Australia based Zimbabwean singer, Tarisai Kunashe has offered her endorsement for the award winning Ghanaian artist, Morris Makafui’s new Single ‘Edzebubu’.

‘Edzebubu’ which actually means ‘He Is Wealthy Of Honour’, is a song of appreciation and confession of the transformation brought about by an encounter with Jesus.

In the song, just as it is recorded in the Bible on several occasions and even in our times, the preaching of the Gospel is a Jesus encounter affair where the blind see, the lame walk, there is total transformation and most importantly, lives are saved.
