Pursuant to the overriding vision of preserving the destinies of youth from decadence through church-based programmes, the leadership of the Youth Alive Fellowship under the presidency of Dcn Shofela Shodunke in the year 2007, was saddled with the responsibility of engineering specialized programmes that will enable youths to realize and maximize their potentials in God. While still brooding over this noble idea and believing God for specific direction, it was observed in 2008 that the secular world was providing platforms like the Nigerian Idol and Project Fame for young people to express their talents but was to the detriment of the Kingdom where those talents came from. At that point, it became imperative that we have a kingdom response, however little, to counter the trend.
Several brainstorming sessions involving great minds like were held and the largest gospel music talent hunt in northern Nigeria – Bezaleel Gospel Music Talent hunt was birthed. The Grand prize is N300,000 and 120,000 and 80,000 naira for 1st and 2nd runner-ups respectively, without mouth-watering consolation prizes and record deals.
