Afro Soul Gospel Band - King William's Town


SSPEL stands for Spreaders of Gospel; it’s an afro gospel music group consisting of 6 male vocalists. This group was formed in a rural area of Eastern Cape called Ndevana, and it was formed by Khayalethu Ngalonkulu and Sipheni Baku-Baku. In 2013 after spotting and meeting other male musicians in different churches from their community, Khayalethu and Sipheni decided to start a music group that will spread good news with an objective of inspiring other young people from their community and that was the birth of SSPEL. The group has since grown to be well known, recognised and loved mostly in the Eastern Cape for their unique sound of Gospel. Their sound involves various elements and genres such as: Afro Pop, Jazz, Afro Soul, RNB and Gospel and they call their music Soul Praise / Afro Gospel

SSPEL has performed in small and big stages mostly in Johannesburg and Eastern Cape, sharing the stage with the likes of Khaya Mthethwa, the late Sfiso Ncwane, Judith Sephuma, Solly Mahlangu, Bethusile Mcinga, Dumi Mkokstad, Dr Tumi, Joyous Celebration, Mabongi, Afrotraction, Lebo Sekgobela, Amanda Black, Sjava, Sands etc.

In 2015 SSPEL recorded their first single at Downtown Studios in Johannesburg with 2 songs like: INDUMISO and COMING BACK and this project gave them wonderful response from music lovers around the country. These songs received radio airplay on stations like SABC Radio Umhlobo Wenene FM, Link FM, Fort Hare FM and other community radio stations in the Eastern Cape. These 2 songs both had music videos, and both music videos are still play-listed on One Gospel TV channel.

In 2016 SSPEL was nominated for 2 categories at INGOMA AWARDS, for BEST GOSPEL GROUP and BEST POP/SOUL GOSPEL ALBUM. They performed on SABC TV shows, and also had an article on Drum Magazine and Daily Dispatch Newspaper. Early in 2017 SSPEL performed at Umlazi (KZN) in a special Thanks Giving and Prayer organised by Pastor Thomas Radebe from Ukhozi FM, sharing the stage with Hlengiwe Mhlaba, and they did several unplugged sessions in community radio stations in Eastern Cape.

The biggest highlights for SSPEL this far are: Performing at STANDARD BANK JOY OF JAZZ 2017 (One of the biggest Jazz Festival in Africa) and also performing at Berlin November 2017 (One of the biggest Horse Racing Festival in Eastern Cape). SSPEL has just released their new single called IMIZAMO and the song is receiving amazing love from the fans already, and currently working on their debut album which will be released before the end of this year.
