PHOTOS From 'The Experience' In Lagos. by TheRealMrStan(m): 6:19pm On Dec 07, 2014
On Friday the 5th of December 2014 would not be forgotten in a hurry as the 9th edition of The Experience Lagos took place at the Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS). The event witnessed over 600,000 men, women and children who came en masse for what has come to be regarded the largest music concert in Africa and arguably the largest gospel music concert in the world!

Long before the event began, the publicity for the event had taken various forms of expression, little wonder the theme for the 2014 edition: 1 God 1 Voice was well circulated online and offline in the weeks leading up to the event.

Disclosing one of the reasons for the theme, the convener of The Experience Lagos and Founder of the House on The Rock church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin had stated that the land of Nigeria is crying for justice and peace coupled especially as the 2015 election is around the corner. He added that the event will serve as a time where people all over the globe will cry out one true God with one voice in petition.

The Lagos Metropolitan Gospel Community Choir opened the event alongside Sammie Okposo, and thereafter came ministrations from Freke Umoh, Onos Ariyo and Midnight Crew. There were also moments of prayers for Nigeria, the nation’s economy and other state matters led by several Christian leaders such as Pastor Taiwo Odukoya of the Fountain of Life Church, Rev Sam Adeyemi of the Daystar Christian Centre, Bishops Mike and Peace Okonkwo of the TREM church, amongst others intermittently.

One remarkable moment of the Experience 2014 was Nathaniel Bassey. Micah Stampley surprised the delighted audience when he joined the trumpet playing artiste on stage for a rendition of his popular song, Imela. Not long after, Grammy award winning singer, Donnie McClurkin joined the duo into what became an awesome trio as the Americans belted out Imela like it was sang in their native language.

Notable figures who attended the Experience 2014 included Jimi Agbaje, The First Lady of Lagos state, Dame Abimbola Fashola, fmr. Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode, Lady Maiden Ibru , various bank MDs and more.

Can't Imagine how much they will make. Church is a good business.
