WINDHOEK, 05 AUG (NAMPA) - Artists at ‘The Heal Our Land’ concert held in Windhoek Saturday delivered a stellar performance with a live band which kept the audience on their feet.
The concert held in the capital saw gospel musicians from the big guns in the local and international gospel circles sharing a stage.
Namibia's own award-winning energetic songstress Manda Gabriel headlined the concert and recorded her DVD titled 'The Heal Our Land' which she said will be made available soon.
There was never a dull moment as the artists together with a live band and backup singers brought their A-game and sent the audience on a spiritual rollercoaster from praying to worship.
The local artists who graced the stage are D-Naff, Abner Mumbala, Sovita Joshua, Pride Vuuyo Johnson, Jux Adolf, Esme, Dee A and Franklin amongst others, along with South African award winning artists Zaza Mokheti and Dumi Mkokstad, who are well-known in the industry.
The audience welcomed Zaza and Dumi with their hit songs to the stage which enticed them to return to the country with a concert of their own in the near future.
Dumi who is in the country for his second visit said he was overwhelmed by the love and appreciation Namibians showed him.
“I thank everyone who came, we really appreciate them and thank them. I hope and I've been praying to come and have my own show as well as bringing a few artists from South Africa to come and perform with artists from here too,” said Dumi.
Zaza shared similar sentiments, saying she is looking forward to returning with a show of her own and encourage gospel musicians to work hard.
“I can see that gospel in Namibia can do great, it is promising and the soul is fertile so gospel artists in Namibia get up and work, give the people what they want,” said Zaza.
