The MTN Joyous Celebration’s 21st National Tour’s next stop is where it all began, KwaZulu-Natal, where the Multi-Award-winning Gospel group will be celebrating its momentous achievement through their celebrated performances at the Durban ICC Arena – in partnership with the eThekwini Municipality – on the 4th and 5th of August.

The internationally acclaimed Gospel ensemble’s 21st album, aptly titled Heal our Land, could be seen by many as a form of prophecy, judging by the current social, political and economic strife experienced around the world.

“What greater time to host this two day extravaganza of praise than this, where our country is in need of healing. God put it in our hearts that we need to unite as a nation in prayer, hence with this album.

We invite you to come sing along, praise, dance, and join in devotions at our Durban show, where we will appeal to our Creator to deliver His people and grant His grace and mercy to heal our land,” says Pastor Jabu Hlongwane, Founder.

MTN Joyous Celebration remains pioneers in the industry. This year; the group’s position as the Gospel Music Powerhouse is further reinforced, as they reach a stage of great maturity. Not many can claim 21 years of constant re-engineering, improvement, raising the bar year-on-year, and producing consistent quality.

“It takes hard-work, perseverance and faith – among other things – to reach this pinnacle. Our 21st album demonstrates the support we received from our fans, locally and beyond. We could not have done it without them. Coming back to Durban leaves a sense of nostalgia, and we cannot help but humble ourselves. This is where it all began. We could not have foreseen that we would be here today, celebrating our 21st anniversary with the people who encouraged us,” says Pastor Mthunzi Namba.

Known for their extraordinarily pleasurable performances consisting of majestic vocals, up-to-date dance moves and regal attires, MTN Joyous Celebration promises to be no different in KZN. Gauteng, Port Elizabeth, Middelburg and the Mother City can attest to this as they have had their fair share of blessed praise and worship musicals.
