The musician launched her album, The Praise Offering, on Friday night at a well-attended event at Elite 300.
“The album means the beginning for me and my maturity and my breakthrough to ministry through music. It is a testimony to me and to other aspiring musicians, who want to launch their careers and it should show everyone that it’s possible with God,” she said.
Mguni, who is a member of the renowned gospel group, Vocal Ex, said the launch was an overwhelming experience.
“I have ministered in front of big crowds before with a group, but on Friday it was a different note as the show was mine alone. It was overwhelming seeing people that had come to support me. I almost broke into tears when I got onto the stage on seeing the cheering crowds.”
The 10-track album took her only a month to compose and she attributed that to the team behind the scenes, which she said she had worked with before at Vocal Ex.
One of the tracks Pirori, a praise song, is set to become a breakaway hit track.
Mguni has lined up a number of shows across the country in a bid to promote her debut album. There is also an international show slated for the United Kingdom in November that awaits her.
The 23-year-old musician is currently studying for a higher diploma in human resources management.
