MBOMBELA – For time immemorial, Easter holidays have been gospel-worship and domestic tourism at its best for decades.
On Saturday, 2 April, Sipho “Big Fish” Makhabane will take gospel music to another level as he hosts the Pre-Easter Prayer and Gospel Festival at Mbombela Stadium. He’s partnered with the Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency (MTPA) and Myboet’s Transport to present a splendid gospel music festival. Myboet’s Transport will offer free transportation from Promenade Centre that will ferry revellers to the stadium and back.
The star-studded line-up comprises the likes of Joyous Celebrations’ Jabu Hlongwane, Mpumalanga Praise, Eswatini’s Ncandweni Christ Ambassadors, Jumbo, Donny Ngwenyama, Shongwe & Khuphuka, Takie Ndou, Sbu Noah, Thobekile, Ayanda Shange, Pastor Ncanda, Omega Khundu, Muzi B, Takesure, Ndudzo Matse, Thokozane Khoza, Qiniso Mabaso, Madoda Dee, Phindile Phoky, Steve Ngobeni, Pretty Mhlongo, Mxolisi Mbethe, Indumiso Gospel Group, Ernest Nkabinde, Sylvester and Abel M (M Zion).
“As stated, it’s a Pre-Easter Prayer Gospel Festival. One of the best expectations from the host of award-winning artists is the super line-up. They will offer their best renditions and prayer for the forthcoming Easter holidays in a week’s time. That’s the essence of the show to combine gospel excellence on one stage and preparing for the Easter holidays, which is a long weekend of worship in their respective places,” said Big Fish.
