Tanzanian heartthrob Ben Pol has switched gears from his pulsating Moyo Machine heydays that scintillated East Africa with the vibrations of Muziki courtesy of his work with Darassa in 2016.

Ben Pol has kicked off 2020 with a gospel tune, Ebenezer.

Currently receiving rave reviews a day after its January 18 release, Ben Pol has struck a chord with Ebenezer and earned praise from critics for taking the bold step.

Though available only in audio, the song is a graceful thanksgiving piece that captures his undeniable talent, relationship with God and position in life.

It resonates, to some, so much as Ommy Dimpoz’s Ni Wewe did in 2019. A hit that Dimpoz, in an interview with SDE, explained was his heart’s cheer on being discharged from hospital after battling throat surgery for months.

So what influenced the song? For starters, his fruitful relationship with Kenyan fiancé Anerlisa Muigai let the world in on his spiritual side.

In an Instagram post that he shared on January 9, Ben Pol noted that he was proud of who Muigai was becoming as she finds her space in God’s spirit.

“Baby I’m so proud of who you are, and who you are becoming spiritually! Continue to put God first and grow within his spirit, and within his organization! I love you,” stated Ben Pol.

To which the Keroche heiress responded that she was grateful for teaching her how to live with a pure heart.

“Thank you, my love, for bringing me closer to God and showing me how to see the good in everything even when everything seems off. Thank you also for teaching me how to forgive and most importantly to always have a pure heart,” she wrote.

In an interview with Tanzania’s Times FM in 2019, the singer poured his heart out on how he feels about his fiancé.

“We are very tight and of course there is a lot of stuff we have planned together. Some of the stuff is private I cannot share. I will not lie to you, she is hot and I love her. She has conquered my heart.” said Ben Pol.

To conquer the first step to marriage, he romantically went down on one knee during the 2019 Easter holidays at the Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort, Mombasa.

“Ile pete imenicost kama dollar elfu Kumi na moja hivi. Nimeinunua mwenyewe na nimekaa nayo kama two months. Tuko na ana natembea nayo ile pete kwenye pochi yangu ya brown nimeifunga vizuri natembea na ile pete kama two months nafikiria ideas jinsi gani ya kumvalisha mpaka tukaenda Mombasa nikamwambia twende tukapige picha pale kwenye Sunset.”
