Pas­tor Sikhum­buzo signs two more artists

Swazi Observer - - ENTERTAINMENT - By Lusi­toTsela

PAS­TOR Sikhum­buzo Shongwe has added two more artists un­der his man­age­ment sta­ble.

The two new gospel singers Vusi Sibiza and Phi­wok­wakhe Dlamini join award win­ning Linda Dlamini and co­me­dian Smallz un­der the cler­gy­man’s man­age­ment com­pany called TC Events.

Shongwe said he in­tends to take the mu­sic in­dus­try by storm as he al­lows his artists shine.

This fol­lows af­ter his artists had a good run last week­end, with Linda Dlamini record­ing his live CD/DVD, fol­lowed by his two ad­di­tions Sibiza and Phi­wok­wakhe per­fom­ing for the first time at this year’s SITF Sec­ond Gospel Sun­day.

“Com­ing from a re­li­gious fam­ily that loves gospel mu­sic and the, pro­fes­sion­al­ism that comes with it, see­ing the hard­ships that artists go through by sell­ing their own CDs made me de­cide to from a sta­ble that will take the artists from one point to the other,” said Shongwe.

Feel­ing

“The feel­ing of tak­ing an artist from the ground level to the top is ec­static, look­ing at the fact that my first artist Linda Dlamini has re­leased the best al­bum, shared the stage with gospel giants in the likes of Joy­ous Cel­e­bra­tion and Spirit of Praise is proof enough that we are lead­ing by grace,” he said.

“My two ad­di­tions will be re­leas­ing their al­bums in De­cem­ber, which will be both launched in March 2018 in prepa­ra­tions for the Easter Hol­i­days,” he said.

Sibiza said it was a great priv­i­lege to be work­ing with Pas­tor Shongwe as he had opened doors for him that he couldn’t open be­fore as a stand-alone artist.

“Look­ing at the fact that my first al­bum was re­leased in 2010 and I have been strug­gling since then, but with Pas­tor Sikhum­buzo as my man­ager, the fu­ture is bright,” he said.

Phi­wok­wakhe, on the other hand, said, “I signed with TC Events Man­age­ment be­cause of the grace I saw in the pas­tor, ac­tu­ally he was the piece that has been miss­ing in my puz­zle,” he said. “I have also been strug­gling, but I saw an op­por­tu­nity with Pas­tor Sikhum­buzo as what­ever he touches turns into gold, look at the things he has achieved since be­com­ing a pas­tor. He is a great leader and

that is rea­son enough to sign un­der TC Events Man­age­ment, in fact, who wouldn’t want to?” Pas­tor Sikhum­buzo has urged the pub­lic to sup­port the lo­cal artists and buy their orig­i­nal CDs than pi­rated ones to en­sure con­ti­nu­ity of God’s work.

He fur­ther in­vited will­ing artists to sign up with TC Events Man­age­ment as to them for them it is not all about the money, but the growth of tal­ented peo­ple.

PLEASED: Phi­wok­wakhe Dlamini.

NEW HOME: Vusi Sibiza.
