Season 4

The Crown Gospel Music Awards are a platform to salute and award excellence in the Gospel Music Industry. The Awards are hosted annually with a spectacular event of music and dance.

Winners are given a symbolic crown used as a metaphor for the real crown that Gospel musicians hope to get at the end of their journey – in Heaven.

The ICC Arena on 6 November was singing the tunes of celebration and honour as giants in the gospel music industry locked horns.

The biggest award of the night was the Lifetime Achievement Award. This year it was awarded to Lindelani Mkhize. His predecessors - Rebecca Malope, Benjamin Dube and Sizwe Zako - set a high bar for him.

His involvement in music, especially the gospel genre, speaks volumes. Mkhize was the unanimous choice among the Crown judges. His Best Contribution to African Gospel award at the 2nd Africa Gospel Music and Media Awards, reiterated the judges' choice.

Solly Mahlangu proved to be the judges' and the public's favourite this year as he walked away with the coveted Best Gospel Artist award. Sipho Makabane won the title last year. The Siyabonga Jesu star scooped most of the awards including Best Gospel Song and Best Male Gospel Artist.

In the three new categories this year - Best Gospel TV Show, Best Gospel Radio Show and Best Gospel Community Radio Show - the public had to vote and the ultimate winners were One Gospel's House of Praise, Ukhozi FM's Indumiso and Vibe FM's Umthombo Wokuphila, respectively.

The couple Nqubeko Mbatha and Ntokozo Mbambo took home the awards for Best Gospel Producer and Classic of All Times respectively. A superb finish to celebrate Mbambo's birthday.

From outside our borders Swaziland's Bakhe Dlamini held his country's flag up high as he walked away with Best Newcomer while Moipei Quartet took the Best of Africa award all the way to Kenya.

The Government of KwaZulu-Natal once again threw its weight behind one of the province's highlights, the Crown Gospel Music Awards.

About the Awards

The Crown Gospel Music Awards are a platform to salute and award excellence in the Gospel Music Industry. The Awards are hosted annually with a spectacular event of music and dance.

Winners are given a symbolic crown used as a metaphor for the real crown that Gospel musicians hope to get at the end of their journey – in Heaven.

The Crown Gospel Music Awards concept is a brainchild of Zanele Mbokazi, founder and President of the World Gospel Powerhouse. The idea came about in 2006 and two years later the first ceremony was held in 2008, in the presence of thousands of gospel music loyalists.

After much deliberation, knocking on various doors and endless meetings, the concept of the Gospel Music Awards showed fruition. The name of the Awards had to be chosen. It could have been he SA Gospel Music Awards but the vision was to go beyond RSA borders. Then Reflections Gospel Awards also came up, but something was missing.

Crown Gospel Music Awards sounded aspirational and attainable. The Crown (Umqhele) signifies the ultimate award that will be adorned to all His servants in Heaven on the last day.

The idea was, and still is, to salute the sons and daughters in the gospel music industry under various categories. To date the Awards boasts more than 30 categories.

The winners are awarded a Crown, for their sterling contribution in the gospel music industry.
