Joyous Celebration confirms third performance in Gaborone

Publishing Date : 09 April, 2018


Renowned South African gospel ensemble, Joyous celebration is making its third return to Botswana for a performance expected to charm revellers at the National Stadium August 25.

The group confirmed Gaborone as part of their Joyous 22 tour schedule on Wednesday this week through a Facebook post. Joyous Celebration is a South African Gospel choir which was founded in 1994 by Jabu Hlongwane, the Mthunzi Namba and Lindelani Mkhize. What was merely meant to be a one-time studio project by South African musicians turned into a massive platform for upcoming South African artists. The choir has enjoyed success in South Africa and the rest of the African continent, having released 22 albums as of 2018.

It is one of South Africa's most successful gospel choirs, following acts like The Soweto Gospel Choir. The choir released their new album recently entitled ‘All for you’ which is the 22nd album of the award-winning choir. Its last album, Joyous Celebration 21: ‘Heal Our Land,’ which was recorded at the Potter’s House Church in Dallas, Texas, enjoyed major success. This latest offering, is a token of appreciation to the group’s fans, founder, Mkhize reportedly said.

Within hours of its release, ‘All for You’ reportedly went gold and climbed to the number-one spot across all genres and retains that position on the Apple Music Gospel Charts. Joyous Celebration first performed in Gaborone in 2009 and returned in 2011 at Ditshupo Hall for its 15th release. The outfit has helped launch and elevate careers of some of South Africa’s most followed Gospel artists.
