    I agree,Guardian Angel is the only one of the few genuine gospel singers in Kenya. May almighty God bless him and keep him in the right track, I pray! I love his music, why lie!

  6. Different from others who claim they are gospel musicians but sing crap, Guardian Angel is truly on the gospel side. May God move him to higher levels.
