Jitie Moyo - Stephen Kasolo
Kenyan gospel artist Stephen Kasolo recently released his hot new single dubbed ‘Jitie Moyo’. ‘Jitie Moyo’ is an upbeat gospel song in which Kasolo encourages brethren not to give up hope. To give context to his new song, Kasolo quotes the Holy Scripture from Job 14:7-9 which reads, ‘At least there is hope for a tree: If it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail. Its roots may grow old in the ground and its stump dies in the soil, yet at the scent of water it will bud and put forth shoots like a plant.’ The music video is simplistic yet creative featuring several dancers dancing as he delivers the word of God to the masses.
