The Gospel Music Ministry Show, organised by The Nations and graced by SA gospel pioneer, Derrick Ndzimande and his heir apparent, Amos Mphahlele, gave fans a worthy Easter holiday treat.

Among the groups that kept the crowd spellbound during the five-hour show were The Nations, Chosen Brothers, UmlayezokaJehova, rising newcomers IzwiLesiphelo, Quiet Ncube, Heroes of Faith and MthobisiCekwane.

With most of the songs done in the fast beat of Afro-pop sounds, the fans were kept on the dance floor. The musicians were delighted to share the stage with the legendary Ndzimande who, with 26 albums to his name, is idolised by many in Zimbabwe. Cekwane’s song “Ezulwini”, Ncube’s “UJesuUkhona” and IzwiLesiphelo’s “ImpiloEngapheliyo” and “KuyosulwaInyembezi” set the tone of the afternoon, while The Nations and Chosen Brothers literally brought the house down with “UJesuunobubele” and “Hlalani La”, respectively.

“I have always prayed for something like this and I am happy to have shared the stage with Ndzimande, one of my long time idols,” said Promise Mhlanga, lead-singer for the top-selling IzwiLesiphelo.
