  6. dudu says:

    Thanx to cc Zanele LaMbokazi Nkambule for such a wonderful gospel event.The scene was very well decorated n arranged. The only thing that made the awards boring was the time when the winners were just taking and leaving without saying a word.If only this can be rectified,it will be fine.It was nice that it was live on SABC 2 but with the audience ,it was not enjoyable most people just left for refreshments and came back after . The sound was very low at the back and up the gallery,we hardly hear what was said. otherwise the event was great.
