Dr Tumi dominated at the 9th SABC Crown Gospel Music Awards at the ICC in Durban by taking five trophies, including the coveted Song of the Year for his hit Nothing Without You.

The medical doctor-turned-musician was almost out of words each time he was called up to receive yet another award.

Lebo Sekgobela took the Best Female Artist award.

Earlier on Sunday, streets in Durban were buzzing as gospel stars scrambled for last-minute votes from fans.
