African Idol and CBZ A Academy contender Mkhululi Bhebhe put on a splendid performance at the Harare International Conference Centre when he featured in one of Joyous Celebration's songs last Saturday.

He delighted Zimbabwean fans when he performed alongside this fashionable gospel outfit.

The crowd went into ecstasy when they unexpectedly saw Bhebhe feature a new version of Tambira Jehova, one of their most popular songs.

Mkhululi introduced Zimbabwean dances to his fellow Joyous members when he imitated Hosiah Chipanga and Simon Chimbetu dances in what was an outstanding performance by the 27-year-old singer who was clad in a silver suit.

"It was a magical experience performing with Joyous, I'm overwhelmed by the response Zimbabweans showed me and it was an exciting moment performing in my country."

"Singing with Joyous Celebration since I joined them in April last year has been a nice experience and I have learnt a lot in terms of spiritual and music growth," said Mkhululi.

Joyous Celebration put up a good performance and made fans sing along to their popular songs such as Vron Van Samaria, Khuluma Nkosi Yami and Isikhala.

Then came Uche who was again outstanding with his song My God Is Good which thrilled the audience.

Several local gospel artists also gave some polished performances, they include Fungisai Mashavave, Pastor G, TN Choir and Sebastian Magacha giving fans the total package they were expecting.

Sipho Makhabane and Pastor and Amai Charamba performed soon after Joyous and fans showed their support for these singers as they remained in the venue till they finished performing.

Charles Charamba's followers were given a double delight by their great singer as he unleashed the song of the moment, Nyika YeZimbabwe.

Mkhululi is working on his first album which is set to hit the market in June.

He is due to release a 16-track album which he described as a diverse compilation with everything gospel lovers expect.

Mkhululi, as he is now part and parcel of the group, will feature on the next Joyous Celebration album - their 15th - with his song Tambira Jehova.
