Upcoming worship leader Chryso Ndasingwa, is one of the musicians that are steadily gaining popularity on the country’s gospel music scene. Though he started his professional music career barely two years ago, his songs like “Mubwihisho” and “Wakinguye Ijuru” have moved gospel music lovers in no small way, and he seems ready to churn out more. Ndasingwa first introduced himself to the gospel music scene in 2020 during the Covid-19 lockdown by making covers of local and international gospel songs and sharing them on YouTube. A few months later, he released his first song, “Mubwihisho,” (translated: In The Hiding Place), based on Psalm 91. Talking about the faithfulness of God and His mighty power to protect His people, the song slowly attracted admiration from many Christians and it is arguably his most famous track with tens of thousands of views on YouTube. He followed it up with more songs like “Niwe” and “Ndakwihaye” and more as he continued to stabilise his stand in professional music. Last month, he was one of the key artistes that headlined the ‘Igicaniro Concert,’ a new initiative that was recently launched by local event organisers RG Consult. With such, Ndasingwa seems poised for more and more great things. The New Times recently had an interview with him where he shared more on his music journey as well as his life’s story. He describes himself as “a praise and worship leader, as well as a gospel songwriter.” He was born and raised in Nyamirambo, in a catholic family and he used to attend Catholic Church as a child, but currently, he prays from New Life Bible Church. Ndasingwa is a teacher by profession, and holds a diploma in teaching Social Studies. He is also currently pursuing a Bachelors degree in Theology and Christian Leadership at the Africa College of Theology (ACT). He says his singing roots are from his family, because his family members used to sing as he grew up. “My family used to sing, we always sang morning devotions at home, for example. When I started growing up, I joined some choirs where I not only sang but also became a leader,” he told The New Times. “At the age of 17 I started to play guitar and piano. A friend taught me a little, but I could sit and teach myself with the help of YouTube tutorials. After, I started to teach others,” he added. Currently, he has two Extended Plays (EP) which were both released this year. The first EP is called “Wakinguye Ijuru” released in January and the second is “Wahozeho,” released in May. He plans to use his talent to impact lives in the community, especially the youth. Next year, Ndasingwa hopes to organise a big concert to launch his songs, and after that do a music tour in Europe, the US and Canada. He also dreams of making collaborations with famous singers like Nigeria’s Sinach and Nathaniel Bassey.
