Theatrical presentations dot new glory musical concert
The 2016 Choir Day of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church (Ayo Ni O) held at the Youth Church Auditorium, a fortnight ago, was spirit lifting and entertaining.
Meant to celebrate the Church Choir’s Day, the event whose theme was, ‘New Glory’ has become a yearly concert that members and non-members of the church look forward to.
The concert generously thrilled guests with doses of religious music, plays and dance, which are consonant with the theme. It also saw different groups come to showcase their talents.
From hip-hop to Afrobeat, classical and highlife music, there was a song to keep the different generation present in the audience excited. Mostly, the presentations were usually a mix of Yoruba and English languages songs, thereby carrying everyone along.
One other unique feature of the presentations was the choreography that gave non-verbal interpretation to the songs. The costumes used in the different presentations either by the lead artistic, the backup singers and the dancers did not only align with the message of the presentation, but also further enhance performances.
The opening song was His Glory, followed by Mo Sope, Moti Loluwa, Eni Nla Ni Oluwa, Bolojo and others. In one of the performances, Everybody Come And See, an Afrobeat presentation, the lead vocalist mimicked Fela with his dress sense, dance steps and voice. The performance added colours to the event.
There was a drama presentation with the title, King Of Glory. The play tells the faith that awaits a repentant soul.
The choirmaster general, Prophet Niyi Adeyemi in his opening remarks called on the people to be steadfast in the Lord, to experience His Glory.
On what informed the theme of this year’s celebration, Afeyemi, said, “we can see what is happening in the world and we know unless we have the glory of God every other glory is nothing, because anything from the devil does not last long. It is only the God’s glory that can sustain anyone; so we are enjoining the people to seek it.”
Aside upcoming artistes, Lady Evangelist Nike Elegbede, Ayo Balogun and Lanre Teriba were in attendance to make the event grand.
