SA star Dube to grace PHD event

HARARE - South African gospel music star Benjamin Dube is expected to jet into Harare tomorrow, a few hours before the Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) Ministries’ Night of Turnaround 3.

The When I think about Jesus singer will be the star performer of the highly-anticipated all-night event expected to attract over 100 000 people.

Talent Mango, an official in the church led by Walter Magaya, told the Daily News yesterday that all was now in place for the South African musician to perform at tomorrow night’s event to be held at the Blue Shade opposite Zindoga Shops in Waterfalls.

“We are expecting Dube on Friday morning,” said Mango.

“The performance by Dube and other gospel artistes is expected to create an ideal environment for worship during the Night of Turn Around 3 that will generate many testimonies.”

Dube is expected to perform his hits like Ngiyamthanda Ujesu, Holy Spirit, When I think about Jesus, I Don’t Feel No-Ways Tired and Uyahalalela.

He announced his arrival on the South African music scene with the hit song Holy Spirit which he did with famous South African producer Sello “Chicco” Twala in 1986. Dube then recorded his first solo project in 1988 titled Ebenezer.

In 1996, he received the Outstanding National Gospel Artiste award for his solo album Celebration.

Dube has shared the stage with top South African musicians like the late Lucky Dube, Rebecca Malope, Don Laka, Sibongile Khumalo, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Victor Masondo and Chicco.

He has also opened performances for well-known American Gospel Artistes like the late James Cleveland, Mighty Clouds of Joy, Clark Sisters and Andre Crouch

The Holy Spirit singer, who headlined the Carnival Thanksgiving Gospel Show at Glamis Stadium in May last year, will share the stage with an impressive cast of local musicians which includes Mathias Mhere, Agatha Murudzwa, Sebastian Magacha, Tembelami, Flame B and Yadah Voices Choir.

Recently-crowned Zimbabwe Music Awards (Zima) winner in the Best Traditional Gospel category, Mathias Mhere, is relishing sharing the stage with a gospel music icon like Dube.

“I am very happy to have been afforded the opportunity to perform at such a big platform where I will share the stage with Dube and several top local artistes,” said Mhere.

“The PHD Ministries draws people from different countries hence it is an opportunity to market Zimbabwean music. I am very confident that we are going to give a good account of ourselves.”
