Easter is here already, plans are being made to mark the season as it approaches. One of such plans is the oncoming Easter bumper fest put together by Medialion Marketing limited in conjunction with LynMedia to thrill the residents of Uyo and its environs. Aptly tagged “SOUNDS OF EASTER”, the event parades the very best of gospel music artistes and entertainers from this side of the divide. Its features include music, comedy, theatre performance and an exclusive fashion parade by the very best designers in the South South. It has been scheduled to hold on the 31st of March 2013 at the Ibom Hall grounds (IBB Way) and is already garnering much verve with the recent kickoff of its publicity campaign. The event is indeed a spice to the season as it will not only celebrate the resurrection of Christ but do so in a very grand style. Red carpet starts by 3pm and from then till it rounds up, its going to be a bumper package with various gospel artistes mounting the stage at intervals to thrill the crowd. According to the event’s media coordinator, Meflyn Mbom, ” …God deserves all the praise for restoring humanity for the purpose of divinity and eternity. We came together to put up this massive gospel concert because we want to glorify Him for this grace upon mankind. We are thankful to God that we have people who still believe in the projection of the kingdom…The event happens to hold on the week of the Akwa Ibom Trade Fair and Exhibition (IBOMTEX 2013) and features seasoned gospellers who have made impact across the nation and in the international scene…Come share in the joy of Easter…Come feel the synergy of sounds that made us who we are in God.”.
