Music superstar Professor shocked many when he revealed the title of his new album to be “Composed by Jesus Christ”. The Kalawa Jazmee signed act has now spoken on his decision to name his album after Jesus.
“There is something there when I write. I don’t make music for fun. I want to tell a message. People always ask me how I write songs that touch people and I honestly believe that it is Jesus. My music, my album…they are produced by Jesus. I could have written a song but I decided to dedicate my album to it,” he told Tshisa Live.
“I have put so much of Jesus into my life and someone shouldn’t judge how I praise. It is not up to them to decide that. I want to honour Jesus with this album and that is it,” Professor added.
He also confirmed the album wasn’t meant to be a gospel album. “It has a lot of genres and sounds in it. Something to make you think, something to make you dance. It is an album about what is going on in the streets and there is maybe one or two songs that are quite serious. But it is not a gospel album.”
He laughed off suggestions that he was going to open a church, saying he prefered to use his music to speak unlike other artists who were shy to speak about their religion.
“Some churches only have 60 people. We as artists have an audience of thousands. We must not shy away. We must speak how we feel.”
