South Africa (MNN) — Music holds a special place in the lives of many Africans. Unathi Sithole, host of the TWR Africa show Worship Connection, says, “When we’re going through trials and tribulations as Africans, music is sort of our first stop. In trials, we travail through music. When there is a joyful moment happening in our lives, we express that through music. Just going through an ordinary day, music happens to be a big part of that experience.”
Worship Connection, produced in South Africa, can be heard throughout most of the African continent. It features African Christian music as well as commentary and interaction with listeners. The show aims to reach people who are curious about Christianity and also to encourage believers.
But North American listeners can benefit from this show as well. Sithole says, “Music is important to us, as the Body of Christ worldwide. I think ultimately, we want to also bring the African flavor, the African sound to the show. We’re hoping that we can educate our North American listeners, who perhaps may not be familiar with some of our African songs, our African worship music, and Gospel music.”
