Artistes lift souls at Undiluted Worship Warfare
It was a soul lifting evening filled with songs, dance, and fun at the Redeem Christian Church of God, Higher Heights, Jakande Estate, Lagos, as Bukola Olubona popularly called Oyigiyigi, in partnership with the Kingdom Music Foundation, hosted the maiden edition of evening of worship tagged Undiluted Worship Warfare.
With Pastor Tunde Olubona as host, the concert, which lasted into the late hours of the day, was anchored by popular on air personality, Omotunde Adebowale David otherwise known as Lolo 1. The event saw members of KMF, including the president, Broda Martyns, Vice President Bukola Olubona, Chuks Chudibe, Chidi Jahman and other gospel greats such as Faith Ajiboye, Kindsley Ike took turns to revere God on stage with undiluted worship.
Speaking on the initiative, the convener, Olubona, said, “Undiluted Worship Warfare is a pure worship that bring down the presence of God. This is going to be a monthly programme; the next one will take place in Ikeja. God lives in praise; the only food we can give to God is worship and that is why we are bringing people together to praise Him. In this kingdom, we believe in the strength of God.”
“KMF has achieved a lot, I don’t think there is any ministry that has not benefited from the ministry of KMF. Our vision is to encourage upcoming artistes to interpret the new vision because we have a lot of people in the industry whose focus is to enrich their pockets, but we want the artistes to get the true meaning of the vision. We want everybody to hear about KMF as a platform for both existing artists and upcoming artistes. The objective actually is to give up and coming gospel artistes support so that they too can have the same strength the established acts have.”
According to Evangelist Chuks Chidube aka Praise Channel, “This programme is just to express ourselves before God, praising him, appreciating him because he’s being so faithful. It’s not every time we gather to ask him to give us something, He’s been giving us things we didn’t ask for so, we are here to totori him in our worship, praise and in song.”
On why the Nigerian gospel artistes are not given so much prominence like their counterparts in the circular music, he said, “Sincerely, our gospel music is doing well across the world. Our artistes are getting millions of views on YouTube, but the issue here is that secular organisation and institution like to partner with secular artistes; they hardly make gospel artistes brand ambassadors. Not that we are not doing well, we travel all over the world to minister, but many of the brand here don’t like to invest in gospel music because they don’t want to project the gospel.”
He continued: “Some radio stations will tell you they can only play gospel music only on Sundays; even television stations don’t give us opportunity to minister, but they play Whine your bum bum from Monday to Saturday; it’s unfortunate. I just launched Praise Channel Internet radio last month, we are broadcasting across the world 24 hours every day and we are doing our best.”
Speaking on the programme, president of KMF Dr. Broda Martins, said, “we are called to sing the praise of God. KMF has a lot of music ministers both legendary and the upcoming artists so, our business is to carry the praise of God to as many altar as He opens the door to do so. KMF is open to gospel artistes and music ministers looking for a platform to join.”
