Free gospel show for East London
Top E Cape musicians vow to dazzle audiences at Gompo Hall on Friday
It is not every day that music lovers are treated to a free music show – but that is exactly what is happening today.
Top Eastern Cape gospel artists are expected to wow what is expected to be a capacity crowd at the Gompo Hall in East London on Friday.
Khanyisa Sabuka, Malibongwe Gcwabe, Phumla Mfene, Kholeka Dubula and Mawethu Madikiza will entertain the crowd free of charge.
Gatyane-born singer Kholeka will perform songs from her latest album for the first time in East London since her latest offering, Your Word Alibuyi Lilambatha, was released a few months ago.
Speaking to the Dispatch on Tuesday, Kholeka said she could not wait to perform for her East London fans.
“People should come expecting the presence of the Lord to deliver them and also to restore what the enemy has stolen. We are going there to seek the face of the Lord as He is the answer to our problems,” the musician said.
The Khilikithi hitmaker said she would sing songs mostly from her other albums.
“I will sing a few from the new album.
“They will hear the rest of the album when I return to East London to launch it at the Guild Theatre,” she said.
Event organiser and pastor Dumisani Siluku said the purpose of the show was to pray to God “to restore whatever we lost”.
He said the initial idea was to just have a whole night to pray, but he later thought of inviting artists who will minister to the audience in song.
“Song is part of bringing the good news of Christ to people,” he said.
Mdantsane-born singer Madikiza promised his fans a taste of new album called Icebo likaThixo, which will be launched at the Orient Theatre on Sunday next week.
“People should come ready to receive what God has in store for them that night.
“I will give them a taste of my new album and will also sing some of my old songs,” he said.
The show starts at 6pm and continues until 6am...
