Gospel ministers Jado Sinza, Zoravo gear up for ‘redemption’ live concert

By Sandrine Twiringire

Tanzanian gospel minister Zoravo arrived in Rwanda on Monday 11 March to grace Jado Sinza’s highly anticipated ‘redemption’ live concert, which is scheduled to take place on Sunday, March 17 at Camp Kigali starting from 4 pm. 

Zoravo, the Ameniona song hit maker, is coming to Rwanda for the first time.  He started music at a young age and was mentored by his mother. His song ‘Ameniona’ has been popular in Rwanda as it has been widely sung in churches and featured in gospel shows at local radio stations.

As the singers addressed the media on Tuesday, March 12, Zoravo described his invitation as a privilege he can’t take for granted.

“I am very super excited for this coming Sunday and I believe I will see the goodness of God. I normally do not take these chances for granted, to be recognised and invited to come to Rwanda is by grace. I was very excited because it was my first time to minister in Rwanda,” he said.

The guest singer described his ministering journey as one where he has learned a lot and is thankful to God for His grace and love.

He noted that collaboration is one of the strategies of advancing the kingdom of God, for when you join hands together and share grace, the kingdom of God well advances.

Sinza supplemented his sentiments noting that the upcoming concert is an opportunity to celebrate ‘our redemption as children of God and also sharing the good news to those who do not know about the grace of God.’

“Jesus died on the cross to save me and you, to set us free from the bondage of Satan. When I look at the Cross, I find that it’s where we get our new life. This inspires me to proclaim and spread such good news through music,” he added.

 The concert will be an opportunity to unveil his album “Inkuru y’Agakiza” and conduct a live recording for his new tracks.

It will also feature other local gospel musicians, including Narada vocal band, True Promises Ministries, and Bosco Nshuti.  

A visit to Kigali Genocide Memorial 

On Wednesday, March 13, 2024, Zoravo visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial site to honour the victims and learn from the recorded and documented history about the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi.

“I read a lot about the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, but today I witnessed the tragedy with my own eyes. Rwanda was very chocked, but it was amazing to see what the country looks like 30 years later. We thank God for enabling Rwandans to achieve reconciliation and unity and for the remarkable progress of the country. What happened in Rwanda should be a lesson to the world, and should never again be applied to Genocide anywhere, because we are all equal and created in the image of God,” he noted.
