Gospel fans in Maun will be treated to a spiritually filled night as the Life Centre brings to the tourism capital the inaugural annual ‘Ko Motjiii Gospel Festival’ next weekend.
The festival which is set for the 26th of November at the village church will be headlined by veteran South African gospel artist, Solly Moholo. Besides the ‘Ke Latlhile Bokinza’ hit maker, the festival will also feature other South African gospel artists including, Conny Lamola, Mpho Thusago and Simon Dee.
The lineup for the local artists will comprise the likes of Phempherethe Pheto, Matheke Leteane, Gabo Thobolo, Bafana Ba Lesedi, Tshepi Wa Digale Miguel and many more others. The much anticipated inaugural festival is introducing to Maun a unique and special entertainment of harmonic gospel music by these most talented gospel artists.
Organisers have promised a stellar festival of gospel bliss with the added luster of praise and worship to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through songs that encourage believers in their walk with Christ. The all night gospel festival is organised by a local gospel singer, Gaolathe Kamboo who is popular for having a voice similar to that of the late Oleseng Shuping.
Founder of the festival, Grace Kamboo told The Weekender that the motive of the gospel night is to bring an event that is unique to feed and uplift the spirits of gospel lovers by bringing the best gospel artists to them. She added that the initiative was a family idea meant to fill up the souls of gospel lovers while giving back to the community of Maun.
“Our aim is to give back to the community by using the proceeds of the festival to help the less privileged,” she said. Kamboo explained that this year, the funds will be used to build a tuck-shop for one of the less fortunate who want to start a business for himself by selling some food and making a living from it.
She also revealed that their aim is to continue organising more and better gospel festivals every year with the desire to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to all gospel lovers in Maun and across the country after they have realized that there are fewer similar festivals.
The event is scheduled to commence from 1800 hrs until 6 am the following day.
Tickets are available on Webtickets and at all Spar outlets, while Platinum butchery in Maun also has limited tickets available for early birds. Those interested in pitching up food stalls will be allowed at a charge fee of P200.
