Mahachi who was the only foreigner among a myriad of top South African gospel artistes gave a vintage act at the gospel music extravaganza, which was held at Durban Centrum.
South African gospel musicians who performed on the night included S’fiso Ncwane, Lundi Tymara, Rebecca Malope, Dumi Mkhostad and Thina Zungu, among others.
GAS, the brainchild of South African award-winning Ncwane has become one of the biggest gospel shows held in southern Africa. The show attracted fans from as far afield as Cape Town, Johannesburg and other parts of southern Africa.
Mahachi did not disappoint as he churned out hit after hit, sending the crowd into frenzy. He kicked off with Naye Naye Jesu followed by Ndinoda Jesu.
However, fans went into delirium when Mahachi teamed up with Ncwane for their duet Ndinoda Jesu.
“I was so excited and I thank God for this opportunity. South Africans have been great for appreciating my music,” said Mahachi. “I never thought South Africans would love Shona that much, but it was possible with God.”
Mahachi is expected to headline another gospel show in South Africa in April.
