SOUTH African gospel sensation Sfiso Ncwane will headline the Revolution Gospel Concert which will also feature another group from the neighbouring country and local artists.
Slated for 30 April 2016, the red carpet event will be held at Lehakoe Club with up-and-coming South African ensemble, Tonic Praise, also lined up to share the stage with and local groups Yadah Praise Family and Anointed Worshipers.
According to the Revolution Gospel Concert organisers, the event is meant to give gospel music lovers an enthralling worship and praise experience.
“The concert will give Christians the opportunity to experience gospel music at a higher level as we have lined up some of the best musicians around,” said Bokang Sekaleli who spoke on behalf of the organisers.
“We also aim to prove that local artistes can match the levels of international acts. I have witnessed Yadah perform locally and in South Africa and I must say that established South African artistes who shared the stage with them were blown away.
“Anointed Worshipers also set high standards with their blessed worship songs. These two groups can represent Lesotho on any stage and never disappoint.”
Sekaleli also said that Ncwane had been invited because they felt his story of patience and hardwork would inspire to local groups to persevere with their careers and never despair in the face of challenges.
Ncwane rose from humble beginnings to become a multi-platinum selling and award-winning artiste courtesy of a booming voice that produced hits like Kulungile Baba and Phakama Nkosi yeZulu.
Johannesburg-based Tonic Praise consists of former members of such groups as Spirit of Praise and Women of Praise. Their single You Are taken from the album New Level topped several radio charts and received generous airplay on television channels such as TBN and SABC 2.
Yadah Praise Family is a renowned local group that made its name in 2004. Since then, the group has graced several events in the country and in South Africa.
Anointed Worshipers have also featured at local and foreign events. They are currently working with Ps.Philly who worked with the well-known singer Keke Phoofolo on the hit Um’u Jehova.
Sekaleli said they would be organising more shows to promote local musicians in different genres.
“We are not only focused on gospel music but other genres as well. The aim is to promote local music in general and Basotho should expect more shows before the end of the year,” he said.
