Reading Time: 2 minutes

December as the last month of 2021 is the best time for MTN Joyous Celebration’s Restoration Show – Imvuselelo, considering the challenging nature of the year. The show will be staged at the Big Top Arena – Carnival City in Johannesburg.

Saturday the 18th of December will see the Gospel Ensemble opening up its platform for Artists who are not necessarily from the group, aptly referred to as Friends of Joyous. Audiences will be treated to MTN Joyous Celebration’s enthralling performance, plus the diverse and much loved presentations from the likes of award winning Thobekile. She hails from KZN and boasts eight albums and a new single to her name. Joining Thobekile in the Friends of Joyous lineup is the “Umusa Phezu Komusa” hitmaker, singer, songwriter and producer, Cannan Nyathi. Completing the trio of featured artists is the young award winning Ayanda Ntanzi who is known for his electrifying performances whose latest album “Priestly Worship” won him multiple categories in this year’s Crown Gospel Awards.

“Our passion has always been about developing talent as well as exposing the best talent South Africa has to offer, so we are thrilled that these Artists have accepted our invitation to join us on this particular show” says Dr Lindelani Mkhize, one of the Founders of MTN Joyous Celebration.

“This show could not have come at a more appropriate a time. Though numbers for gatherings are still very low, we appreciate that we will be in fellowship with 750 our beloved fans after many shows without a live audience. We can’t wait to sing, pray and praise with them whilst looking into their faces,” says Pastor Jabu, another Co-Founder of MTN Joyous Celebration.

The live show tickets were sold out in a couple of days and the ensemble are encouraging those fans who didn’t get tickets to stream the show live on JoyousTV on at a cost of only R3 a day or R39 per month. “We are sad that so many people who would have loved to join us at Carnival City are unable to because of the limited number of tickets available (as a result of the pandemic restrictions). But they need not despair, we will also be streaming the Restoration – Imvuselelo show live on from 8PM, where they can join in the restoring of some of what we have lost from wherever they may be. We cannot express our gratitude enough for the love they’ve shown us and continue to shower us with. To those attending the show live, they are requested to arrive by 6pm to ensure all Covid-19 safety protocols are adhered to. Their safety is important to us, and we urge them to please wear their masks at all times, maintain social distancing and be mindful of all COVID protocols,” adds Pastor Jabu Hlongwane – co-founding member of the Ensemble.

The platform is home to all MTN Joyous Celebration content including the recent Super Sunday shows. Subscribers can watch live shows as they happen, and these shows will be available for 48 hours, and will be switched on again after a short period.
