This best sums up award winning South African gospel artist Dr Tumi (real name Tumišang Makweya). Born and bred in Seshego, Limpopo, Dr Tumi is a spiritual music doctor. There’s more to his title “Dr” than meets the eye. Dr Tumi earned his title after spending six years studying medicine at Medical University of Southern Africa (Mendusa). Dr Tumi, who is a producer, songwriter, instrumentalist and vocalist, is endowed with grace to minister healing from a dual perspective.
He runs a surgery in Mabopane, north of Pretoria providing physical healing but he also ministers healing to the soul through his heavenly inspired songs.
Through his music, the erstwhile lead singer of award wining gospel group Intense, touches souls propelling healing as it flows from heaven. Dr Tumi’s first solo album – Heart of a King garnered him Best RnB Gospel Award at the SABC Crown Gospel Music Awards in 2012, where he was nominated in four categories. He is emerging as one of South Africa’s most sought after gospel artists with a number of churches and ministries showing massive interest in his gift.
Like many artists, Dr Tumi’s singing kicked off in Sunday school. Church environment gave him a platform to work his skills as a pianist and singer.
