SMILEY AND PERFECT GOSPEL (article first published : 2001-11-18)

Every Wednesday on the City Hall Steps, Durban Arts Association proudly presents the extended Durban Arts Lunch Hour Concert, supported by the Royal Netherlands Embassy. The new format sees a young curtain raiser group perform at 12h45 followed by the main attraction.

The next concert on November 21 will feature Durban-born singer Nomathemba “Smiley” Kunene as well as the 14-member Mighty Perfect Gospel group.

Smiley Kunene started singing as the early age of 10 in church and at school. She obtained a National Diploma in light music at Technikon Natal in 1993. Her first professional stage appearance was in 1994 at Belgica Hotel as the lead singer for a year. The multi-talented artist has also appeared in many productions such as The Wiz and Maru at the Playhouse. She also performed on the Starlight Cruise Line, which travelled from Madagascar, Zanzibar to Mauritius for six months. Over the past couple of years, she has performed in the Middle East in Abudhabi, Bahrain and Dubai.

Founded by keyboard player Alfred Ndlovu, Mighty Perfect Gospel was formed with six singers in 1996 in Cato Manor outside Durban. They have appeared at the BAT Centre, in road shows around Durban and in the Eastern Cape.
