Description

“To unite our world through music”

Rave comes from the Greek word ‘Halal’ which means to shine, rave and to worship even to the point of appearing foolish.

The conception of the terminology Rave has been used out of context. We now associate the word with clubbing and to the world a night we get high, drunk and get in bed with someone we won’t remember tomorrow. Rave means YOLO. Rave means spending all you have and not thinking about tomorrow. Rave means trying to impress others to try and feel some sort of worth or importance. Rave means impressing the girl next door. Rave means leaving your reality and escaping to a fantasy. Rave is the notion of fights, crimes, sex and drugs.

However when I began looking into the word in 2016, I realised that the media and culture have associated the word with a flawed society. Rave did not mean darkness but that of the light. Rave meant to shine. Rave meant to let go of all your pain and surrender it all the King of Kings. Rave meant to lay down all your heavy burdens and believe that the creator is there to take the heavy weight. Rave is when you keep dancing even if that means you must look a fool. Rave is when you worship and give the glory that is due the king.

SCG has constructed Rave to be a night where we all come together in unity and have fun. We would have our gospel grime, Afro beats, house, pop, country; you name it, we have it. A night where we celebrate the dawning of a year and give God thanks for how far we have come and for the dreams we plan to achieve next year. It is a night we let our hair down and enjoy the beauty of true music. There will be entertainment, food and drinks.
