GOSPEL FANS can ready themselves for the annual Macufe gospel festival.

The event will be held at The Dome (Old Grey Sports Grounds) in Bloemfontein on Sunday, 4 October.

Leading the gospel giants at the Mangaung Cultural Festival (Macufe) is none other than S’fiso Ncwane, who always mesmerises audiences whenever he performs.

Other gospel heavyweights such as Benjamin Dube, Connie Lamola, Teboho, Tshepiso, Kgosi and Israel Mosehle are all expected to attend the festival.

They will be joined on stage by Mike Bakamela, Keorapetse, Nkosi Dumako, Umsingizane, Thoko, Pulse of Joy, the Lejweleputswa Gospel Choir as well as Sechaba. Gospel music has always been a popular form, but with the arrival of S’fiso on the scene, music and the culture of contemporary Christianity get a real energy boost.

Injecting a vigorous and youthful excitement to “faith-walking”, Ncwane makes it cool to become a Christian, placing his godly messages with the same powerful effect as other urban pop music performers.

Over the past few years he has released hits such as Kulungile Baba, Bayede Baba, Baba Ngiyabonga and Ingakho Ngicula.

The festival, which starts at 11:00, is bound to be a crowd pleaser. Tickets are available at Computicket and Shoprite Checkers outlets nationwide at R150
