(Khaya Mthethwa)

Idols season 8 winner, Clash of the Choirs 2014 Master and South Africa’s favourite PK (Pastor’s kid), Khaya Mthethwa is set to record his first live DVD on December 4, 2015, at The Durban Christian Centre (Jesus Dome) in his hometown of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.

Born Khayelihle Mthethwa, the multi-award winning singer, instrumentalist, writer, composer and all round musician will record the one-night only spectacular show, The Uprising. He has shaken the Gospel, Afro-soul and R&B world with his commanding voice and has now set his eyes on a new bigger prize.

The Live DVD recording show is inspired by his second album, The Uprising, which he released in 2014 after the success of his debut album, For You. The hitmaker of Ushilo Wena and Settle For Less became the apple of Mzansi’s eye when he was crowned the first black winner of the renowned reality music show, Idols South Africa in 2008.

He has built a name for himself through being one of the shining stars of the multi-award winning gospel group, Joyous Celebration, which shaped his skills and musical and spiritual growth. He is also a leader and Pastor at Oasis Church in Durban.

Booking is now open at Computicket and ticket prices range from R200 to R350. For more information visit
