The day we start believing that there is one way to worship God will be the day we render God’s blessings to us as useless. Probably the best way to worship God is using a gift that He blessed you with, otherwise known as a talent. This is the reason why this past weekend we hosted our very own Talent Show where different people showcased different talents. It was not aimed at competing with each other but only on giving glory to God, having fun and enjoying fellowship as we always do.
We had wonderful performances ranging from the kids up to faculty members who blessed us with beautiful songs of worship, love songs, drama and comedy. The event kicked off at 18:00 with our very own second year student Vuyo Adams holding the fort as Master of Ceremonies. As always, he did a sterling job in keeping us wake and running the program smoothly. Kholwani Mvelase aka K-Marvellous was the first act with two amazing songs. The second song had the audience warmed up as they sang along with him in the famous lyrics “Our God is an awesome God.” It was heart-warming to see God’s word preached through gospel hip-hop music. After that the artists came in rolling like you would normally experience in national events.
We will not be doing justice if we do not specifically mention the funniest act of the night – The Krazie Kids. The kids performed a drama that had everyone in stitches. When we spoke with one of the actors’ mother she said, “Sometimes my son surprises me. He does things that leave me wondering if this really is my child.” Of course he is your son was all we could say and laugh it away. This was none other than Benjamin Mhango who was the lead actor of the Krazie Kidz group and also performed a song by himself. When you see children exerting so much confidence and creativity, you are greatly encouraged that the future looks bright for them. Benjamin and other kids gave us a reason to be really thankful for the blessing they are to us as a community and the joy they bring to us.
When people tell you that one of the qualities of most loved leaders is charisma, you have to come to African Christian College to see it first-hand. Our very last act came from the College President himself, Brad Carter. We know him as a workaholic, one who wants everything to be done to perfection and on time. Yet for one evening, he abandoned his presidency and became Brad who loves to have fun as part of worship. He engaged us in “Rocking the House as Jesus does,” an activity that had everyone sweating by the time he was done. Those who had not seen him having fun were surprised at first but ended up joining in as we danced the evening away.
The Talent Show is one of the events that we normally have for the purposes of entertainment, worshipping in various ways and helping us appreciate each other for the different talents we have. We do not promote competition but cooperation and all to be done for the glory of God our Father. Big ups to ACC!!!
