Gospel musician Winnie Mashaba recently received an honorary doctorate from the Trinity International Bible University (TIBU) for her work in music.
Now, the star has taken to her social media account to share what she attributes her award to – being disciplined and humble.
This nod has also opened new possibilities for her which she never thought would be possible.
“I truly never thought that being disciplined and humbled to the talent would one day give me an Honorary Doctorate and also make me dine with Kings and highly respected leaders. Also take me and my children in music to the places we always dreamed of ministering at. I bow unto the Lord,” she wrote in the caption of her a picture of herself.
Winnie is enjoying 20 years in the music industry and remains one of South Africa’s favourite artists.
“When it started I have never felt or had pressure to compete with anyone until today. My focus was to focus on the love and to feed the passion that kept burning me to the extend that i would create time and space to visit Correctional centers, orphanage homes , people who live with disabilities, old age homes, hospitals, schools etc.. just to sing and give motivation where is due. And all of this kept me alive in my spirit,” she explained in another post.
