Mulweli, a Sundowns fan, believes that she had to enter the competition to demonstrate her support for the club. Her father is a choir composer, conductor and founder of Thoyandou God is Love Choir which she is also a member of and felt entering this competition would be a great platform for not only herself as an individual but also for the choir to get more exposure.
The choir released three albums to date with the last one released in 2018, however they are not signed to any record label. During the composition of their song, they first searched the website for words to use in the song and the history of the club, then decided to salute Sundowns as champions and saluted Mr Motsepe and the coach.
Winning in their language category, Venda means a lot to the group as this not only brings them money but will eventually open more doors for then to sing at events as the current situation has taken a toll on the group’s ability to generate income. The money will go towards getting uniforms and food for the choir members who are unemployed.
“One of our goals is to get our own transport so should we win the R1 million we will buy a bus to be able to travel to concerts outside of Venda and use the other portion to start a business that will guarantee continued income to sustain the choir.”
