IT is all systems go for the seventh annual uMgungundlovu In His Presence gospel festival on April 7 at the Royal Showground’s Olympia Hall.

The event, organised by OGatshenie Entertainment in conjunction with uMgungundlovu District Municipality, will be headlined by some of the biggest names in the South African gospel music industry.

The festival will see Dr Tumi, Lebo Segkobela, Dumi Mkokstad, Women in Praise, Andile kaMajola and PMB duo Nathi and Nkanyiso sharing the stage with local rising musicians like Sandile Ntombela and Lindelani Mkhize.

Event organiser, Sthembiso Ndlovu said preparations for the festival are at an advanced stage.

“This year we moved the festival to a bigger venue so we can accommodate more people.

“Our main aim for this show is to push gospel music while bringing big names to the city for all the local fans.

“For the past six years the show has been a success and this year we have taken it up a notch.”

Ndlovu urged gospel lovers to come in their numbers to be part of what he said will be the best festival to date.

“It will be a memorable day for all gospel music lovers.

“We have a lot in store. I do not want to pre-empt what will be taking place but I just want to urge all the gospel lovers to come in and witness the experience of some of their favourite musicians.

“We also have local pastors who will share sermons on the seven words from the cross.”

Headliner Dr Tumi has won a total of 13 awards since the release of his album Love and Grace, which features popular songs like Nothing Without You and No other God.

Lebo Sekgobela has also taken the gospel music industry by storm after the release of her single Lion of Judah, which has become an anthem among gospel music enthusiasts.

Tickets available at Computicket, Shoprite and Bible Centre (Langalibalele Street) from R190 to R350.

Gates open at 4pm and the show starts at 6pm.
