The gig was held at the New Creation Life Hall in Kwekwe.
Dubbed the United Gospel Concert, it showcased Zimbabwean talent in Kudzi Nyakudya, Chivaviro, Trymore Bande and Tatenda Mahachi who shared the stage in one of the best gospel gigs ever to be held in the Midlands town.
Nyakudya did exceptionally well with tracks like Gadziriro and Emmanuel, while Bande who many likened to Pastor Charles Charamba, did not disappoint, especially when he belted out the track Phone.
Chivaviro left the crowd craving for more with the song Ebenezer. A myriad of people had to sing along with him, sending the packed hall into a frenzy.
It was the first time for Mahachi to perform in Kwekwe and many people couldn’t hide their appreciation of the young gospel musician who also gave a vintage act. The crowd waved in jubilation when the gospel sensation went on stage.
Mahachi opened the act with a song titled, Usacheme which touched many people’s hearts, taking them to another level of worship. The song gives hope despite all challenges that people face.
He wrapped his performance with the crowd’s favourite, Ndinoda Jesu, which also featured South African gospel star Sfiso Ncwane.
Generally, the show was a stimulating moment of high praise as the crowd was seen waving towels and dancing throughout the show.
The gospel musicians are set to take their United Gospel Concert throughout the country during the festive period. They performed in Gokwe yesterday.
