Lomame has always been in a musical environment and says he grew up in a music-dominated neighbourhood. He sang in his church for as long as he can remember and says it started there, growing and growing over the years.

“I have always enjoyed music and movies and used to pretend to act. We even had a musical group and although it was not that serious, the singing was,” he says.

Lomame is a jack of all trades and he is a master of all. Apart from his music career he has done some acting as well as scriptwriting.

“In my humble and spontaneously growing career, I have had the privilege of directing a movie titled 'My Father's Picture'. I have also worked with both local and international artists in the gospel music industry,”

Over the last few years, he has showcased his talent on platforms like Hope is not lost, Hakahana and The Third Will.

In 2007 he joined Trinity (Adoration) and he says this is where it started for him. “I was just in my own world until Peter Fransisku, the founder of Trinity, now known as Adoration, approached me and asked if I would join the group.

“Since I knew him on a personal level and loved music and wanted to broaden my musical knowledge, I was overwhelmed and excited to give it a try and see how it would go. I attended my first rehearsal.

“Honestly it was humbling. The music and the singing was different from what I was used to. It was strangely beautiful and it required some adjustments and some getting used to,” he added.

They had a keyboard at home and he used to play and sing for hours on end and would often forget to do anything else because he would be so consumed by the music.

“I used to think that me making music in a house full of people would become overbearing, but I have the strongest support system. My mother has always had faith in me and all of my dreams. The truth is I have gotten into trouble because of music. I would come home late and sneak into the house, always hoping to not to get into trouble with my strict parents,” he says.

He sang at many conferences, the NAMAs and the NGOMA to mention a few. Lomame has been pursuing a career in music and says he is always learning and being moulded.

“Time management has been a big issue as I have to juggle a lot of things. My music, the choir, films, family, as well as my church responsibilities. It is not easy at all because everything I do is demanding and time consuming. You have to be on set shooting a film, go to the studio and what not. I am always trying to balance the best way I can but I admit that at times I fail to do so,” he says.

He does his best to make sure no one is disappointed and says that at times he burns out and he loses creativity and concentration but then he has to take initiative to stop and regain himself.

“I mostly sleep late because of the heftiness of responsibilities. The most enjoyable part of the choir is when we are doing what we were gifted to do, and that is singing. My choir sings beautifully and I would not want to be a part of any other group. ” He said.

He sees himself as a very prominent and influential, artist, entrepreneur and spiritual leader. He owns a music studio and musical equipment.

The managing director of Adoration, Peter K. Sivambo says he was inspired to see the growth of Lomame. “He values time and places a lot of emphasis on it,” Sivambo said.

His fairness and passion certainly did not go unnoticed. “Everyone trusts him and shows him respect without him having to demand it,” he further adds.

This is his success story from a normal choir member to a change-bringing choir conductor.
