Pastor Lungi Ndala continues to take the gospel industry by storm.

Pastor Lungi Ndala wins Album of the year at the INGOMAs 2016

Pastor Lungi’s debut album - My Worship Beyond which garnered him eight nominations and won ALBUM OF THE YEAR at the annual Independent National Gospel Music Awards (INGOMA) which were held on August 27, 2016 in Kyalami. Pastor Lungi, who is also a preacher, songwriter, producer, dancer and marketing specialist and graphic designer, emerged as the leading artist from the Ingomas Nomination party with eight nominations.
Pastor Lungi is on cloud nine over his award. The artist from Tzaneen, Limpopo and now based in Midrand has expressed delight over his winning.
“Just to be nominated is humbling. But to win the album of the year is just amazing. It says to you that there are people who are looking at your work and they are recognizing the efforts that you have put into your craft. I am excited to have won. I guess it also serves as an inspiration to other young people to say they can also do it,” said an elated Pastor Lungi.
“I am grateful to the public. They have been phenomenal towards supporting My Worship Beyond. Their continued support is what has made the album a success. I hope we will continue to dish out music that comes straight from the throne room of heaven and not disappoint as well. I am also grateful to all the media outlets – newspapers, websites, TV and radio station for great support, said Pastor Lungi, who has urged the public to vote for him.
Pastor Lungi has graced big stages with his musical graft. He says his album has opened more doors for him.
“Hard work, God’s favour and God’s timing make everything a success. That’s what I have seen. I am just overwhelmed and humbled by the response and love that the album has received from the album. So many doors have been opened. I have been privileged to be a part of Joyous Celebration 20 recording and to perform to thousands of people at Moses Mabhida was phenomenal. I have also performed in front of close to 20 000 people at Grace Bible Church’s Good Friday Conference at Orlando Stadium. I have performed at government events, churches and on many stages. I have been blessed,” said Pastor Lungi.
Last year in November Pastor Lungi was nominated three times at the SABC Gospel Grown Awards, where his album won the Best Engineered Album category. He was also received a nomination for Best Xitsonga Gospel Song at the annual Xitsonga Music Awards. Pastor Lungi is currently leading God Reigns International Church in Samrand, Centurion.
