Gospel legend Sipho “Big Fish” Makhabane says he doesn’t want to die before discovering a gospel gem in his province of Mpumalanga
In the Eastern Cape, he discovered Veliswa Skeyi and Malibongwe Gcwabe, who died in May. In Gauteng, he found Israel Mosehla and Tshepiso Motaung, and from eSwatini, he discovered Shongwe and Khuphuka, Ncandweni Christ Ambassadors and France Dlamini.
“All these artists are from different provinces and others from the neighbouring country. I don’t want to die before discovering a big gospel singer in my province,” said Big Fish.
The prize money plus a recording deal will be won at the Mpumalanga Can Sing auditions on 28 November at Mbombela Civic Centre in Mbombela at 7pm. He said the winner would come either from Enhlazeni, Gert Sibande or Enkangala district.
Big Fish said people from Mpumalanga are excited about the talent search initiative.
Makhabane said he would continue discovering more talent in the country and his wish was to take the talent search nationally.
Big Fish is grateful for the support from the National Lottery Commission, Mpumalanga Department of Culture, Sports and Recreation.
