Kamlesh Kagaba releases his third studio album – L.A.M.B. (Living All My Bars)

WHO IS KAMLESH KAGABA?

Patrick Kagaba a.k.a Kamlesh Kagaba is an East African Christian rapper and poet born and raised in Kenya by a Kenyan Mum and a Ugandan father. He began rapping at 16 years of age and started doing gospel rap in 2006 when he responded to the gospel and became a follower of Christ. Kamlesh Kagaba uses the Biblical sound as inspiration to his music ministry while making use of rap that allows for expression of his creative gift in a fun but thought provoking style to stir people from all generations to cultivate an intimate and meaningful relationship with God.

“MADLOVE MIXTAPE Vol.1”, a collaborative project with top gifted artistes across the Kenya in 2009 set an entry platform for him in the gospel music ministry. In 2011, he released his debut album “InDependence” which received incredible review ratings from top music industry players setting a platform that introduced him to the wider East African region. He toured Uganda and Tanzania. InDependence was themed on “Living in total surrender to God”. It featured hits such as “Its Okay”, “Changing the World”, “Mapangashua” & “Songa Mbele”

2014 was a defining moment in his life when he lost his mum. The experience served as a reminder of the frailty and temporal nature of human life; also, it inspired him to work on “Breaking News”, his sophomore album. The album was successfully released through a full live band concert on 13th December, 2015. The project contained inspirational hits such as “Mfalme” (featuring the Late Kaberere & Jaya), “Fika Bei”, “Nia Yako”, “Mwangaza” and “Frequency Yake” among others.

Kamlesh Kagaba has earned great respect among key music ministry and industry players due to rich content that speak to those in and those out of the Christian faith to live a life that edifies God and humanity. He has been nominated in the renowned Mwafaka Awards as a top Gospel Rap Artiste, Hip Hop Song of The Year. This talented rapper has performed alongside top global artistes such as Da T.R.U.T.H., Lecrae, Andy Mineo, Deitrick Haddon, The Ambassador, K.B., S.O and Trip Lee.

In 2017, he was elected as the first Chairman of the Kenyan Holy Hip-hop Association and is serving to see Kenyan Christian hiphop grow to greater heights as he takes part-time studies in Ministry at the East Africa Baptist School of Theology. Kamlesh Kagaba is a dedicated husband and father. He is a strong believer and advocates for the family institution and staying plugged to a local church.

WHAT IS L.A.M.B.?

L.A.M.B. is Kamlesh Kagaba’s third studio album, the acronym stands for “Living All My Bars”; a complete thought emphasizing the eminence of living out what we say especially as believers. The heart of the message aims to exhort and instruct the listener to put to practice what they proclaim.

L.A.M.B. is primarily based on:

  • Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, (Titus 2: 7&8)
  • I tell you, on the Day of Judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” (Matthew 12:36-37)

This masterpiece recording has some amazing features including Loso, a respected name in the Christian Hip Hop circles globally and top Christian rappers in the continent David Kalilani, Limoblaze, Courtney Antipas, Elandre, Rigga, Noel Nderitu, Tybe & Mohwaz.

L.A.M.B. strives to drive home the message of being TRUE TO SELF, GOD & HUMANITY by urging us to bear fruits that are consistent with the faith that we profess. Just as Matthew 7:16 says, “You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?”

WHAT PROBLEM DOES L.A.M.B. ADDRESS?

One of the key concerns is how it appears that the Gospel music scene is being defined and guided more by the music culture than Christ and the scriptures. This is also true in most career fields and society in general. Christians have become lukewarm in living out what we proclaim and preach. If Kenya’s population is 70% Christian, as statistics currently show, why does the character of this nation not match this statistic? Are we Christians by speech and name but actions and character the exact opposite?

What causes this disparity?

  • Lack of Discipleship [and accountability]
  • Pride [Lack of Humility]
  • Lack of Impact, togetherness with Churches, Vision.
  • Lack of commitment to the local Church &its mission.
  • Lack of sound teaching

OBJECTIVES OF L.A.M.B.

L.A.M.B. aims to:-

  • Put more emphasis on character development than just craft enhancement in music and ministry.
  • Enhance faithful handling of God’s word and establish a discipleship culture in the Gospel music scene for the sake of growth in the faith to effectively advance the Gospel.
  • Help uprising and established Christian musicians approach their music with biblical views and solutions in order to produce a systematic change in the community.

Using the above model, L.A.M.B. will spread the same message to other sectors of the society in a bid to create a more impactful Christian movement in the country and beyond.

This will be achieved through a myriad of media beyond the music album, namely; conferences, Workshops and Seminars, Tours/Concerts & Publications

All these will be geared towards:

  • Bringing a missional balance to our generation. ~ Matthew28; 18-20
  • Getting us to re-evaluate our hearts. ~ 2 Corinthians 13:5
  • Edifying, educating and equipping believers (starting with Gospel Musicians) ~ Ephesians 4:12
