The Music Ministry of Mmatshepo Sampo was birthed and begun by God in mid-September 2010. Being new to the industry, with much still to learn and experience, this young Christian musician lives and resides in the warm and loving nation of South Africa and is driven, amongst many things, by a passion for Worship music.
An anointed singer and songwriter, her only desire in and through her worship to God is, “to first Love God, above all else” and in the same breathe, to also be a blessing to the Church of Jesus Christ, salt and light in this dark and lost world and to minister God’s Love (through music) to all who so desperately need it – the hurting, the broken, the lonely, the rejected, the lost and those who are hungry for and seeking after God. “I love worshipping God; I was created to worship Him. We all are. My hope and prayer is that every single song that God has chosen to give and entrust to me, to serve Him with – for His Honour and Glory, would truly just serve that sole purpose; and that God would use this ministry to touch the hearts and minds of people and to impact lives in a way that is personal, relevant, much needed and most pleasing to God. Also, to win souls for The Lord, Jesus Christ – bringing Great Honour and Joy to my Lord in doing so; this is one of the many important reasons why we live as Christians as well as why we have been called and anointed by God to serve Him.”
Up to date, Mmatshepo has been and is still in studio – recording The Lord’s first worship/gospel project (a full length album), entitled ‘I’M ON A JOURNEY’. The album is her very first project and it is also a very personal one. Put together by God’s Grace and Love, it will serve the purposes of (first) Glorifying God, bringing some form of healing to her – (personally), as well as to reach as many people as it can for the Kingdom of The Lord, Jesus Christ – those who need to hear the message of ‘I’M ON A JOURNEY’.
In the studio she has been working with and alongside the very well experienced, Wade Engelbrecht; a man of God and fellow musician, who at present is the Worship Pastor and Leader of Christian Family Church Johannesburg – the Spiritual Home to both of them. Wade not only serves the role of being her producer, but he is also a mentor to her. “Wade has been very instrumental in the producing of the musical aspects of the songs and of the album. He has helped a lot to shape and structure the songs and to give them a ‘New and Modern’ Sound, (an unplanned and unanticipated theme that is evidently running through the sound of the album), all of which has first and foremost been the Working of The Holy Spirit; and we give God All the Glory for this. My connection to and working with Wade has truly been ‘a God Connection and Combination’ that has really come together very well. I thank God for it.”
Apart from ‘I’M ON A JOURNEY’, Mmatshepo has officially released two singles; ‘AWAY WITH ME’ and ‘LORD JESUS, THE CHRIST’ respectively. Both songs are separate and both do not form part of the upcoming album. They have been released as FREE and DOWNLOADABLE singles and are made available to everyone for the purpose of Encouragement.
