Internationally acclaimed gospel star, Ron Kenoly is billed to headline this year’s edition of Festival of Praise, which comes up on Sunday July 24, at Comfort Place, Addo Road, Ajah, Lagos, courtesy of the Lekki Light Centre (LLC) parish of Illumination Assembly.
Put together by Illumination Assembly also known as God First Ministries, led by Bishop Isaac Idalosa, the strictly gospel is expected to attract dignitaries from within and outside the country.
Aside US-based Kenoly, also a preacher with many hit albums to his credit, other popular home based gospel artistes will form a part of the gospel groove, already serenading Christendom.
On the festival, leader of the LLC, Idahosa, himself a gospel artiste with three albums to his credit, disclosed that all arrangements with Kenoly and the other acts expected to perform at the event had been concluded.
“At Illumination Assembly, we believe so much in using entertainment to preach the words of God. In the Bible, several great men of God did it and as a servant of God, I have deemed it fit to continue in that direction. I want to assure all those coming that this gathering is going to be a super Sunday of mega praise and power encounter. In order to control the crowd, we have decided to have two concerts in a day, one in the morning and another in the evening. We will keep transporting light and transforming lives through religious entertainment, because everyday is a plus for the children of God,” he assured.
Meanwhile, Nigerian-based fans of Kenoly are already planning big for his arrival, which they are eagerly looking forward to with excitement. “It’s definitely going to be a day of authentic high praise, prayer and prophecy and I dare not miss it,” chorused a fan.
