Nigerian Gospel music minister of international renown, Nathaniel Bassey, has kicked off yet another 21 day Hallelujah Challenge particularly to deal with the current state of the nation.
The last edition, which kicked off just hours ago at 12 midnight, was in response to the recent spate of police brutality and oppression of citizens in Nigeria, which escalated last night after soldiers were deployed on a mission to disperse protesters, leading to almost 80 deaths and counting.
The HALLELUJAH CHALLENGE started in May 2017 with a simple post on his Instagram page where Nathaniel Bassey signaled his intention to start a 30-day midnight praise challenge throughout the month of June. It went on to become a social media frenzy attracting a very large audience.
As at the beginning of the maiden edition, CNN observed that around 68,000 people joined the Instagram live stream, while over 50,000 joined the Facebook live stream. In an interview which followed shortly after, Nathaniel Bassey told CNN:
“I had a sense which is the leading of the spirit to praise God the whole of this month,”
The HALLELUJAH CHALLENGE has however gone further to become one of the hallmarks of the Nathaniel Bassey ministry, with several more editions being done between May 2017 and now.
It is our hope that this new wave will bring about a rebirth and a change in the right direction for Nigeria.
