Dumi Mkokstad wins big at Crown Gospel Awards
Gospel star Dumi Mkokstad is no doubt walking on sunshine after he took home one of the biggest prizes at this year’s Crown Gospel Awards. Dumi’s hit track Ulwandle is to 2018 gospel fans what Idibala is to your upcoming Dezemba party and it earned him the Best Gospel Song award.
Dumi mobilised and encouraged his forces to get behind him by voting right up until voting lines had closed. In the end, it paid off for the star who received over 110,000 votes. But not everyone was happy about the decision, with some pointing out that he had won the Best Praise Song award last year and Best Gospel Song in 2015.
They suggested the awards were biased. The show was also hampered by sound issues, which left many viewers frustrated. Still, it was a great night for Babo Ngcobo, who won the Best Artist category and a four-state tour to America.
Ayanda Ncwane’s gospel group Abathandwa were a clear fan favourite and walked away with the Most Downloaded song and Best Gospel Music Video. Best Male Gospel Artist went to Sipho Ngwenya, while Swazi Dlamini won the Best Female Artist award.
Dumi Mkokstad and Thinah Zungu collaboration creates sounds that go gold
When two great gospel stars get together, wonderful things are bound to happen.Gospel superstars Dumi Mkokstad and Thinah Zungu have worked together to create an explosive new album titled Ebeke Walunga uThixo. The project is a collaborative effort resulting in great sounds and a powerhouse of vocals.
The 15-track album is the culmination of years of experience in the music industry combined with sheer talent. According to Mkokstad, who was born Mdumiseni Nzimande, the album had to come because the fans were calling for it.
“We did a song together and gospel fans loved it. They have been asking for this collaboration since then.
“From a business perspective, we thought a single wouldn’t work, so we decided on a full collaboration album.”
Zungu, who was born in Inanda outside Durban, says: “We are different brands but of the same calibre. We believe that, for us, collaborating will take both our careers to another level. It is not competition, it is about complementing each other.”
The duo’s album, that was released recently, has received a positive response both on radio and in terms of sales as it has achieved gold status after selling more than 20000 copies. Zungu says that the album is different from their normal music style. To make sure the sound was unique, the duo used a different studio.
“Dumi is very strong on the spiritual side, and I am very strong on motivation.
“We combined the two different flavours to produce something unique.”
Written and produced by the pair, Ebeke Walunga uThixo speaks to those who have lost faith in the power of the mighty God. Zungu explains: “We are saying whatever you are facing at the moment will pass. Whenever we go through a situation in life we tend to doubt his power.
“We are saying if you count your blessings, you will realise that God has been good to you. Don’t give up now.”
Mkokstad sayscomposing was done by the pair jointly. Some songs were composed in collaboration with Mhlobo Wenene presenter Nomonde Vakalisa, and songwriter Senzo Khumalo. He says when they went to the studio they wanted an album that will accommodate all audiences – churchgoers and non-churchgoers. The music in the album speaks to people and soothes those wounded hearts.
Songs such as Siding’uphawu, Wazi Konke and Angeke Asishiye give people hope. “We knew we had to cater for a variety of fans. We wanted to inspire those who don’t go to church but love gospel music. We wanted to encourage them through music.”
Mkokstad, who was born in Mount Ayliff in the former Transkei, has 11 albums and numerous awards under his belt. The star, who has been singing since he was nine years old, has established his own recording company, Shammah Records and has signed Nathi Sithole. Meanwhile, Zungu, who has released four albums, says he used to sing Mkokstad’s songs at Sunday school.
He says he never thought that one day he would work with him. Zungu released his debut album Enkazimulweni in 2007. In 2009, he dropped his second album titled Kuthe Bekwazi. In 2011, he releasedKwanqab’umusa, which won the best album and best gospel song and best songwriter at the SABC Crown Gospel Awards 2012.
Zungu released Nginguthandiwe under his company, Thinah Music Productions, in 2013.
