This past (19 December 2015) weekend an undertaking that can be called a historic event took place at Moses Mabhida as South Africa’s biggest contemporary gospel choir, Joyous Celebration, recorded it’s 20th installment featuring friends and former members of Joyous Celebration.
Joyous Celebration 20 is undoubtedly the most outstanding joyous celebration experience: featuring the famous Joyous Celebration Band Lungelo Ngcobo (Organs), Lebo Morolo (Snyths), Msizi Chunkie Mashiyane (Guitars) with new members Tshepo Tsotetsi (Brass and String arrangements) , Sipho Mabhena (Bass) and Thato TR Rapapane (Drum) directed by the one and only Siyanqoba Mthethwa on First Keys. Joyous’ former music director, Nqubeko Mbatha who also rendered a song with his wife Ntokozo Mbambo on JC20, paid his respects to Siyanqoba Mthethwa on the production of JC20. Nqubeko posted this on Facebook after the recording:

" Help me celebrate this brother @siyanqoba1 for an amazing work he has been doing. He carries on to be an inspiration, his hard work can’t go unnoticed. Last night at Mabhida i was keeping on asking myself ‘how do you manage to put all this music together and still manage to play it with all these amazing arrangements so well’ Indeed the hand of the Lord is upon you Mfwethu and Cha impela ke la ngichemile. Well done Nyambose"

The whole production of Joyous 20 was world class. Joyous fans on social media have been expressing their ‘blow-away-ness’ by the performance of Joyous Celebration members and it’s former members and friends. Some of these friends included South African house musician Zakes Bantwini who is well known for "Watsing my Time" which he released in 2012 and dance choreographer Somizi. There were mixed feelings on social media about this as some felt that Joyous was ‘taking it too far’. What is you take on this?
