The South African Idol Khaya Mthethwa will be performing in Nigeria with the big names such as Israel Houghton, Fred Hammond, Deitrick Haddon, Chevelle Franklyn, Doen Moen, Micah Stampley, Mike Aremu, Sammie Okposo, Wale Adenuga and Soweto Spiritual Singers.
Convened and hosted by Pastor Paul Adefarasin, The Experience is an Interdenominational Gospel concert that features some of the best-known musical talents of our time. The Event, which debuted in December 2006 with over 70,000 persons in attendance rapidly gained momentum at its second outing with a quantum leap in attendance of well over 250,000 people. The Experience has now become known as the largest musical concert in Africa.
In previous editions the Experience has run through the night starting at 7.00pm and running till 6am the following morning; a colossal 11 hours of uninterrupted prayer and live music!
At its inception, the Experience was simply an opportunity for Nigerians to put aside tribe, tongue, class, and creed; come together and lift one voice and worship God. The event is seen as a bridge of reconciliation, and a beacon of light and hope to the much afflicted and often maligned continent of Africa. Attended by Federal and State dignitaries, Captains of Industry and your regular man or woman next door, The Experience was truly representative of a cross section of Nigeriaâ€™s eclectic community.
This yearâ€™s concert is scheduled to hold at Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS), Onikan from Friday, the 7th of December 2012 through to Saturday 8th of December.
500,000 voices lifted in praise, hearts united in worship, live music like you never heard before. Beyond words can adequately articulate; it is a night to remember… the Experience. Get ready for the glory! There are only 17 days before this glorious annual event.
