Gospel musician Winnie Mashaba recently
received an honorary doctorate from the Trinity International Bible University
(TIBU) for her work in music.
Now, the star has taken to her social media
account to share what she attributes her award to – being
disciplined and humble.
This nod has also opened new possibilities
for her which she never thought would be possible.
“I truly never thought that being
disciplined and humbled to the talent would one day give me an Honorary Doctorate
and also make me dine with Kings and highly respected leaders. Also take me and
my children in music to the places we always dreamed of ministering at. I bow
unto the Lord,” she wrote in the caption
of her a picture of herself.
Winnie is enjoying 20 years in the music
industry and remains one of South Africa’s favourite artists.
“When it started I have never felt or had
pressure to compete with anyone until today. My focus was to focus on the love
and to feed the passion that kept burning me to the extend that i would create
time and space to visit Correctional centers, orphanage homes , people who live
with disabilities, old age homes, hospitals, schools etc.. just to sing and
give motivation where is due. And all of this kept me alive in my spirit,” she
explained in another post.
