NELSON Mandela Bay gospel sensation Andile B’s latest album, Nguwe, is a must-have for gospel music collectors.

Andile B, born Andile Bhebhula, will be launching the album at the Babs Madlakane Community Hall in KwaNobuhle, Uitenhage, on Saturday and at the NU2 Motherwell Hall the following week, Saturday, November 5.

According to Andile B, the launch of the album in KwaNobuhle this week will precede the media launch in Motherwell next week. The shows will be almost the same, with the same music vibe.

The album, a sign of growth and versatility from Motherwell’s Andile B, who has been in the music industry for more than 10 years now.

“This is my 11th album. It was produced by Mxolisi Mhlongo, recorded at Cut n’ Edit studios and engineered by Shadrack Ndlovu and Ntobeko Macozoma.

It is a praise and worship album of 12 gospel songs composed by Andile B himself and the multiple award-winning Mdumiseni Nzimande, otherwise known as Dumi Mkokstad, with one or two of Andile B’s traditionally arranged tracks.

“This album is proof of my growth and versatility as a worshipper. I believe in moving with the times as a musician, going with the flow without actually changing my style. Fans will hear the same Andile B that they know,” said Andile who has joined Top Class Music, the company that boasts of talent in the form of stars like Dumi Mkokstad and Bethusile Mcinga among others.

All 12 songs are ministering but Andile’s favourites are the tracks Yilo lodwa (No 3) and NguJesu (No 5).

As a special treat, Andile will also be paying a tribute to departed musicians like Zolile Ndyawe, Stompie Mavi, Patrick Jack and Nondumiso Zondeki in the two shows.

“They might be gone, but they are not forgotten,” Andile said.

Fans must come in numbers and support the best shows ever in Nelson Mandela Bay.

General tickets are sold at R100 each and VIPs R200, while children pay R50.
