Gospel Music Unfold

Tag Archives: Nigeria

 

April 1st 2019, International Music Mentorship platform GosGem visits Nigeria for a symposium targeting the development of Gospel Music in the World, tagged, ‘The Effulgence’.

The symposium hosted by SINACH JOSEPH will feature a star-studded line up with speakers like Don Moen (US), TY Bello (Nigeria),  Danny Duncan (USA), Linus Idahosa (Nigeria), Lynda St. Nwafor (MTN), Adlan Cruz (USA), Lovelace Lovelace (USA), Evang. Kathy Woghiren ( Director, Loveworld Music), Frank Edwards, Dee Jones, PeeYuu, JoePraize and others. The event is set to redefine and upgrade the Gospel Music space in Africa.

The Head of PR for Gosgem Concepts, Mr. Eric, explained that with the undeniable rise in the curation of Gospel Music content across global platforms from Africa, Gosgem seeks to consolidate and expand this growth by bridging the gap between the content creators (Artists) and stakeholders in the industry, and creating a network of resourceful mentors across the globe.

Organizing this Symposium on the backdrop of Sinach’s Live in Concert March 30th, Eric Anthony highlights Sinach’s achievements as phenomenal and worthy of study, as she is the first Nigerian Gospel singer to cross the 100 Million views mark on a single track on YouTube, 3rd Artist in Nigeria, and just recently overtook Yemi Alade’s Johnny to clinch the title of most watched female artist video on YouTube.

Holding at The Wheatbaker Hotel, the Symposium is for all aspiring and established artists, labels, Artist managers, brand managers, and interested members of the public.

Founder and senior Pastor of World Changers Church International (WCCI), Creflo Dollar lauded Nigerian Pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo and the entire Commonwealth Of Zion Assembly (COZA, Nigeria) as he preached about the grace of God a few days ago. Pastor Creflo needed to sight an example and the case study that popped up in his mind was of COZA and so he shared:






“I went to Nigeria and I’ve never, never ever in my life been treated with such excellence everywhere in the world. Never have I seen this. Never experienced it. And I thought I would never experience it. I think it’s in Ibadan now, no not Ibadan (where, where’s it?). It was the capital of Nigeria … Huh, huh, Abuja! I was in Abuja and I went to this church, I think the name of the church was COZA. You ever heard of that? In Abuja Nigeria, COZA…”





“…I have never experienced, the level of excellence blew my mind! I’m talking about ‘BLEW MY MIND!’. So when I got there I’m thinking mehn, this guy, I don’t know who he’s been listening to to preach the Gospel of Christ but they have done a fine job teaching him”


See video below:




Biodun Fatoyinbo could not hold back tears when he found this video where Creflo Dollar lauded his zeal and dexterity in preaching the word of God and so he let them roll down his eyes as he shared:






“I just shed tears and I am totally humbled. Guys, keep doing things right, there is always a reward for it. Honour is my secret. I have been so blessed and lifted just by honouring people. I have been rewarded with honour too. I have seen a crazy dimension of honour in my life. I’m just so grateful! Thank you Jesus! Stand by your values, you may be criticized or mocked at first, but in the end you’d be copied! Blessings!”

Frank Edwards however, shared the same video an hour after Pastor B did and made a pretty good comment about the man of God saying:

“This made me very happy sir. Now people can hear what I’ve been saying from a higher authority!!!”
