Away from his energetic performances and moving secular music, Ykee Benda is a Born-Again Christian and he has a gospel music album set to be released soon.
The lyrics in his first major song titled Farmer left so much to ponder about what kind of artist Wycliff Tugume a.k.a Ykee Benda had set out to be.
Since then, the Mpaka Records CEO has redefined his music and matured his lyricism but he does not own a single gospel song yet – despite being so much of a believer in God.
Ykee Benda goes to pastor Lubuulwa Emanuel’s Friends Of Christ Church in his hometown of Kireka.
He regards himself as a very spiritual person who lets God take the lead in his life. He travels from Munyonyo to Kireka every Sunday (if he didn’t work till late hours on Saturday) to pray.
While appearing on MC Ibra’s Wolokoso Extra show, Ykee Benda revealed that despite being such a believer, he doesn’t have any gospel song released as yet.
He however stated that he has an entire gospel album already worked on in studio but it pends release because he has not yet felt it is the right time to do so.
I don’t have a single gospel song out yet. I have a full album of gospel songs however but they pend release because I want to follow my heart. My heart says it’s not yet the right time.Ykee Benda
Ykee Benda will hold his maiden concert at Kampala Serena Hotel on 29th March.
