However, he did not give up and continued practicing and composing until he learned the basics of playing the piano in 2009-2010. His faith in the Lord Jesus Christ has always played a vital role in his compositions.

In 2010, he released his second album Tiri ndi Yesu, which had the chart-topping song Mtendere, making it one of the best-selling gospel albums between 2010-2012. Patience’s music has always been centered on his faith, and his compositions have a spiritual feel to them.
