JOHANNESBURG – Gospel sensation Dr. Tumi has fulfilled his goal of filling the 20, 000 seater TicketPro Dome on Sunday night.
He became the first gospel singer, and the second African artist after rapper Cassper Nyovest in 2015, to fill the Dome for his Gathering of Worshippers concert.
Dr. Tumi says he is grateful for the support and hopes the feat gives other aspiring stars new hope.
“Filling up the dome is like filling another venue if you think about it could be the Lyric theatre or another small theatre,” said the gospel star who is also a qualified medical practitioner.
“It’s just about do you believe it can really be done and if you do you will do it, I want to do bigger. I want to do more, just so I can encourage somebody that you don’t have to limit yourself,” he said.
Gospel lovers and industry colleagues came out in their numbers to show their support.
