Solly's Sunday Service

This being Sunday, how about a little bit of religion? Here are some uplifting sounds from one of the biggest acts on the South African gospel scene, Solly Moholo (or Solomon Molokoane to give him his real name).

"Baruti Rutang Sechaba" - Solly Moholo (from "Motlhang Ke Kolobetswa")

"Wena Kgosi Modimo Wa Bophelo" - Solly Moholo (from "Jesu Ba Mmitsa Tsotsi")

Solly is a jolly looking chap, although his jolliness must have been severely tested when he was subjected to a three-hour hostage ordeal last November. He presumably wasn't able to deter them by wearing the police hat that he is normally seen in all the time - as in the clip below - but fortunately the villians were fans and he survived.

As a bonus for any lovers of the Lord out there, here is the track that won the prestigious Best Tsonga language gospel song at the 2005 Xitsonga Music Awards.

"Hundzuluka" - Rev. Tshawane
