Gospel sensation Maranatha Goroh has once again come out with a banger of a praise song. Launching her latest offering titled ‘There Is Hope” on her thirtieth birthday this past Saturday evening, the Nigerian born Namibian star is well on her way to becoming a force to be reckoned with in the gospel genre.
After a soulful performance, Maranatha explained that the song is dedicated to everyone that has gone through hurt, loss and pain. “The video is geared to bring hope in a time of uncertainty especially those affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, it depicts the situation in American and African countries during this time,” she said.
Maranatha, who was surrounded by her closes friends and family including her father, Pastor Haruna Goroh and mother Titilayo Goroh and sister as well as artists from the NAM Gospel staple and surprise appearances from Swart Baster and Arafath, was seemingly whelmed and excited for the new song and is looking at touring with it.
The music video is currently available on YouTube and with two Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAS) under her belt, her trajectory to the top and growth is undeniable under the tutelage of legendary Namibian gospel singer DNAFF.
“She has grown into a phenomenal God-fearing woman and I am proud of her journey. The next thing she needs to do is get married,” said DNAFF. He wished her well as a fellow artist and older brother (Speaking a metaphorical sense).
Asked by a member of the media whether she is part of the DNAFF’s music label, Maranatha said she is not signed and might consider going to his label, but for now, she is happy working with the Nam Gospel group.
She also added her two cents to about the current SGBV protests currently happening in Namibia saying that men should be more present in the fight and that she supports the movement.
