Faith Mussa comes from a family of musicians. He has been inspired by many artists throughout his life from the time he was very young. Paul Banda, Peter Mawanga, Wambali Mkandawire, are some of the inspirations he has had.
Faith started playing hand-made gallon guitars when he was 10years old in the dusty township of Ndirande in Blantyre.
Faith Mussa’s career skyrocketed after the release of his debut album “Desperate”. He has toured South Africa in the BBC Africa Beats, Scotland at the Celtic Connection Music Festival, Arts festival of Northern Norway, China, Kenya, UK at Glastonbury 2017 and USA where he toured twice with Peter Mawanga and the Amaravi movement.
The artist has been involved in projects with several organizations advocating for various causes in Malawi. He was part of UNICEF initiative advocating for Child rights through music. Later on, he worked with UNFPA, advocating for the advancement of education of the girl child. Now, he is working on a selffunded project educating the society about the evils of violence against people with albinism.
Faith Holds a bachelor’s Degree in Science, and a Diploma in Law from Chancellor College. His dream is to use his music to help disadvantaged children, to speak for their rights and be part of their success story. As a teacher, he wants to be able to teach the vulnerable about being positive and educate them on how they can advance their lives through their talents.
Faith Che Muphuwa Mussa is currently Malawi’s only “ONE MAN BAND” utilizing very new technology in the music industry combined with traditional Malawian vibes.
