Reasons Why Lebo Sekgobela & Dr Tumi Cancelled On A Show Because Of Somizi. According to SowetanLIVE Lebo Sekgobela and Dr Tumi cancelled a show they were booked to perfrom at because Somizi was going to be a guest pastor.
The two gospel stars alongside former Generations actress Sophie Ndaba were booked by event organiser to showcase their talents at the consecration festival of the St Oak Church of Christ in Majakaneng, Brits, on June 30 and July 1. Somizi was scheduled to be the guest preacher at the events.
The two mega gospel singers took to social media and announced their withdrawal from the event.
“Upon my instruction the office has already sent through communication to the organisers of the event concerning my decision to no longer be part of the programme. LOVE YOU AND WISH YA’LL A BEAUTIFUL WEEK,” Dr Tumi announced on Instagram.
Sekgobela followed suit.
“GREETINGS FAMILY…!KINDLY NOTE THAT IM NOT MINISTERING AT ST OAK CHURCH OF CHRIST ON THE 3OTH JUNE 2018. THE ORGANISERS HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE DECISION. GOD BLESS YOU ALL. LOVE YOU”
Ndaba said: “We booked them to perform and deposits were paid into their accounts as agreed. We then sent them a poster to advertise the event on their social media accounts. Instead, they sent me an e-mail and said they were no longer wanting to be part of the event. I think speak to Bishop [Sello] Mogodiri as he is the custodian of the event,” she said.
Mogodiri said: “If what is said on social media is true, that they didn’t want to share the stage with Somizi, then they need deliverance because Christians are not supposed to be judgmental.”
Attempts to solicit comment from Dr Tumi drew a blank. He initially asked to be called later but never responded.
Sekgobela’s husband and manager Lucky Sekgobela said they withdrew from the gig because the contract they signed with another promoter to perform in Sun City decrees that she shouldn’t showcase her talent in the area close to it or on a date that was near the event.
