The salvation bug is catching up with artists as they leave the secular world in droves. The latest one to have ‘seen the light’ is none other than Ralph Sandal Masai, famously known as Cannibal.

Last year, the legendary Coast based hip-hop artist hinted that he would ditch rapping because he was considering turning his life around.

 Looks like he did just that and following in the footsteps of his predecessors, he has dropped a gospel tune dubbed ‘Mapenzi.’

Working in collabo with another artist by the name D Sense, the gospel jam was released on Monday and is already receiving a fair share of airplay.

The touching song talks about how God has been good and faithful showering him with blessings despite his sinful nature.

The celebrated artist has been keeping a low profile after losing a political seat in Mombasa in the 2017 general elections.

During an interview last year with a local daily, he revealed that the loss propelled him to salvation after what he discovered politicians were willing to do anything to secure political seats.

‘’To be honest with you, I would say me losing elections accelerated my decision to get saved….When I got into politics, I thought it would be a walk in the park but oh boy how wrong I was! It wasn’t as easy as I had expected. I realized most of my competitors and other politicians would go to any length so as to win an election. Many of them are involved with black magic, something they owe allegiance to due to their success in the political arena. So with me not being one who believes in black magic, I questioned what side I’m on’’ said Cannibal.
