Easter weeking is knocking, and gospel lovers in the Cape can expect to be enetertained to the heart’s content.

Starting this Saturday, Top Class Production in partnership with Tygerberg 104 FM, will be staging a massive show titled 2106 Worship Experience #CapeTownBeReady at the OR Tambo Sports Complex.

It’s a star studded line-up featuring the likes of Betusile Mcinga, Dumi Mkokstad, Hlengiwe Mhlaba, Andile B, M-Siya and Xolisa Kwinana to name a few .

TCP’s Lubabalo Peter said the tickets were selling like “hot cakes” as the fans were thirsty for action.

Tickets are still available at all Silulo Ulutho Technologies stores at R150 for adults and R50 for children.

.Meawnhile, Sebe Events will present the Ebenezer Gospel Show at Crossroad Library Hall on Saturday March 5.

The line-up also boasts the who is who of gospel in the country and promises to be an electrifying performance.

Crooners like Pastor Mfundo Tywaku, Tamie Tora, M-Siya, Xolani Kwinana and Phumeza Sobekwa-who won the Cape Town Gospel Auditions in 2015- will mesmerise the crowd.

We caught up with Mathemba S Memela and Mzwamatolo Holyman Nombila who will be sharing the stage on the day.

Memela said he will do a presentation that will leave the audience mesmerised.

“I will be someone else on stage that day. My live performance will reveal my hidden talent which will leave a positive impact on their lives. I will do the best I can,” he said.

Memela will perform songs from both of his albums.

His debut album, titled Mabaphile, was released in 2013 and it was followed by his second album titled The Power, which was released in 2014.

The former police officer, who was based in Flying Squad unit in Cape Town, said both his albums are selling a lot of copies.

He resigned from the South African Police Service (SAPS) in 2014 as he wanted to focus on his mission of prophecy.

“My albums are well received by my fans. They are competing currently and I am happy the way they are selling. My albums are full of food for the soul, revival, healing and spiritual upliftment,” Memela said.

Memela’s albums are available if you call to order on 0620011884 or by contacting him via his Facebook page which is Mathemba S Memela.

He is a member of Agape Baptist Church in Leiden, Delft.

Nombila also promised a big surprise for his fans.

He said their “lives will never be the same again” after the show.

Nombila also has two albums under his name.

His debut album, titled uJesu Uyasindisa-uxolela izono, was released in 2014 and it was followed by his second album, titled Ndithe Gabalala, which was released last year.

“My albums are rocking. The title of my second album is telling the story that God set me free,” Nombila said.

Nombila’s singing was terrible in a way that he was banned from leading his family in song whenver they prayed, but he now claims that the grace of God has since changed that.

“I always loved singing, but was really bad in a way that I was not even allowed at home to lead the prayer meeting in song. God, by His grace, opened my voice in 2006 and I started singing very well,” he added.

His albums are available at Bellstar Music or by calling him for order on 0838971991.

The tickets for the show are available at Computicket for R100.
