No Joyous Celebration at this year’s Trade Fair

Joyous Celebration

By Siphesihle Dlamini

The organisers of the Eswatini International Trade Fair have cancelled the Joyous Celebration show which was set for Mavuso Trade and Exhibition Centre.

This was confirmed through a statement jointly released by the Eswatini International Trade Fair and Umvini Events Management. The South African popular Gospel group was meant to dish out a fine performance on September 3.

According to the statement, the decision to cancel the show was triggered by activities happening at the Trade Fair, which have similar public interest, and it was observed that hosting the show would be non-viable, especially on the scheduled date.

Outstandingly, Joyous Celebration fans who had already purchased entry tickets were promised to be given their money back and were further advised to contact EIPA offices to ensure that their refund was processed.

The original ticket (whether print or electronic) purchased will be required for confirmation and verification.

“We would like to extend our sincere apologies to Gospel lovers as this decision was not taken lightly, careful consideration was taken in reaching the final outcome,” reads the statement.

Joyous Celebration is a multi-award-winning Gospel group composed of multi-talented artists. The group is known for welcoming new members almost every year.

The group produces dynamic singers and musicians whose music has impacted many people worldwide.
