SA gospel sensation dates Lesotho
RENOWNED South African Gospel singer and minister, Lebo Sekgobela will on Saturday lead Christians in a worship night at Lehakoe Recreation Club from 7pm.
The Lion of Judah hit-maker will perform alongside local talents such as Vodacom Superstar winner Palesa Motlomelo, Afro Jazz and Gospel star Mookho Moqhali, clap and tap outfit, Balopolloa Ba Morena and the upcoming Rebirth Gospel Band.
Lebo shot to fame last year on the entertainment scene as well as in local and South African churches after the release of the album, Restored whose standout tracks include Sithi Bayethe, Lion of Judah, Igama Lika Jesu and Thato Ya hao.
The album was nominated for the Song of the Year, Best Urban Gospel and Best Female Album at the Metro FM Music Awards.
One of the organisers, Phatela Matee, told the Weekender this week that they had decided to bring Lebo to Lesotho as part of efforts of empowering and exposing local talent, “especially the 20-member Rebirth group which is a new kid on the block”.
“We brought on board a crowd puller, Lebo so that the show can have a bigger magnitude as it is not a secret that almost every person in Lesotho knows her or loves the songs Lion of Judah and Thato Ya Hao.
We are using the best to reveal the great,” Matee said, adding the event would also be used to seal the Easter celebrations with “a worship explosion”.
“Most churches had conferences throughout the recent Easter holidays so we decided to host this show this weekend when we can all attend and worship God in one accord.
“Worship is reverent honor and homage paid to God. Worshiping in truth connects the heart or spirit of worship with the truth about God and his work of redemption as revealed through Jesus Christ and the scriptures and Lebo’s music is powerful in leading people into worship,” he said.
