MBOKAZI-NKAMBULE’S SPOKESMAN SIPHO KALENI SAYS
WE have said it again and again that “we are aware of this ongoing smear campaign against Zanele Mbokazi-nkambule and all the projects she leads, such as the SABC Crown Gospel Music Awards.
Let us put it on record: the World “Gospel Powerhouse never tendered for the awards at the SABC, as this was birthed and nurtured by us (the World Gospel Powerhouse) under our president and visionary Zanele Mbokazi-nkambule.
It is a concept that we submitted “to the SABC as an unsolicited proposal (as early as 2006) and these awards would have taken place with or without the SABC. However, we are pleased the SABC saw value in the project and decided to partner with it. Sunday World has also been a valuable (media) partner. We remain focused on our man“date of pushing God s agenda for the
’ salvation of many in our generation, despite all these attempts to drag the name of our God through the mud. Soon the truth around this “smear campaign will come out. God is fighting this battle for us.”
