MTN iPraise is looking for a praise team that will share the stage with Nigerian gospel singer Sinach at the gospel show slated for October 1.
This was announced by MTN iPraise spokesperson Siya Sukati yesterday.
Sukati said the selection process would be through public nominations with the winning praise team going home with E10 000 worth sound equipment.
“We are once again opening up the opportunity for local talent to join the MTN iPraise line-up. What is exciting about this initiative is that we will allow Eswatini to vote for the praise team they would like to see on stage on October 1,” said Sukati.
This will add further excitement to the local line-up as the audience will get to see their own perform.
“We encourage all those who want to put names forward to download the App if they have not already done so in order to be part of the excitement. The winners will be part of the artists interviewed by our media partner, ONE Gospel. Our beverage sponsor, Cert Beverages, will make sure they are kept hydrated both on and off stage,” added Sukati.
Praise team supporters should send the name of their favourite praise team to 7888 6161.
Nominating on Ayoba is free. Each nomination sent counts for two. Churches and supporters are encouraged to rally behind their chosen praise team and vote daily on Ayoba. Nominations close on Monday.
The complete line-up for MTN iPraise features Sinach, South African gospel artists Ayanda Ntazi and Sindi Ntombela, and local musicians Nduduzo Matse and Nothando Hlophe. The Top 5 includes, Vessels of Praise, Ntenteza, Celimphilo Maziya, The Lillies Choir and Linda Dlamini.
The Top 5 five artists were chosen via public participation through a voting process which ran over the past two months.
