It is not Easter as usual to the South African faith-based community this year due to the national lockdown following the Covid-19 outbreak. But, seemingly, it’s not all doom and gloom after all as worshippers have an opportunity to connect deeply with their faith through virtual spiritual services.
Renowned gospel singer Ntokozo Mbambo announced today that she has partnered with Telkom Plus, a subscription-only content platform that offers daily video content, gaming, sports, music and more to deliver an Easter Sunday Praise and Worship Service on the 12th April 2020.
So glad to announce my partnership with @TelkomZA. On Easter Sunday at 5pm (CAT) I will be celebrating in a first-time 100% digital concert available to all #Telkom subscribers. For only R20 you can take your seat

Mbambo is one of the most loved gospel acts in the country. She built her name as a vocalist for the South African Gospel choir Joyous Celebration and has since gone on to have an illustrious solo career, with her recent song “Jehovah is your name” being viewed over 25 million times on Youtube.
Her partnership with Telkom will not only bring Easter to people’s homes but will connect people deeply to their faith.
“Easter Holidays are a special period for many South Africans. This is the time where churchgoers gather and worship. Due to social gatherings being banned including annual spiritual Easter activities, as per the national lockdown, Easter won’t be the same this year. We want to ensure that our customers are still able to worship in the comfort of their homes during this time,” says Wanda Mkhize – Executive for Content & VS Gaming at Telkom.
Ntokozo will be performing from the comfort of her home and her performance will be streamed Live exclusively on Telkom Plus.
