Renowned secular turned gospel singer Linet Masiro Munyali better known as Size 8 has given two conditions any Gengetone artist must follow if they want to do a song with her.
Speaking during an interview with Radio Maisha, the Afadhali Yesu singer made it clear that before recording a song, they would have to go to the alter to pay for the collaboration.
After that, they would get in the studio to release a track that would be on a whole new level. She insisted that the song must mention God because as long as a song has the name of God in it and carries the name of Jesus she has no problem with it.
“Nitawaambia kwanza twende pale madhabau tuombe collabo kwanza, after tumeomba tuingie studio tutoe genge la mziki. Lakini neon la Yesu liwe ndani kabisa kwasababu as along as kitu iko na neon la Mungu na inabeba Yesu sina shida. As long as it carries the word of God, has the word of God and it carries the Spirit of God haina shida,” she explained.

She went on to state that even in church people sing and praise God but one cannot know the person next to them is truly worshiping God or not. She added that the Word is the most important thing and not the person singing the song.
She explained that gospel artists are called for two things, to worship God in Spirit and Truth and to spread the word of God.
“The word is the most important thing not the person who is singing necessarily. Si mavazi yake, si outlook, si nini. Sisi gospel artists tuitiwa vitu mbili; one to worship God in spirit and truth, number two, to spread the word of God,” she explained.
Early this year, controversial gospel singer Bahati drew mixed reactions from his fans when he decided to feature Gengetone artists on his songs.
He did a song with Boondocks Gang dubbed Taniua which was labeled as trash by Nation FM presenter Cate Rira. He went on to do another song dubbed Kirerembe with secular group The Kansol.
