Without wasting much time, the first act of the day, Boiz Olorun” from.the Ibadan, Oyo State, lived up to their high ranking as they thrilled the crowd with their brilliant contemporary rendition of spirit-filled Apala music.
Newly signed to Tope Alabi’s Gospel Vibes label, Prince Bajowa was the next artiste that ‘blew’ the mind of the crowd with his artistic dexterity. After him, the concert convener Tope Alabi mounted the stage for her first performance. As expected the talented songstress electrified the whole atmosphere with her powerful ministration, the overwhelmed crowd demanded for more.
Afters the concert guest cleric and CLAM General Overseer, Pastor Wole Oladiyan took over for a power packed brief exhortation. Then came the music legend, evangelist (Dr.) Ebenezer Obey, a special guest artist who performed awesomely with his high profile band. Evangelist Obey handed over to Tope Alabi who came in for her second performance to raise the crescendo to greater height where Obey left it, with her scintillating performance-cum-word ministration. She wowed the crowd who were held spellbound throughout.
Immediately after her explosive performance which extended late hours of the evening came the closing prayers and benediction. It is worthy to note that the chief host and co-coordinator of “Praise the Almighty concert was Tope husband, producer and manager, Soji Alabi.
