Judging by the success of the tour launch at Johannesburg’s Carnival City during the Easter Weekend, the anticipation for the Cape Town leg of the tour is of an equally successful show. This time around, GrandWest in Goodwood will be the venue.
The Gospel genre emerged as top winners at the 2019 SAMA’s as MTN Joyous Celebration scooped three statues as Best-Selling Artist; Best Selling DVD and SAMRO/CAPASSO Best Selling Digital Artist. The Mother City will be the first to celebrate these wins with the group.
In addition, the MTN Joyous Celebration Cape Town show will be driven by two young and very talented music directors in the name of Mnqobi Nxumalo and Siphiwe Ngcobo. As an established culture of MTN Joyous Celebration, professionalism and excellence are in the heart of the group’s presentation. This culture is a thread that permeates all aspects of the presentation of the choir from the costumes, sound, stage design and the performances.
Even though the show launched not so long ago, audiences have taken to learning the songs and the dance moves already, courtesy of the early release of the CD and DVD.
Pastor Jabu Hlongwane says: “We are deeply humbled by the support we get from our fans which has seen us grow as a group year-on-year. We encourage them to wear comfortable clothing because there will be a great deal of dance, praise and worship at the show.”
The partnership between Joyous Celebration and MTN, has also been an extraordinary one which has allowed the choir to up the star quality production the group is known for.
“Joyous Celebration has been a key partner of MTN which has over the years continued to showcase value to the brand. It is for this reason that we have embarked on another journey with the choir, renewing our partnership which we are excited to see take new heights,” says Jacqui O’Sullivan: Executive for Corporate Affairs at MTN South Africa.
The leading telecommunications network provider in Africa recently announced its renewal of Joyous Celebration sponsorship for another two years, cementing the 14 years of a successful partnership between these two mega brands loved by South Africans.
Mr Lindelani Mkhize says: “The MTN Joyous Celebration sponsorship renewal is ground-breaking for us because it’s the longest partnership we have ever had. We are excited and grateful to MTN and we look forward to bringing everyone together through one of the things they love the most, and that is music.”
