Tope Alabi, Mercy Chinwo, Mama Fasoyin Wow Congregation At Praise Concert

Published

The Trinity House organised 24-hour Praise Concert retained an infectious vivacity, enabling members of the church and the visitors to celebrate.

Only in its second year, the 24-Hour Praise concert, ran on the theme, ‘Power of Praise’. You may be forgiven if you haboured reservations about how the organisers, Pastor Ituah and Ibidunni Ighodalo-led Trinity House were going to retain vivacity in the assembly for 24 hours. With the help of the church’s Music Minister, Tosin Alao, it turned out that all members of the church and the visitors came there to celebrate.

Managing close to 30 artistes is a tough assignment by any standard, but Alao and his team made it a great experience for everyone.

It’s not easy to find a great experience as was created at the Trinity House 24-Hour Praise. The atmosphere was genuinely charged with an air of positivity. Many stood with their hands held high in the air, when Minister Chigozie sang Jonathan David and Melissa’s popular anthem, ‘No Longer A Slave’. One of the most celebrated artiste of the night was Tope Alabi.  She was able to secure participation of the audience. You couldn’t sit down, even if you wanted. Persuaded to return for an encore, Alabi hit the crowd with her hit tune, ‘E Gbega, E Gbega’. The involvement of the people with Tope Alabi took a new turn when she gave a new interpretation to the prevalent ‘Shaku Shaku’ dance. According to her, the dance can be found in the Bible and it was first performed by David. She said the dance should be rightly called ‘Segun Segun’ (Dance of Victory and not ‘Shaku Shaku’, which refers to remnants and wastes).

Other Artistes that performed include

Empraiz, bitayo Jeje, better known as the Highlife Queen gave an excellent account of herself. Next was Mercy Chinwo and her team who delivered a powerful ministration. Psalmos and Tim Godfrey who just bagged a PhD from American University serenaded.

The organisers kept the renowned Mrs. Deborah Adebola Fasoyin and the Good Women Choir a worthwhile secret. One of their best known songs, ‘Odun Nlo Sopin’ which was released over 30 years ago to popular acclaim, was given a new verve at the concert.
