Gospel concert at city showground

2012-04-05 00:00

THE second annual In His Presence gospel concert takes place tonight at the Royal Showground with a bigger and better concert than the previous year, promised organisers.

With gospel artists like Hlengiwe Mhlaba, Solly Mahlangu and Pastor Benjamin Dube in the line-up, more than 2 000 people are expected to attend the event.

Gatsheni Entertainment owner and concert organiser Sthembiso Ndlovu said, “When we started last year we only had one big artist, Pastor Benjamin Dube. This year we have added more. We haven’t worked with so many big artists in one concert before, but are hoping that things go well,” he said.

Pastor Benjamin Dube, who performed at last year’s concert, said he enjoyed the event enough to return this year.

“I want to worship God and bring people into his presence,” he said.

Dube will perform songs from his new album, Healing in His Presence.

Event organisers have also added local artists to the line-up.

Mthokozisi Zakwe, a local gospel artist who released his debut album in 2010, said he is very excited to be sharing the stage with gospel legends.

“I cannot wait for my perfor­mance. I am so grateful for this opportunity,” he said.

Zakwe is working on his second album.

“My first album, Jesu Wami, did quite well and put my name out there. I hope that this one does much better,” he told The Witness.

Siyabonga Mnqayi from the premier’s office and one of the partners for the event, said the artists chosen appeal to the masses.

Gatsheni Entertainment worked together with the Office of the Premier, the Department of Transport and the Department of Arts and Culture to make this event happen.

The concert starts at 5 pm.

Enquiries go to Sthembiso Ndlovu on 073 113 0162. — WR.
