The excitement is already in the air for the all-embracing and inspiration-filled festival of praise and worship tagged ‘Community Praise’.
Floated under the divine inspiration of Almighty God via the auspices of ace gospel musician, Biyi Samuel, 12 years ago, this year’s event is coming up with a big bang on November 6th, 2016 at the Bamboo Hall, Omole Phase 1, Ogba, Ikeja, Lagos. The event is a product of genuine and sincere thinking by the spiritually-gifted gospel musician through a vision of a ‘Praise & Worship’ forum, where many acts of different denominations and music genres will converge in the praise of Almighty God and in a convivial atmosphere. This year’s event will however be a sharp departure from previous editions, because of its new coloration, as it will be infused with English and Yoruba gospel singing acts; just as movie acts of different genres will be showcased. Also expected to grace the event, are celebrities and dignitaries from showbiz background.
A joint coordinator of the event, Korede Matanmi, spoke on the very expectant success of the upcoming event, believing that sponsorship of the event has always come from God, but donations are welcomed from individuals and interested patrons of the event. The ‘Community Praise’ idea is not limited to the confines of Nigeria, as it will transmute to other countries in the very near future. There is therefore the need for financial assistance in whatever measure to ensure a grand outing at the next event.
