The Mitah Seperepere Convention Centre came alive as gospel lovers filled it to capacity for the 2017 Kim Fest on Saturday, 18 November.

Locals, including patrons from neighbouring countries, attended the festival to witness the award-winning Joyous Celebration performing.

The Diamond City’s own Mkhululi Jacobs from De Aar and Kimberley-based Karen van Staden also performed.

According to the organiser of the show, Zikie Molusi, the festival has been growing in leaps and bounds as it boosts domestic tourism.

He added that he was proud to see for himself how supporters had the time of their lives without a concern over safety.

As usual, the performances did not disappoint, as the audience was kept on their feet throughout the entire show.

Molusi complemented the province for its potential of expanding in hosting events of such calibre.

He thanked the supporters for staying loyal to the festival, which comes at the right time of reminding everyone the importance of praise and worship. He also thanked the volunteers who played different roles.

Molusi encouraged the partnership among the private sector, local and district municipalities, Department of Sports, Arts and Culture, and the Department of Economic Development and Tourism for a stronger partnership to put the province on the map.

Molusi was also pleased by the words of Joyous Celebration’s founder, Jabu Hlongwane, who said that the province does in fact have the potential to host one of their album launches.
