This Saturday will see Ingoma Awards-nominated Lebohang Kgapola take the stage alongside award-winning Loyiso Bala at the Fashion Meets Gospel event.
This annual event takes place at Cresta Mall (Barnyard Theatre), and will include other artists like Bongi & Collin, Elle Tisane, Nqubeko Mbatha, Fani Ntlama, Ntokozo Mbambo, Mabongi, Brian Temba, Janine Price, Dube Brothers and many others.
The show will start at 19h00 but doors will open at 17h00. Red carpet and photography will be from 18h00. It will be an amazing evening of music and fashion. Tickets costs R350 for general, R450 for VIP, R600 for VVIP and can be purchased at Computicket or Shoprite/Checkers stores countrywide. Dress code for the event is black and red formal/elegant, (NO sneakers) while the message and theme is “I am Loved”. For the fashion part, the organizers have picked ten very talented designers from all over South Africa. The theme for fashion is Romantic Fashion and Statement Couture.
Speaking from her home in Midrand, Lebohang expressed joy and excitement in being a part of the 6th Annual Fashion Meets Gospel. “Sharing the stage with such amazing artists can only be through God’s Grace”. Singing with the multi-award winning Loyiso will be like a cherry on top. Loyiso has won multiple awards including Best R&B album of 2007 at the Metro FM Awards, 5 SAMAs – South African Music Awards – 3 Metro FM awards, Best R&B and Best Producer at the SAMA awards 2008 and was nominated for best song of 2009 and 2010 at the SAMAs for ‘Blow Your Mind’ and ‘Maybe’ respectively. He was also previously nominated at the MTV awards alongside well-known acts like Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Akon and P Square.
The performance will add another feather in the cap for the hugely talented Lebohang, who has had a successful year thus far even as she cements her blossoming solo career. Having worked with some of South Africa’s great and award-winning artists like Khaya Mthethwa, Neville D, Ernie Smith, Loyiso Bala, Lira, Brian Temba, Musa Sukwene, Robbie Malinga and including internationally acclaimed Grammy award winning Israel Houghton, the time has certainly come for her to venture into a solo career.
If you love fashion and good music, then this event is a definite must attend for you.
