The family of the late Dr Nkomfa Mkabile will host a family prayer evening at their home in Mbekweni, Paarl at 17:00 today (18 April), following his passing at the Melomed Hospital in Bellville on Wednesday.

Mkabile was loved by many and his sudden death came as a shock. He was the founder of Bethel International Ministries and an award winning gospel artist.

Speaking on behalf of the family, Bishop Manny Niekerk says Mkabile was in hospital for the past week and died after a short illness.

Describing Mkabile, Niekerk says he was a jewel. “He brought light to any environment. If he was in the room everyone will know that he is the room. He was extremely friendly and an anointed man of God. He was not a normal gospel singer he was different, and he will be missed by many. He was a jewel that God gave us,” he says.

After the family prayer details of the memorial services and funeral arrangements will be discussed and communicated.
