It’s, no doubt, going to be a hard choice to make as lovers of Africa’s most anticipated annual gospel concert –The Experience – and the flagship event of Redeemed Christian Church of God’s (RCCG) annual congress – Holy Ghost Night – would be compelled to attend one prgramme and forfeit the other come December 7.
It is the first time, since inception that the hosting dates of both programmes would clash, with the effect that a huge number of the programmes’ fans, are already losing sleep over which of the programme to forgo or to savour.
Sunday Telegraph investigation found out that even prominent ministers in both the RCCG and the House On The Rock are not left out of the pressure imposed by the hard choice.
“For instance, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is a prominent pastor in the RCCG family, who usually graced each edition of The Experience. He also features prominently in every Holy Ghost Congress. He will be forced to attend the Holy Ghost Night and forego participation in The Experience just as the Senior Pastor of House On The Rock, Paul Adefarasin, a regular guest minister at RCCG’s Holy Ghost Congresses, cannot abandon his flagship event for any reason,” Pastor Obi Nwekebenye said.
