What are your Drives and Passion sir?
When we interacted with Our Uwar Zumunta, we were prompted to ask him about his drives and passion, in his own words… “What drives me into gospel music as I stated earlier on is a calling and am not into music, it is the music that is in me. Similarly, It is a means of evangelism to the people through music.” He said…
Comedy on the other hand I see it as a hobby. I venture into Comedy because of my mother who has been suffering from high blood pressure, most of the time I do that to put a smile on her face. And got to find out that it brightens her day and I also notice it brings healings and smiles on people’s faces. So that encouraged me to do even more. And mostly, I do comedy that will inspire, enlighten, educate, and entertain.
My passion is to be a blessing to people around the world and to inspire others who are looking up to me. however, one of all this earned me an achievement in 2017, when i was awarded the Best Male Vocalist of the year 2017.
Don’t forget He dropped an album titled ‘Come to Me’ with several singles Like, If Not For You, Only You, Seated on the Throne, including the song ‘One People’ that featured Mr. Damz Ibro Chatjock, Dan Gwari, and MC Shafura.
How do you combine singing with comedy?
Gospel music is my calling, while comedy is my hobby and teaching is my profession.. Combining the duties of the above mentioned, is never a simple tasks. Of course it is not everybody that can possibly go with life the way it is. More grace sir.
Are you in any relationship?
Yes i am in a relationship.
