Sechaba – No Turning Back!

Yet another article from The SCOAN’s new publication, ‘Read Us’, detailing the extraordinary story of South African Gospel star, Sechaba, and his life-changing visit to The SCOAN!

From both physical and spiritual perspectives, Sechaba Pali’s road to success has been a rough one, fraught with many hurdles and stumbles. Recently crowned the new king of the South African Gospel scene after winning the coveted award for Best Traditional Gospel Album at the MTN South African Music Awards, the street-boy turned gospel-sensation has much to thank God for. His remarkable story, one of both stardom and salvation, serves to remind us that success is not to be measured by our popularity before men but our position before God.

Sechaba was a pastor’s kid in name but not in nature. “I grew up in a gospel house,” he reminisced in an exclusive chat with Read Us, “but I wasn’t following what they were saying. After singing and playing the keyboard, I would go and smoke with my friends.” After being kicked out of school due to poor grades and even worse behavior, he was forced by his parent’s financial incapability to look for a job at the age of 15. Searching for greener pastures, Sechaba headed for Johannesburg only to discover that employment was more difficult to come across in Jo’burg than it had been in the Free State. Faced with the hardships and prejudices of a city where he knew no one, Sechaba was ultimately forced to live on the streets with no money even to return home. “I slept on the streets for two and a half years,” he reflected.Living under a bridge in Balfour Park, the bitter cold of night left Sechaba without sleep and hope. Realizing how his other colleagues survived the cold nights, he soon resorted to hard drugs each night to keep himself warm. “I joined the drugs company and that’s only when I was able to sleep.”

Whilst smoking, he and his new acquaintances would often sing together in the cold night to comfort themselves. Noticing the uniqueness of Sechaba’s powerful voice, a local street vendor who sold her food near to his bridge offered Sechaba free food if he would agree to sing for her. “I started to enjoy singing – because I know if I sing, I will get a plate to eat!” Earning a living through washing taxi cars, Sechaba then met a man who went beyond just acknowledging his raw singing talent. Taking Sechaba to Downtown Music Warehouse, a haven for both new and established musicians, the man literally dumped him at their doorsteps and drove off. Sighting a group of singers, he followed them to an area where new artists were to register. After much perseverance and a touch of providence, Sechaba ended up being given a job as a cleaner, and accommodation by the lady who worked in the kitchen. “Then they promoted me from cleaning to cooking – so I was delivering the food to the artists,” he remarked whimsically.

The new job paved way for Sechaba to showcase his talent, as he knew whenever singing auditions would take place. A breakthrough came on the day of auditioning for Joyous Celebration, the renowned and record-breaking collaboration of South African gospel talent. “On the day of auditions for Joyous, I was there to bring them food. There was a guy who was singing and I didn’t like the way he sang – and it was a song I loved so much. So I approached one of the members there – can I sing that song. They laughed at me and said – you are a cook, you don’t know how to sing. But Lindelani Mtinzi overheard and said – ok, sing for me. So I went to the mic, closed my eyes and sang. I was just remembering the way I used to sing by myself at home. When I opened my eyes, everyone was just clapping their hands and shouting. That is how Joyous took me.”

Within a month, Sechaba went from singing on the streets to performing at a gospel festival in London, singing before thousands with Joyous Celebration. “In London, it happened that I was the one singing the song they chose to play on TV. So everybody could see me – even in my hometown.” Sechaba rocketed to fame. Before long, Tshepo Nzimande, coincidentally one of the people he used to wash cars for, offered him a solo deal with Bula Music. His debut album, ‘Sechaba’ became a hit, selling more than 500,000 copies and firmly establishing him in the heart of the South African Gospel scene.

But, although Sechaba was singing gospel with his mouth, his heart was still far from it. “I wasn’t a Christian and I hadn’t accepted Jesus. I was just doing my own thing.” Still addicted to smoking, his troubled past soon took its toll as Sechaba began to fall into disrepute as the ‘bad boy of gospel’, with regular reports of his misbehavior and numerous car crashes hitting the tabloids and staining his image. His popularity was soaring but peace and purpose were still elusive.

However, providence was arranging a trip for Sechaba that would release him into his true calling – his divine calling. As Sechaba slotted in a DVD he had been given of Prophet T.B. Joshua of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, little did he know that in faraway Lagos, Nigeria, T.B. Joshua had seen him singing on the One Gospel music channel, and had received divine instruction to invite him to the church. “I saw him doing very wonderful miracles,” Sechaba remarked. “People were always telling me it is magic – that no pastor can do that. But I needed to see this magic. I said that I would love to see this prophet one day.” Shortly afterwards, South African businessmen Tim Tibeila contacted the singer to say that Prophet T.B. Joshua had invited him to Nigeria. Divine arrangement was at work.

In March 2009, Sechaba arrived in Lagos, not realizing the trip he was embarking on was set to change his life and reignite his unique career. “When I arrived, I fought with the guys outside because I needed to go and smoke. I didn’t know I was going to be delivered from smoking,” he chuckled. During the Sunday Service, he received prayer from Prophet T.B. Joshua and fell instantly to the ground under the power of the Holy Spirit. “To tell you the truth, by the time the prophet prayed for me, I didn’t know what happened. I had been to a lot of churches and a lot of pastors have prayed for me. I always saw people falling – but I told myself there is no pastor that can pray for me and I will go down like that.”

Rising tearfully from the prayer, Sechaba mumbled almost incoherently to the prophet: “I want to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour.” Taking him to the altar of the church, the prophet calmly told him, “You just confess Him and accept Him here and let us pray for you.” Suddenly realizing the gravity of his former lifestyle, Sechaba began to publicly repent and acknowledge his need for a Saviour. “It’s God who made me a musician,” he sobbed. “I didn’t know that every time I smoke, I’m taking God far away from me.” Reassuring him, the prophet told him to sing a song as a declaration of his new stand: ‘I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back’. As Sechaba’s sonorous voice resonated throughout The SCOAN arena in a truly heart-felt rendition that brought many of the congregation to tears, he felt a change within him. “To tell you the truth – it was the first time I was singing and feeling the Holy Spirit all over my body. The day that I accepted Jesus was the first time I felt my voice hitting my heart.”

The congregation and viewers worldwide who were part of the live service on Emmanuel TV joined in prayer for Sechaba, led by Prophet T.B. Joshua. “Father, we thank You for coming into his heart. Continue to strengthen him – strengthen his desire and his determination for You only. He has decided to follow You.” The prophet then exhorted the singer to stay true to his promise to never go back to the world, encouraging Christians worldwide to remember him in their prayers. “The life he has started now – the beginner is not the owner but the finisher.” Immediately following the prayer, Sechaba’s urge to smoke miraculously disappeared. “Since I was prayed for, I never felt anything like pain. It’s like I’ve been born not smoking,” he joyfully testified.

Upon leaving The SCOAN, Sechaba continued his career, but this time with a significant change. Going into the studio to work on his third album, the atmosphere was palpably different. “It was in that moment that I realised I had never felt what I was singing about until right there and then. It was the first time and everyone started crying. I had goose bumps throughout the recording.” The album, Umanghihambe Nawe (My Walk With God), received rave reviews and catapulted Sechaba to even greater heights of awareness and acclaim. But a bigger accolade was on its way.

On 16th April 2010, competing against some of the South African Gospel heavyweights, Sechaba walked away with a SAMA Award for Best Traditional Gospel Album, a remarkable achievement for the relatively new artist. He attributes the victory to his new-found walk with God following his life-changing visit to The SCOAN. “I see myself as nothing but a pencil in the hands of God. He is using me to reach out to the masses out there. I am happy that I have won an award, however the greatest award is the one that I will get in heaven for fulfilling my calling. And I do not take the glory; it is only through Him that I managed to win this award. His timing is never early or late,” said Sechaba when asked how he felt about winning the award.

When Read Us asked Sechaba to sum up his experiences at The SCOAN and his prospects for the future, his reply echoed the truly remarkable transformation. “I was a gospel artist before, but now I am a worshipper…”

Live long Sir and we thank God for using u. You are a father to many. All over the world. SWAZILAND’S CALLING YOUR NAME!!

  • i thank God almighty for your life it is a big decision you have took God bless you.

  • Merania

    This is Great, our JESUS IS A JESUS OF MIRACLES as it is writen in 1 Samuel 2 verse 8 “He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
    he seats them with princes
    and has them inherit a throne of honor.
    “For the foundations of the earth are the LORD’s;
    upon them he has set the world.

    If JESUS CAN DO this to this guy he can do it even to me and to everyone. Thank you Pastor T.B. Joshua for being used by the almighty to help the unbelivers and the belivers, for bringing us all close to the Lord. This has taken me to a new level of faith.

  • sechaba you are a messenger from god i really like you an your songs may god do more on you,your songs have a message on it many more to come your make me to learn to sing

  • Patrick Pillias

    God has the capacity to call anyone in a way which pleases Him. It might be impossible to man, but to Him it works according to His will. To God we give all the glory.

  • Ngozi F.O

    Our God is good all the time. I will continue to appreciate God for what He is doing in the life of people through His able servant Prophet T B Joshua. I cant thank Him enough for He is an able God. We will continue to pray for you Bro Sechaba, as the man of God always says, the best is always yet to come.

  • iam very touched with sechabas life.its true that GOD S time is the best.i leant that if you are smocking or drinking then GOd stays far from you because he hates sin.

  • may god bless you and bless you in jesus name

  • Initially I thought all gospel singers were worshipers of God, until when I saw Sechaba being delivered by Prophet T B Joshua at the Synagogue Church of All Nations. Sechaba has been my favorite gospel singer. I was touched by the way he sung the song “I have decided to follow Jesus.” May God bless him and continue granting him the grace to preach the gospel through music. He is a wonderful singer. I wish all gospel singers could follow suit. Sechaba! God loves you! Never turn back indeed. Prophet T B Joshua is a blessing in my life. Thank you JESUS CHRIST.

  • i am so happy that God has made his son Sechaba to realise that he is not an artist but a worshipper like many other artists who only sing for money. continue brother to spread the gospel of jesus Christ, save lives and increase the family of God and he will bless you so abundantly. What i can say lastly to brother Sechaba is to humble yourself before the lord he will lift you up, avoid unsaved company but preach salvation of Jesus to them. Be blessed man i also want to exalt the name of Jesus for giving the world a father, a pastor, a teacher, a prophet T.B Joshua. I always tell people that we did not have the chance to see Jesus in person, but at this time Jesus send the man of God to preach about Jesus to us to perform the miracles that jesus did because he has the fullness of the holy spirit. May God take you more and more to higher standards fight worrier for the kingdom of your father. Some of us in this world we are only surviving thru the word of God that you always minister you have tought us a lot. I believe God will still have more days of your life in this world you will live more than Abraham’s days because you are the light to the lost, we need you for us to continue to live for Christ. AMEN

  • nomzi

    Sechaba you are blessed. God has chosen you to look upon his creatures, do not make the mistake of despising upon any God’s creature. Remember that you are there because of the people. I bought two of your music videos.

    Walk tall SECHABA!!!

  • Osward katenda

    I had been looking forward to hearing about brother Sechaba after that touching day of his deliverance.Praise GOD !Indeed GOD is with us.We have the reason to praise GOD even the more.Thank you man of God and the rest of the SCOAN members there for being massengers of our king JESUS.Osward .Zambia

  • OH,MY GOD WHO MADE A BARREN LADY GIVE BIRTH TO THE TWINS IS GREAT,NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH HIM.BE BLEESED.

  • I was preparing myself to go to church when i saw Sechaba on the ground. That took my attention. I started crying when he sang that song. I also jumped when his name was called for the award. Realy our God is a good God.

  • God is wonderfull, i just pray for those who still doubt, to give their lives to Jesus, if you say the man of GOD Prophet TB Joshua is fake, it make’s me laugh because i’m sure u will search for him one day. we are bless in this our generation having Prophet like him. let’s give thanks to GOD, Prophet TB Joshua is healing many without asking for money, or praise, he gives food to many, while some of us who are good in gossiping his name, we boast around in big jeeps, we splash water on poor ones, we eat until our stomach can’t take more, we live in duplex, all that is good but, please let’s joined prophet Tb Joshua, and may he teach us through Jesus Christ how to give without pain…. how to repent from our sins and go back no more… how to leave without envy….

    Man of God May you leave long, and may God prosper you in all you do through Jesus Christ our Savior, our redeemer, our deliverer, Amen.

May I suggest you keep some copies at SCOAN Bookshop so that I can buy them whenever I have the chance of going to Lagos. Thank you.

    THE BIBLE THE BOOK WHICH HAS SURVIVED FIERCE ATTACKS AND IT CAN NOT BE DESTROYED. The Holy Bible is the living word of God and no book has survived many wars and every attack, from the time it was written by Moses. Some of the enemies of the Holy Bible, the word of the living God, King Jehoiakim who tried to destroy it by cutting it into pieces and burn it, but he could not destroy it Jeremiah 36:1-23, 28. Many people have tried to destroy it and even to day there are still people who do not want to see the Holy Bible or to hear about the word of God. Despite those attacks the Holy Bible is the book, which is the best seller in millions in the world and it is widely read and it is still existing in every corner of the world. People of God the Living God and His Word are one and it is true, it is sharper than the double edged sword. God Almighty is what he says he is.
    I saw my brother Sechaba crying because he felt that he was missing a lot from the word of God. Brother Sechaba in his presents there is joy, peace and many other spiritual blessings, which God Almighty promised to his children. Take the Word of God the standard for your life. Read it and pray all the time so that you grow. Better is not good enough but the best is yet to come

  • itumeleng stephen

    Your testimony then didn’t touch me, as I was going through my tests and testimonies were far fetched. My life was a misery and full of wrong decisions, somehow I could relate but not really believing! But now, I have lived a little longer since then……and the process has taught me that God is not a respecter of persons. Trust Him and like Sechaba and many others, even more, He shall cause your talent to put you in front of Great People.
    The God that blessed Sechaba, is our God!

  • HE SEGUIDO LA RETRANSMISION DE ESTA HISTORIA AYER, Y PUEDO DECIR QUE CADA VEZ QUE LA VEO EN EMMANUEL.TV ME PRODUCE LÁGRIMAS. PERO DIOS ES FIEL, Y PODEMOS AGRADECERLE QUE NOS BENDIJO CON UN GRAN CIERVO COMO TB JOSHUA PARA IMPACTAR Y RESTAURAR VIADAS A TRAVES DE TODO EL GLOBO TERRESTRE. GRACIAS Y MIL GRACIAS POR EL SIERVO DE DIOS. PADI, TU MUSICA EN LAS MANOS DE DIOS CAMBIARÁ MUCHAS VIDAS.

  • Simon Golo Nkhoma

    I first watched u on One Gospel&it was luv@ first hearing, so to speak. I recorded 3 of your songs including ‘Eloi Eloi’ on my phone. Being Malawian, I didn’t get anything u were singing. But wheneva I watched u sing including the response of the audience, I was moved to tears. It happened that one day I was fortunate enough to watch on Emmanuel TV a recorded programme of your visit to SCOAN. Immediately, I called my family,’Come and see my favourite artist!’ Hitherto, my brother had been teasing me why I recorded Sechaba’s songs on my phone yet I don’t understand the language. I was one of the viewers who was touched to tears watching you sing ‘I’ve decided to follow Jesus’. Your life story preached a lot to me. You r a blessing 2 mi Sechaba!

  • Kgakana Tapela

  • The programme regarding deliverance of Sechaba Pali by Prophet TB Joshua’s on Emmanuel TV made me feel electrified. I cried and I felt Holy Spirit all over me, I felt like being there at the SCOAN. Jesus Christ is alive, we have seen God through Annointed Prophet TB Joshua and the Wisemen. Jesus Christ thank You for the life of TB Joshua, Wisemen, SCOAN and Emmanuel TV. Distance is not a barrier. God bless you all. Thank you all Amen

    Greetings. i was so moved when i saw the his video, more especially when he sang the I have decided to follow Jesus. Yes is one thing to sing gospel and to preach the word and to be committed to the word. You are one the inspirational individual amongst the nation. In Jesus name do not turn back even though it may be difficult at some time all you have to do is to press on. The name of the journey and battle is to go through

    i watched Sechaba’s deliverance when it happened but even today m still touched by what happened. God’s good all the time. Thank you God for saving your son through your anointed Man of God. This video really moves me because this brother is one of my favorite gospel artists and i thank God for saving his life.Hold fast to God’s commands, you will prosper even more.Amen.

  • Sechaba that was a good turn around. I played your song ELOYI loud and Chincha was is inwardly touching. God bless and beware of the media people whose motives are to sensationalize to sell the papers but also we the celebrities should leave clean lives so that it is worth emulating. Our children look to us as their role models. I am a popular football coach and know what it takes to be scandalized or just be attacked in the press for people to view you as a disappointing personlity.

  • Madamasina Matebesi

    May the Name of the Lord be Glorified forever. The reason why Jesus rose from the dead was for us to have no shame any more for He took all shame that was suppose to fall on us. But now we have to worship Him with all the truth. With all that golden voice bring many to Him. That voice is for His Glory. Amen! Psalm 100, Psalm 103. David was a singer and a worshiper. Every time when he sang, the Lord would speak, and so David would prophesy while worshiping. He was always making God to do something as he opens his mouth to worship. So go ahead and sing with the Angels. Alleluyah Psalm 95:8-11

    God’s voice has touched many through you, even across the border in Namibia where we speak Silozi in (Caprivi Region). Since Tswana is a close relative to Silozi we can understand almost every word you sing in Tswana.
    May God continue to use you to greater heights
    Stay Blessed. Amen
