Miracle Paul Gospel Awards on cards

HARARE - Local church, New Revelation Ministries, has introduced annual awards to honour musicians and writers in the country.

Led by prophet Miracle Paul, famed for Abraham’s Tent, the Chitungwiza-based New Revelation Ministries become the latest example of churches that awards outstanding individuals in the society.

The awards, Miracle Paul Gospel Awards, will honour musicians, journalists and pastors among others who played a crucial role in the spreading of the gospel.

“The awards will run on annual basis starting this year (2019). The church will fund everything and we are looking forward to the event,” said Miracle Paul.  

“Most of the key players in the gospel fraternity are not recognised yet they are playing a pivotal role in uplifting our lives. We have to give them some tokens of appreciation.”

Of late, churches interact more with musicians as they routinely hire them on their functions. At first, churches were only specialising on gospel musicians but of late, they are now hiring even secular ones.

Musicians Alick Macheso, Lady Squanda, Freeman, Dadza D and Killer T among others had all performed before huge crowds in churches unlike before.

Meanwhile, the Miracle Paul Gospel Awards come at a time when some of the awards are struggling to pull through.

Some of the awards that are struggling include Zimbabwe Music Awards (Zima) and Zimdancehall awards among others. 

The tough operating environment is affecting local awards, of late.

Meanwhile, the most visible gospel annual awards are hosted by the United Family International Church’s Emmanuel and Ruth Makandiwa Invitational Concert Awards Night (Permican Awards).
