Midnight Crew Celebrates 17th Year Anniversary With Double Release – “Good God” & ‘Congratulations’

Nigeria’s Iconic Gospel music group Midnight Crew is pumped up and loaded as the quartet celebrate their 17th anniversary with two brand new singles! “Good God” and “Congratulations.”

It’s been 17 years of immense positive contribution to the ever challenging terrain of the Gospel music Industry. Through it all, God has been faithful, showcasing His pre-eminence through the creative arts and ministry of the Midnight Crew. The quartet has been responsible to their call by maintaining high level of integrity to their flock, even while expanding their frontiers and breaking new grounds.

“It’s an amazing feeling to have contributed fairly well to an industry with challenges within and without. To have proven that groups consist of individuals who can stand on their own and still keep the integrity of the group. To have enjoyed so much of God on just one song. The Midnight Crew story makes sense,” the statement by the group reads.

The new singles are expressive of the spirit and mood of the quartet as they celebrate their 17th anniversary, while they call on the rest of the Gospel community to join in the celebration.

Good God

“Good God” takes the conventional thanksgiving-worship-praise song route. Performed by the Midnight Crew trademark voice of Pat Uwaje-King and Odunayo Ojo-Onasanya, the ladies bring Makossa to life. The vibrant, rhythmic and contagious melody of “Good God” takes one through a praise experience that will linger in the spirit.

Congratulations by Midnight Crew with social media

Congratulations
The Urban Afro-style of “Congratulations” by Midnight Crew motivates festivity, although Midnight Crew channels the dance and eulogies to Jehovah, the source of His children’s testimonies.

The song is somewhat prophetic as the Crew see every listener in the spotlight of celebration and believe all glory and praise will go to God. “Congratulations” is performed by the men of Midnight Crew, Olugbenga Oyebola and Mike Abdul. It is an invitation to the Midnight Crew’s festive demeanor.

[DOWNLOAD] Thank You Lord – Pat Uwaje-King 

Following the 15th anniversary of Midnight Crew and the release of “Shout Halleluyah” closely, iconic Gospel minstrel Pat Uwaje-King’s demeanor still expresses gratitude as she releases the single “Thank You Lord”.

Being in a music group for 15 years and recording a good number of notable achievements is not a walk in the park, hence, a reason to be grateful. More importantly, the Gospel music minister is grateful for every hurdle she has surmounted through the grace of God upon her life. She testifies of the redemptive power of God time and time again in the face of some of the most challenging situations she has had to face through the years.  Indeed, if you can think deep, you can thank just as deep!

Produced by Olaitan Dada for Natialo Productions, the single is an Afrocentric praise song. The local percussion stirs up the mid-tempo vibe enough to spur a dance in praise of the Most High.

“Thank You Lord” is the first single off Pat Uwaje-King’s forthcoming sophomore album and can be downloaded from her brand new website which is being launched alongside this song.

Midnight Crew Marks 15 Years Anniversary with a Shout of Halleluyah!

Africa’s leading Gospel music quartet, Midnight Crew, celebrates their 15th year anniversary, with the release of their latest single Shout Halleluyah for free download. The release portrays the group’s gratitude to God and all the people who have been a part of their journey over the years.

From their humble beginnings, breaking into a highly competitive Industry and enjoying mainstream success, Midnight Crew is cognisant of the ‘God-factor’ that has kept them relevant and in much demand for the past 15 years.

The group has enjoyed collective and individual success, scooping awards, honours and recognition on her apex-bound path. In 2013 during their 12th anniversary, Midnight Crew announced that individual members will embark on solo projects while also fully engaged in and with the corporate entity. In 2015, the group joined the team of headliners for the 10th edition of the annual concert, The Experience, making that their 5th appearance at what is known as the world’s largest gospel concert. Despite the overwhelming rumours of breakup, Midnight Crew has become the epitome of a successful music group – a reference point for the Industry.

“We are a testimony of God’s masterplan” says Pat Uwaje-King as she spoke on behalf of the group. “We started without knowing where all the paths will lead. We didn’t have any backup plan. There were no connections or financiers, but looking at all the feat we have surmounted, we can only give God the glory. We also sincerely thank all our supporters, family members and well-wishers for their immense support and encouragement through the years”.

Shout Halleluyah is an apt response in gratitude to God for the milestone the group is celebrating. Midnight Crew enjoins friends and well-wishers to partake in the celebration”

Join Midnight Crew at the 11th edition of The Experience (2016), as they again, along side other gospel music greats, add their own flavour to the praise of the One who is Alpha, Omega, The Author and Finisher of our faith!

We almost broke up in 2005 – Midnight Crew


This year marks the 15th year that ace gospel group, Midnight Crew, was formed. In a celebratory mood, the group takes a trip down memory lane and remembers how they almost broke up about four years after it was formed unknown to them that God had a lot in stock for them.

The spokesperson for the group, Mike Abdul, shared the story of how the group was almost disbanded.

He said, “Sometime in 2005, we felt that we had spent four years together and things were looking tight and difficult for us. We decided that we should do something about it by letting everybody go. We called a meeting which was meant to disband the group but as God would have it, we found ourselves praying and after the prayer session, we did not discuss about disbanding the group but making it better. God helped us. Imagine if we had disbanded Midnight Crew in 2005, we did not know that we were going to receive a song that would make the whole nation proud in 2008. Igwe was released seven years after we formed Midnight Crew.”

He gave reasons why most music groups break up in Nigeria and also shared some secrets behind the togetherness of the group.

“I think it is not just in Nigeria that groups break up, it also happens in the US. I think what has worked for us is that we respect individuality. After ten years as a group we had a meeting and we told ourselves that we can all do individual works and still be in the group. I think the problem that has occurred over the years that has not been addressed when it comes to groups is that we fail to understand that every member of the group is an individual who carries a dream of his own. I think groups should accept and allow individual platforms to thrive. I think that would work because it has worked for us. I think it has been God because it is not easy to keep people together; even brothers fight and make up. In fact, I know of some brothers who did not talk to each other till one of them died over a little misunderstanding. We have heard of divorce cases between a man and a woman after about five children but all of a sudden, they say they cannot stay together again. It is not easy keeping together but it has to do with putting a system in place that would understand the individuality of every member,” he said.
