LUNGISANI Ntuli and Nqobile Ngidi, who won viewers’ hearts on the SABC2 I Want to Sing Gospel show competition, are among the artists who will perform at Nongoza Jebe Hall in New Brighton tomorrow.

They will be joined by other big names in the gospel industry like Starlet, Sibongile Geca, Mxolisi Mbete, Dumi Mkokstad and Soldiers of the Cross.

Mkokstad, 22, said he felt very honoured to be part of the lineup. “Our aim is to anoint the people of the Eastern Cape with the word of God.”

Ntuli said it was always good to perform for Port Elizabeth audiences. “They are full of love and very friendly. I was here last month and it feels like a home away from home. My aim is to motivate people by tackling the different aspects of life.”

The organiser of the show, Danny Mongo, said the idea of the gospel show came after he listened to Umhlobo Wenene last week and he heard about Toto Ndabambi’s story.

“This gospel show is in benefit of Ndabambi from Whittlesea, who was in a car accident eight years ago. Ever since the accident he has been sent from pillar to post by the Road Accident Fund.

“He is a father of two and cannot provide for his family as his left arm is paralysed.” When Mongo heard Ndabambi’s story on Maka MaAsi’s show on Umhlobo Wenene, “I knew that something had to be done,” he said.

Available from Computicket, the tickets are R100 for adults, R50 for children. The gates will open at 3pm.
