Episode Synopsis - Season 8
6 April 2012 - The Easter Holiday Inspired Show
It is Good Friday and Afro Café is feeling inspired as we have two young men who are changing the face of gospel music. From the beautiful mountains of Port Shepstone we have the uplifting Sfiso Ncwane and from the vibrant and colourful streets of Pimville we have Keke Phofoolo. Both men have carved their paths from abject backgrounds and they have elevated themselves to being gospel powerhouses. They are on the show tonight, to give us a slice of their journey thus far and bless the Afro Café stage with their heavenly renditions. Joining them on the bill will be the queen of gospel music, Rebecca Malope. We catch up with her at the State Theatre as she shoots her latest DVD. A nostalgic performance from Lundi and a moving music video by Winnie Mashaba will conclude the Good Friday edition of Afro Café.
