After surviving five bullets to his body, Discyple believes his life is a testimony to God's grace and mercy.

“With all the crime going on in Jamaica, it is just a spiritual warfare. So that is the reason behind this song,” he told the Jamaica Observer.

Spiritual War was released in October and produced by Christ Driven Records.

The singjay, whose given name is George St Alistair Cousins, hails from Hayes in Clarendon. He started doing music in 2006 after getting baptised. As part of the duo Emblem, he received a silver medal in the 2006 New Testament National Youth Congress gospel competition.

“I had been out of church for a while and unfortunately at the wrong place at the wrong time and was shot five times in an incident in Clarendon in 2014. I then knew I had to return to the church to carry out God's work as a musical minister,” hesaid.

After this life changing experience Discyple restarted him musical career with a song entitled God Saved Me.

“When God calls you it is not an option as to whether or not you are going to answer, you simply must. Many persons told me that: 'My yute, you shouldn't be here.' I always respond and say: 'I should because God saved me for a reason and that is for me to spread the universal message of love and to share my testimony with the world so others can be converted like me to the righteous life,'” Discyple added.
