The prodigal sons of gospel music, Mahendere Brothers on Saturday lit up Bulawayo at a dazzling show held at the UFIC’s Textile Mills premises.

A somewhat chilly Saturday was turned into a thrilling day as the Harare music giants descended on the city of Kings.

Mahendere Brothers redeemed themselves after being labelled as Zanu PF praise singers.

The controversial Amos Mahendere, band leader, was involved in the various Zanu PF songs and President Robert Mugabe’s birthday songs which were castigated by the Christian community as partisan. 

The gospel family led by the energetic, Amos took to the stage to wild applauses from the expectant crowd gathered at the former textiles manufacturing company.

They belted out the popular praise song Psalms 23 that took them to stardom in 2006.Their colourful performance left fans begging for more as they churned out yester-year hits to the delight of the music starved Bulawayo fans.

Before the brothers took to the stage, Harare based gospel ensemble, Gospel Power gave a breath taking performance churning out hit songs like Tafura and Anochengeta.

Led by Pastor Lawrence Gunda, the group did not disappoint as their fans expected a fife star performance which they delivered.

For Bulawayo gospel lovers, the gospel extravaganza was a day well spent as families took time to have fun and praise the Lord.
