio on youtube, (find the link on my bio) and it gives me a lot of good memories. Tag someone who was part of FOG,” he posted.
The song is timely and comes at a time when the country is battling the corona pandemic that has left thousand dead across the globe.
‘Mungu wa Eliya’ is a reminder that we have a God in heaven who is all powerful, and as such we should we go back to Him in prayer, and ask Him to save us from the pandemic.
