Dozens of single females in wedding gowns graced the Hallelujah Challenge event, which was spearheaded by Gospel minister, Pastor Nathaniel Bassey, on Sunday night, October 22, 2023, at the Eko Hotel and Suites.
So much so that one would have assumed a mass wedding was taking place, but it was simply folks dressed as their testimony.
They made an appearance at the gospel music event after Pastor Nathaniel Bassey declared it a “dress like your miracle” night.
It wasn’t just single ladies that dressed up, students also showed up in Graduation gowns while Trying to conceive (TTC) women showed up with artificial baby bumps or baby dolls as a sign of their faith for God’s visitation at the Halleluyah festival which started around 6pm and ended at midnight.
This year’s 20-day hallelujah festival began at midnight on October 3, 2023, and has already drawn distinguished guests such as Pastor Jerry Eze, Pastor Joshua Selman, Minister Dunsin Oyekan, Minister Victoria Orenze, Minister Lilian Nneji, and others.
Hundreds of thousands of people watched the live stream on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram.
Day 17 of this year’s challenge, in fact, had over 500,000 views on YouTube and over a hundred thousand participants on Instagram and Facebook.
In rounding up the 20-day challenge, the Gospel minister, Nathaniel Bassey while taking its theme from the biblical Acts 16:25-26, held the festival concert on Sunday night at the Eko hotel and suites saying “We will pray, we will sing, we will dance. Foundations will be shaken, prison doors open and all bands shall be loosened in Jesus’ name. Get ready! Come Expectant to have an encounter with God.”
