Hymnodia reality TV show gets PFN endorsement
Impressed with outcome of the maiden edition, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), has endorsed Hymnodia, the first-ever reality TV show created around hymns and worship and wished it many more life impacting seasons in its journey of reigniting the culture of hymn singing in worship. PFN is the umbrella body of pentecostal churches in Nigeria,
In a letter to the organisers, Philosoville Limited, the National President of PFN, Rev. Dr. Felix Omobude, said, “We congratulate you for the giant strides you are making. We are excited at this bold initiative which we see as a great tool for not only bringing back into the mainstream of praise and worship experience the rich culture of hymns.”
Rev. Omobude informed that, “the PFN is particularly pleased that not only are the youths being encouraged to imbibe the culture of worship through hymns, families are able to bond through such an edifying and entertaining program. The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria is pleased to be associated with your initiative. We endorse Hymnodia and we look forward to partnering with you in areas of mutual interest as the program develops.”
Reacting to the development, Kufre Ekanem, Managing Director of Philosoville Limited and Initiator of Hymnodia, said, “Our entire team is blown away by this gesture by the PFN and the privilege given to us to address their last national council meeting on our dreams towards hymns. As a first-of-its-kind initiative, we have been tremendously thrilled by the depth and spread of welcome that Hymnodia has received in just its first season across geographies, demographics and denominations.
This endorsement by PFN brings yet another different dimension entirely and it is most encouraging.”
Won by Kenneth Ekhuemelo, a 25-year-old bassofundo and organist, the show was broadcast on 10 television channels across the country with a dedicated YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/hymnodiahq), which remains available.
“Hymnodia season 1 may have ended but the hymn rebirth journey still continues between the seasons. We are most grateful for all who have supported the dream in several ways thus far. We promise an even better dimension of Triple-E benefits (entertainment, education and edification) in season 2 of Hymnodia and thereafter,” Ekanem said.
