“I want to give what God has put in my heart,” says fast-rising artiste Sharon Gatete

Young female worshipper, Sharon Gatete, is working inexhaustibly to give out what God has put in her heart through music, as she says.

With just two months since she launched solo music, Gatete is considered one of the talented young artistes that could break into international ranks in future, and she proved just that when she released her first two songs (Umukunzi and Nzategereza).

The 22-year-old singer is a graduate of Nyundo School of Music and Arts and has been worshipper with local gospel group, Kingdom of God Ministries since 2014. She now pursues her Bachelor of Arts in Music at DayStar University in Nairobi.

Gatete is set to host her first live recording to record her debut audio-visual album titled, ‘Nzategereza’, on Thursday, August 3, 2023, at l’ Espace in Kacyiru, in the vicinity of Kigali Public Library from 7pm to 10 pm.

The album will be composed of eight songs such as Inkuru Nziza, Ibuka, Rwanda Shima Imana, Ntutinye among others.

During press time, Gatete was busy with final preparations, and she revealed that she is ready to deliver an authentic performance.

“I am ready for the concert. I believe God will speak to people through the message in the songs,” she noted.

Gatete explained that she was pushed to host as a result of requests from the public who fell in love with her music talent.

“People enthusiastically welcomed my music. As I prepare to go back to school in Nairobi and stay there for almost ten months, I received many requests asking me to organise a live show and meet some of my music lovers,” she added.

Gatete’s songs focus on God’s love as well as calling people to come to Christ as the only way, truth and source of life.

It is expected that Gatete will go back to Kenya next month, September 7 and return to Kigali after almost a year.

In a way to support Gatete’s music career, everyone is required to respectively donate Rwf 5,000, Rwf 10,000 and Rwf 15,000 for a couple.
