MANZINI – ‘Ngeyetfu Lentfo’!

This was the slogan at the Mavuso Trade and Exhibition Centre as gospel music celebrated South Africa’s fast growing mass choir, Mpumalanga Praise. The show started at 7pm last Saturday night till the early hours of 5am yesterday morning. The choir under the leadership of Sipho ‘Big Fish’ Makhabane, saw over 3 000 gospel music lovers watching its choir’s energetic performance which left gospel music lovers wanting for more. Gospel music lovers filled the venue’s main hall as they all wanted to witness the top performance that was displayed by the 35 choir members. Indeed they were not disappointed as the choir led them through praise and worship throughout their set.

Mpumalanga Praise was energetic as they sang on top of their voices in perfect harmony, which pleased their fans. The sound quality was immaculate throughout the show. Music lovers were on their toes during each song rendition, even the audience in  the VVIP section were on their feet dancing the night away. The group sang some of its famous songs which include  ‘Azulazule’, ‘Senginikela’ and Ungubaba’. Each time Mpumalanga Praise started a song; the fans would scream in excitement and rush to the front of the stage to dance. The choir performed for two hours straight, before bowing out and opening the stage for the rest of the solo supporting acts of the night. These included South Africa’s Thobekile, Ayanda Shange and Denzel Erasmus while local stars were represented by Zaga , Shongwe and Khuphuka, Frans Dlamini and Nduduzo Matse.

By the time the show ended, music lovers still wanted more from the artists, screaming ‘encore’ at the top of their voices in unison. However, Makhabane had to bid the crowd farewell, thanking them for the support. “It is already morning my people and I need you all to refresh and go to church,” he said.  Most of the music lovers mentioned that they enjoyed the show, adding that Mpumalanga Praise should come to Eswatini more often.
