There also emerges a clear pattern in the gospel music preference for the 18-35 age group. Two of Zabron Singers' songs with 'Mkono wa Bwana' and their 2020 wedding song release, 'Sweetie Sweetie' were the top favourites for this age group.

Reuben Kigame’s 'Enda Nasi' is his most streamed gospel song, landing it as the third-most-playlisted song.
