JOYOUS Celebration co-founder and producer Pastor Jabu Hlongwane will on June 23 launch a solo album for the first time in Eswatini when he brings his latest release ‘Crosspower Experience 3’ to the Mbabane Alliance Church.

This historical launch is brought to Eswatini courtesy of Destiny Group and Crosspower Media, in partnership with Mbabane Alliance Church. Destiny Group Director Tom Lin said the event would be held at 7pm after a practical music workshop Hlongwane would facilitate at Ezulwini earlier the same day.

“Pastor Hlongwane will be bringing his live band and vocalists. Destiny Music will support with the technical and event management aspects for the show.

“We are also grateful to Mbabane Alliance Church under the leadership of Reverend JV Mazibuko for partnering with us to host this event. The event is open to the public at a fee of E100 with tickets available at Destiny Music,” he said.

In a statement from Hlongwane he described the event as historical. “The launch of my album in Eswatini is historical for me because it is actually the first time that I do a solo presentation in the kingdom,” he said.

Hlongwane said the project was special to him as it displayed his personal space and what influenced him as a musician away from other projects he did.

“The project features around three songs written by citizens of Eswatini, namely Ziyawa and Kish.


“Eswatini is slowly but surely making a difference in the song writing area in South Africa and we are all pleased,” he said.

The album has a good mix of both urban worship and praise songs and is already a hit in South Africa.

He assured everyone that the launch would be a great experience, noting that in the past he had always enjoyed performing in Eswatini with MTN Joyous Celebration and earlier with Family Factory.

This is not the first time that Destiny Music and Hlongwane have collaborated as in 2016 the MTN Joyous celebration co-founder launched his first ever book in Eswatini, thanks to the partnership.
