Born on the 20/05/1992 in the Southern province of Congo,  in his own words he says " I grew up in an environment of ministers and Worship leaders, In 2003 I started playing piano in Church and writing songs for my Church choir. This horned in me the desire to reach out to many both , non-believers and believers, in 2012 I started singing on my own  with the vision and mission to fulfill God's calling on my life by reaching Hearts of Believers and non believers transmitting the good news and seeing restoration and revival, gospel music has always been like oxygen in our house, always been part of my life” Israel's masterful fusion of music and ministry these past few years has Taken its level and mostly referred to as the future of gospel music, Continuing on his global mission to “bring the cool back to the worship experience, and get people, especially the unchurched and Unbelievers excited about salvation,” the Salax and Groove award Winner in Rwanda debuted at #1 on most Radio  chart with his albums Like Number one,  released in 2014, got a lot of attention, With Sleepless night he worked on his second Album released in 2017 and Named Intashyo(Greetings) Which also got a lot of attention with over 1million view on Media platforms like Youtube, Spotify, and Itunes 

Israël has worked and shared the stage with an award-winning artist, Don Moen, God has opened many doors on his behalf allowing him to minister in song at churches worldwide. Mbonyi has made appearances on Salax and Groove award Stages, and various nominations for Grove Awards and Salax Awards and recently ranked 2018 Winner on Salax Awards for Best Gospel Artist.

Israël is currently a faithful member under the ministry of Apostel Joshua Masasu at Restoration Church in Kigali Rwanda, One thing that Israël desires, is to keep the message of Christ on display more than the brand and fame of the artist.  “Without the Christ of the Gospel, we don’t have Gospel/Christian music”
