Damilola Adegbite Shares Her Biggest Testimony Of 2018 (Photo)

Nollywood actress, Damilola Adegbite has just shared her biggest testimony of 2018 and how God gave her a massive army to fight her battle.

According to her, 'I was fighting a serious battle for over a year. A battle I knew I could never ever have won by power nor by might. So instead, I decided to pray HARD about it. Oh dear, I disturbed God on this matter. I would sing, dance, cry, praise, worship; day and night'.

A whole year passed and nothing happened. But I refused to give up. On the 17th of May (a day before my birthday), I went to a mid-week service. I dragged myself to the church that day. I was overwhelmed. I had no strength left in me. My head kept telling me to give up, but my heart and spirit said NO.

Members Kneel Down To Welcome Their Pastor - Photos Go Viral (Video)

Photos of church members kneeling down to welcome their pastor have gone viral. The pastor arrived in a car with his driver. His driver came out, knelt down and opened the door for him. The pastor came out of the car, walked majestically and entered the church while his congregation knelt down even along the road and hailed him.

A Yoruba adage says, may God not allow the foolish turn out wise so that the wise will always have someone to cheat. I believe that is some pastors prayer as well

What an irony of life, they won't dare call fellow humans (Pastors) by their first name, never....but when it comes to Jesus who ironically is the reason for the Pastors, it's easier for to call him first name anyhow with command and zero respect.

Fela, Prince of Two Cities, At 80 By Benson Idonije

Image result for Benson Idonije

If the legendary Fela Anikulapo Kuti were still alive, he would be 80 years tomorrow. Age would have mellowed him down alright, but his music would continue to evolve mellifluously, reaching out to new levels of creativity, along with the path of Classical African Music which he began in 1986 with the landmark album, Beasts of no nation.
If Fela was still living, he would be ‘looking’ and ‘laughing’ derisively now in utter vindication, at the current state of the Nigerian nation where almost all the predictions he made and the accusations he levelled against successive governments in terms of corruption and bad governance are visibly manifesting themselves. After all, he fought hard to stem this ugly tide – from the 70s to the 90s, using his music as a weapon.
I was watching some of his recorded live performances on the night of August 2, 2018 courtesy of Hip Television, an entertainment channel which has become reputed for direct identification with its target audience in terms of local content: apparently, this special programme was intended to remember the day Fela died in 1997.
