Entertainment: Cameroonian-US based artist Bsenjo features Soweto gospel Choir in New release

By Bakah Derick 

It is a dream come true for Cameroonian-United States based contemporary gospel artist and songwriter Belinda Senjo. Bsenjo as she is known  has released a new song featuring the legendary South African Soweto gospel choir which was her dream.

"I went on to do a featured song with the legendary Soweto Gospel choir based in South Africa, which we released on September 15th, 2022. I have always loved Soweto gospel choir and I promised myself that one day I will be singing alongside the legends. And behold, that dream has finally come to fruition. It is safe to say that my love for Soweto music was inspired by the fact that I was the leader of my high school and church choir and most of the songs performed were that of the great Soweto gospel choir."

The song titled "Trumpet Sound" at press time just few days after the release has over 17000 YouTube views.  According to Bsenjo in her description, is for evangelism. 
"May this music be a blessing to anyone who listens to it and cause them to repent and come to Jesus Christ before it is too late." Bsenjo writes while publishing the video on YouTube. 

Formerly into general RnB, the native of Nso in Bui Division of the North West region is now into contemporary gospel. According to her, after releasing two of her songs, there was still a void in her heart.

 "I sought God's presence and guidance and at this point I repented and gave my life to Christ. I had been away from the music scene for five years. Before leaving the music scene, I announced that I will be returning as a gospel artist. I was very determined to use my voice for God's glory." 
Bsenjo arrived the US in 2013 and did covers for Mariah Carrey, Tasha Cobbs and CeCe Winans who became her major source of inspiration. 

"In 2014, I decided to showcase my talents to the rest of the world by auditioning for America’s Got Talent Competitions. I never made it to the live shows, but this in no way discouraged me. In 2017, I was relentless and still auditioned for the AGT competition when I heard it was coming to my city. I was at this juncture that I felt it was time for me to release my own original song." Belinda Senjo explained.

She then went on to release her first official single "Make A Change" in 2016 and the second "Bone bone man" in 2017. 

Prior to her release with the Soweto gospel choir, the 30years old artist celebrated her 29th birthday with a release titled Risen Lord FT Harlem Gospel Choir. 
Since 13, Bsenjo has kept her dream alive from Church choirs to school competitions releasing an album "Stand on your faith."  This album according to her was not successful for lack of finance and neglect by those in the industry who described her singing as "rubbish." 

Today, the married mother of one wants to remain original as she feels a good level of satisfaction following the work done this far. 

"More than anything I want my music to be known for its authenticity and for helping people to know and fear God. Everybody listening to my song should end up being. I want to give people Jesus Christ not goosebumps. I want them to learn about and appreciate the love of God; and most especially reflect on how good God has been to us. Every single moment of our lives is because of His mercy and grace. He will always be there during our dark times and our happy times. So more than anything, I want my music to inspire people to trust God."
