A new kid in the local gospel music scene, Joseph LP has released his first ever EP called Wa Tshephega.

The EP was recorded at Soundlab Studios by Tashie Shepherd and the songs were composed by Joseph LP.

All you get is free ‘exposure’ gigs here and there. To push the brand, we do free shows, visit churches and minister, wherever an opportunity pops up,” he sadly noted. The young artist had previously opened shows for artists he looks up to such as Sbu Noah of Joyous Celebration and Nothando Hlophe of Spirit of Praise.
