Maleyi is from Francistown and commands huge support from the country, especially among Apostles members.

“Going there is not only about doing a concert but it’s about forging a strong gospel relationship between these two countries,” he said.

The gospel pioneer said he was not bothered about the gap in the music industry between the two countries and added that his aim was to make Botswana an established gospel country.

Maleyi, who is also the Pastor of The Twelve Apostle Church of Alfa, said he was worried about the rapid growth of piracy. He urged the government to come up with a solution to the illegal duplication of CDs, which is tarnishing the music industry.

The gospel singer has released 11 albums since his music career started 14 years ago. The multi-lingual singer sings in Kalanga, Setswana, Ndebele, English and Sotho.

Isaac Maleyi will be also promoting his latest album ‘Moses Ekabona Denjana Lethutha Moto’. Sydney Mnguni, his manager, said the music Maleyi sings had a strong a message and gives people hope.
