My Selfie with The Faith DJ during the last holidays.
The are people we know in this world who inspire us and there are those who are in our own corner and more than inspire us.
Warning! This post is personal so if you do not like personal stuff, well just read for the sake of reading. lol. :)
The lady up there in that picture is not your everyday chick or whatever you call young ladies these days. Wait... she has all the attributes to be a Diva but she is not your usual divas. Well call her a slay Queen. But only with my permission, because... this lady right here is slaying everything iron ladies in the world can slay. Thank God I had to talk to her and know her, so I can claim I know her story, well somehow I do. If you do not know her story then listen to her new song as she reveals all her secrets bear and with nothing to hide.
She was in Malawi for Christmas holidays from her academics in Japan and she made it a point that we meet during that holiday. Well the result was the selfie up there. We also talked about my previous posts on depression and how she also wants to share her personal stories but she just does not have the courage? I do not think she used that word.
Someone is asking who is this lady?
Let me give you how her bio looked like in 2015. I said 2015 that's some 2 years ago.
This is a PhD Student in Economics currently in school in Japan.
She is Malawi's celebrated female gospel rapper. Angella Faith Lapuken is what they call her at work (Reserve Bank of Malawi before she took her leave for studies). The Faith DJ is a versatile, multi talented and passionate personality and that what we call her out here.
Talking of a versatile young lady with many talents, she won a dance competition in 2005 at Kamas Academy as a teenager, she was a semifinalist in a national Sprite Dance Competition in 2006 and formed a Dance crew “The Apocalypse” at Chancellor College in 2007 which performed in various programs on campus.
Faith also won 2nd Princess Miss Chancellor College 2008. She was the Music Coordinator for the Campus Fellowship and leading songs in her local assembly. Before being discovered she featured on a few other tracks with various Malawian artists including Mad vat, Mize-J, Yung B and Pastor E. Wait a minute, if you know that boy Martin PK a multi award winning Christ Embassy singer then you may admit that Faith dines with kings. She featured him in her previous song and has shared the stage with the Holy Spirit Star.
Watch their live performance with Martin PK below.
In 2011, she represented Malawi at the continental Miss University Africa. The Faith DJ does studio and live performances, various Christ Embassy Programs, hosts and co-hosts live and studio radio programs, radio adverts, She has extraordinary crowd appeal and a minister of God at the core.
Angella is dropping a new song and its video comes out the following week. I have had a chance of listening to it exclusivelly before it drops.
Her new song is titled Ride with you and will be available for downloads here from Wednesday, 24th January, 2018 and will then be in stores including Google, Spotify and Malawi Music for sale.
In this latest release she talks about her personal journey with God and her love for God and how despite all that we say is the "Love of God" as a people, she acknowledges His love for her as something that is personal. She promises to ride with GOD no matter what. This is what she has always told me to do every time we talk. She is a personal friend of mine and It is for this reason that I decided to take this song personal too.
The song was produced and mixed by TNO while the original beat was done by a French producer Francois Colombo.
Angella dropped me a message when she sent me the song and she said, "It is my prayer that you at least like the song lol".

I love you Angella and keep inspiring a lot of young people ad its my prayer that your song blesses a lot of people.
