Top Eastern Cape gospel musicians drop new albums
Two of the province’s award-winning gospel artists launched their new albums over the weekend.
Multi-award-winning Bethusile Mcinga launched his fourth album, Intando Yakho, in Mthatha on Saturday night, and Khanyisa Sabuka launched her 10th album titled Ewe Lowo in East London the following day.
Sabuka started her music career two decades ago as a lead singer of the now defunct Mdantsane gospel outfit, Youth With Mission.
Her 20 years experience on different stages across the country was apparent during her performance on Sunday.
Speaking to the Daily Dispatch after her performance, Khanyisa said it was the support of her fans that has kept her going.
“The journey was not smooth. It has not been easy, but God has kept me going.
“Through the support I am getting from my siblings, my husband and my fans I am still standing,” she said.
“What also kept me going was understanding the purpose of God about my life.
“If it was for money I would have quit a long time ago.
“I have passion for music. I have passion for recruiting unbelievers to know Christ.”
The working mother of four said through the support of her husband she was managing to juggle between being a mother and having to travel around.
“My husband understands my ministry very well and he supports me 100%. That makes things easier for me,” she said. —
