Kapfupi, who is still basking in glory after his hit song Mai Nga which was voted the 2010 Song of the Year at the recent National Arts Merit Awards (Nama) says he has always been a committed Christian.
“God has done wonders in my life and through his love, my life is changing for the better,” he told Standard Life&Style in an interview.
“When l recorded my first album in 2005, l did not even dream that one of these days l would win an award.
“I did not know that my work could be recognised to that extent.
“I am not saying l did not work hard on that song but receiving such recognition is something l never expected.”
Unlike some musicians who say they get their songs through dreams, Kapfupi said he sings about daily life experiences.
“These days in our communities many married couples are cheating on each other and this is what inspired the song Mai Nga,” he said.

“We need to be faithful to one another so that the HIV prevalence rate decreases in our country.
“As long as we do not admit that HIV is a reality, there is no way we can have an Aids-free generation,” he said.
Kapfupi says when it comes to work, he is not as playful as his stage antics might suggest.
His group does rehearsals between 10am and 5pm with a few short breaks.
“Currently we are working on our fifth album and one of the songs is a gospel song, for He deserves all the praise and worship,” the Epworth-based artist added.
“However this is not our first gospel song, in our second album we had a gospel song as well,” he said.
Kapfupi says he is working on a six-track album that he expects to be out before the end of the year.
His group Orchestra Ndoozvo is also working on a new drama series they hope would be screened on ZTV later this year.
“We are working on part two of What goes around which was aired sometime in 2009.
“We have made it a point that every year we work on dramas and we are not going to neglect acting, as we have a strong passion for it,” he said. The group comprises 15 members.
