Gospel singer and minister of the word, Jabu Hlongwane, a popular senior member of Joyous Celebration, shared some insights on feminism at a Women’s Month event in Gqeberha (PE) last Saturday.
Some of the women in Nelson Mandela Bay kicked off the month of August by having breakfast with the legendary Hlongwane at an elegant event organised by the PE North Circuit of the Methodist Church in South Africa to celebrate Women’s Month. The event in Nongoza Jebe Hall, New Brighton was emceed by Kekeletso Mthathi of Umhlobo Wenene FM.
Some of the attendees expressed their excitement to meet Hvlongwane who was the guest of honour and he didn’t disappoint as he was very interactive and engaging with the audience.
Hlongwane’s initially spoke on gender-based violence, but he went on to emphasise that women should not keep on looking down on themselves but rather raise their standards. Under his topic titled “I too celebrate women”, Hlongwane also spoke about the importance of women embracing who they are and and always walking tall and regard themselves as queens.
He also shared how he wished women would use their strength and independence to pursue their goals and empower themselves.
Unfortunately, due to time delays Hlongwana couldn’t sing.
This event was also enhanced by the presence of the local jazz-singing sensational, Nomabhotwe, who serenaded guests with her inspirational IsiXhosa lyrics.
“With the ongoing gender-based violence in South Africa such events help to empower women in all aspects of life” said one of the event organisers, Nosipho Zilwana.
The organisers hope to see more and more women uniting to encourage, uplift and empower one another.
Noxie Speelman, one of the guest speakers, shared the stage with Zilwana in an open discussion on women’s matters.
Attendees, who were dressed mostly in white and bright colours, enjoyed a full English breakfast.
