The Zambia Association of Musicians (ZAM) has expressed sorrow at the death of the Zambian gospel musician Marvin Kasomo.
Kasomo died yesterday afternoon in the University Teaching Hospital following a road accident on Friday last week.
Outgoing ZAM publicity secretary Njoya Tembo said the association has received the death of Kasoma with great shock and sorrow.
Tembo described the late Kasoma as a humble and God fearing man who always wanted to preach the gospel to the people of Zambia.
“He was like a family member and it is sad that he has left at a time when he had big plans for the music industry especially gospel,” Tembo said in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka today.
He has since wished the deceased’s family and friends God’s blessings and strength during the trying period.
Tembo has however appealed to government to consider putting a dual carriageway between Lusaka and Kabwe as the road has become a death trap to the people of Zambia.
The late Kasomo died on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 in the University Teaching Hospital (UTH)after he was involved in a road accident on Friday last week.
