- 30 000 worshippers turned up at the Voortrekker monument to watch Dr Tumi perform
- He put on a spectacular show in the hopes that people could fully give themselves to the Lord in prayer
- This show held special significance to him as it united South Africans in a time where the country is divided
Dr Tumi has managed to sell out yet another show, but this time 30 000 people arrived to watch him perform at the Voortrekker monument over the weekend.
Tumisang ‘Dr Tumi’ Makweya filled the Ticketpro Dome to its maximum capacity a year ago, but was moved by the turnout he received at his latest performance
The gospel star revealed that this show meant a lot to him as people from all walks of life gathered to worship together at the Afrikaans monument, especially since the country has been split over the controversial land debate.
Briefly.co.za learned that in light of the discussions over land ownership, Dr Tumi specifically chose the heritage site as the venue for his show because he believes that all South Africans should be able to live in harmony with one another.
Dr Tumi is very proud of the fact that people of all races attended his show at the monument, especially since black people were unable to visit the site during apartheid.
He pulled out all the stops for the three-hour show with a grand stage and backing vocalists to create the perfect space for worshippers to give themselves fully to God.
Seipati ‘Twasa’ Seoke was the MC for the night as well as the opening act to warm up the crowd.
Dr Tumi was not the only person on the line-up for the evening, comedian Nceku Sibanda took to the stage to lighten the mood and also pastor Lungi Ndala delivered a small sermon to the audience before Dr Tumi walked on stage for his performance.
TimesLIVE reports that Dr Tumi could feel that the audience were enjoying themselves and that they devoted themselves in praising the Lord.
He also said that he could feel that people in the audience were having life-changing experiences which is what he hoped to achieve with this show.
