2018-01-10 06:00

ANDIPHELI Amandla Live in Concert, a religious organisation trading as Mpumakoloni International Gospel Music Awards (MKIGMA), is on a mission to extend and grow the gospel music genre, both in South Africa and abroad.

MKIGMA is a Port Elizabeth-based gospel event network that was established in 2015 by an independent gospel artist, named ­Odwa.

The network event feature gospel artists from various African countries and is aimed at developing local talent and taking it to an international level.

MKIGMA will host its first awards event in Port Elizabeth on April 28,.

Local gospel artists, as well as those from Swaziland, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and Lesotho, are welcome to participate in the event.

In a recent statement, MKIGMA said, “The gospel music industry is expanding at a rapid rate and the market is limited.

“We understand this and further utilise this unique way to extend this, allowing us to promote and grow the gospel in Southern Africa.

“We have noted that most upcoming artists are finding it hard to be honoured for the great work they are doing in the industry, especially outside South Africa; hence, we have started this event under the theme Bringing Africans Together.”

Nominee forms for the awards event are currently available online at www.mkigma.africa.

The closing date for entries is January 31.
