Limit X put together a selection of songs, which display a variety of influences and styles from the strongly African (in the title track "Send Me" and "Abba Father" - a song based on the Lord's Prayer) through calypso, reggae, rap, soul and even acapella ("Never The Same" and "Nina Eddembe", the latter song entirely in Swahili - I think!). The three lads who make up Limit X also combine styles really well within songs such as "Together" which features a meaty "ragamuffin" style rap, along with the infectious "J.E.S.U.S.". The final track "Vunja" is an irresistible African celebration of the fact Satan is defeated but, for me anyway is slightly marred lyrically ("Satan is sick little punk/Weak little fool..") as Jude 8-10 charges us not to speak slanderously/abusively of celestial beings, or am I being over sensitive? Anyways, whilst the more soulful numbers on the album I feel are a little ordinary, the rest more than make up for this in sheer originality and overall give the album a strong replay appeal.

I just came across your "Malibongwe" CD purchased in Juneau, Alaska after your concert. We were the couple that hoped you were blessed with the $ gift toward your ministry. We're sorry to hear your splitting. But, as you trusted God then at the beginning of your mission, we hope you are trusting God now at the end of this mission. God bless. Renate and Jerry H.

The Group was fantastic, as a close friend of one member it was very sad to see them part. One may still be able to obtain some of the Groups CD's by contacting Family Harvest Church in Tinley Park, Illinois where Dennis or should I say Dr. Dennis Sempebwa is now the Dean for the International College of Excellence.

I am so sad that this group broke up and "yes" I was bothered about the sick little punk comment. However, I have listened to their cds for many years with my children and grandchildren almost daily! I love praising God with Limit X!

PLEASE READ 1PETER 5:8 AND LUKE 10:19. SATAN IS WORST THAN A PUNK. THINK OF ALL THAT IS EVIL, IT ALL COMES FROM HIM, HE IS MERCILESS AND HE COMES TO KILL, STEAL AND DESTROY.
IF YOU THINK HE DOES NOT EXIST, JUST TURN ON THE TV, HE IS ON EVERY STATION MOCKING GOD. THAT'S BECAUSE HE IS THE ANTI-CHRIST. HE WANTS TO TAKE AS MANY TO HELL WITH HIM AS HE CAN.
