Praise and worship rang out from God’s Mission Christian Centre International just behind the Gugulethu Mall when Rog Multimedia held a powerful and moving gospel show on Saturday November 17.
The event, called Tehillah Evening, was started last year. Young and old hit the dance floor, showing off mesmerising gospel dance moves.
This year’s event, however, was slightly different from the previous event as it was aimed at raising the much-needed funds to help two budding artists – Sibabale Sifo and Onele Mbiza- record their albums.
These two gifted artists kept everyone on the edge of their seats with their moving performances and dance moves during the three-hour show.
Event organiser and owner of Rog Multimedia, Khayalethu Christopher Twalo, also known as KC, said through the event they hoped to give gospel fans an opportunity to dance and praise the Lord.
But most importantly, he said, he wanted to help the artists record their album and launch their careers.
He said it was difficult and costly to record albums and he felt that he needed to do his part to help them.
However, he said, it had not been easy to put the event together without any sponsors and he had to dig deep into his own pocket to cover the costs. “These artists are talented and just need support. We must support our local talent. it is great when young people are involved in gospel music.
“I make this impassioned plea to anyone to support these young and gifted artists. These artists are going to make their names known in this industry. Their music contains message and power,” he said.
Mr Twalo said he had been in the music industry for more than a decade and had worked as a promoter. But he said, in 2016 he opted to fly solo and organise annual gospel showcases. He explained that one of the reasons that propels him to host such shows was that in Gugulethu there were no gospel shows.
He thanked everyone who attended the show and pleaded with them to continue doing so. Mr Sifo thanked Rog Multimedia for believing in them and for giving them a platform to showcase their talent. Mr Mbiza said the event had been a success. If you would like to help the artists in any way, you can contact Mr Twalo on 072 139 7613
