A group of gospel music singers under the aegis of Unusual Praise has called on journalists to assist in propagating the paramount aspect of praising God in the group, Augustina Igbokwe who made the call in Onitsha, Anambra State during their ongoing unusual Praise concert 2022 taking place at the Basilica of the Most Holy Trinity, Onitsha, described the Unusual Praise concert as a non-denominational association of gospel music singers.
According to Igbokwe, “We praise God through our music and we want journalists to assist in disseminating information on how to be Praising God. everyone must join us in praising God”.
The all-night-long programme attracted a good number of Gospel music singers who included Ada Jesus, Fabian Nwofor, Blessed Modesta, Nkiru Emmanuel, James Arum, Monsignor Pascal Nwaezeakpu, Steve Crown, Augustina Igbokwe, Nkwa Group, Chike Oruche, Vera Ben, Joe Vibes amongst other.
In his speech, the popular Ebube Dike Naga Global, Ambassador James Arum, revealed that all the activities in the Unusual Praise are spiritual, even as he insisted that praising God is inevitable in someone’s life.
” Whenever there is confusion and tribulations, approach God with praises, you wouldn’t know how the challenges would be surmounted. Let people resort to praises to God when unusual things occur. To get God’s heart, always sing and praise God”, Arum admonished.
The gospel music maestro advised people of God to stop apportioning blames on political leaders and government insensitivity to her citizens, saying that the only option is praise to God.
“Once you begin to praise God in a usual manner, there should be turn around and everything wouldn’t be the same again. Language is never a barrier, God accepts praise in any language. If we could praise God in the forthcoming election, God will give Nigeria a good leader in 2023”.
Also speaking, Monsignor Pascal Nwaezeakpu noted that unusual Praise is an avenue to praise God commonly, adding that Unusual praises are a spiritual event.
