Confusion Overtakes Child Abductors/Ritualist, Set to Strike in Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin’s Mercy City Church, Warri, Delta State, Nigeria (Watch Video).

Confusion Overtakes Child Abductors/Ritualist, Set to Strike in Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin’s Mercy City Church, Warri, Delta State, Nigeria (Watch Video).

Of a truth, God never sleeps or slumbers; His arm is not too short to rescue His beloved.

Of the millions of families that worshipped at Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry, a.k.a Mercy City, Warri, Delta state, Nigeria, on the 29th of November, 2020, none could have foreseen that God would avert a major disaster that would forever have tainted the joy and reputation of their beloved church.
What would have been a dark day in the history of the church was turned around for good.

It was discovered that these cohorts, originally four in number, had been armed with demonic charms, and sent on a specific mission to abduct children from the Mercy City premises, for rituals.

The four men, one of whom is still at large, were offered 200,000 naira each, to successfully carry out this demonic mission. They were well on their way to achieving their aim; armed with diabolical materials that would cause any child they engaged in conversation to promptly become obedient to them and do their bidding. It was upon entering the church premises that they realized that a greater power existed.

_ confesses that confusion struck the team upon their entrance into the church premises. He immediately decided that he wanted no hand in child abduction and the team started to get into a frenzy as they lost their sense of reasoning.

It was indeed a miracle that this group of bandits was discovered, considering the high level of activity that one would typically see in the Mercy City premises.

Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain.

Burna Boy bags second Grammy nomination

Should Burna Boy win, he will become Nigeria’s second Grammy winner after Sikiru Adepoju

ByJayne AugoyeNovember 24, 2020 2 min readADVERTISEMENT

Burnaboy’s latest album ‘Twice As Tall’ has gotten him a second shot at winning a Grammy.

The talented singer, on Monday, bagged a World Music Album nomination alongside Antibalas, Bebel Gilberto, Anoushka Shankar, and Tianariwen.

Antibalas is an American afrobeat band modelled after Fela Kuti’s Africa 70 band while Bebel Gilberto is a popular Brazilian-American singer.

Anoushka Shankar is a British Indian sitar player and composer while Tianariwen is a group of northern Malian singers.

In October, the Recording Academy announced the renaming of the ‘Best World Music Album’ to ‘Best Global Music Album.’

Burna Boy, 29, lost in his first attempt to win a Grammy award after being nominated in the best world music album category in January 2020. Beninese music legend, Angelique Kidjo, won the award.

‘Twice As Tall’ which is Burna Boy’s fifth album was released in August. Burna Boy, his mum cum manager, Bosede Ogulu, and Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, were the executive producers.

The album was produced by Telz, P2J, Timbaland, Leriq, Rexxie, Skread, Andre Harris, Jae5, Mike Dean, and many more.

It also featured guest appearances from Naughty by Nature, the Kenyan band Sauti Sol, Senegal’s musical titan, Youssou N’Dour, and Chris Martin of Coldplay.

Music: Reekado Banks – “U dey Mad” ft Attifaya

Listen to the Official Audio for You Dey Mad by Reekado Banks featuring AttiFaya from the EP Off The Record.

Banks Music boss, Reekado Banks releases a brand new single titled “YOU DEY MAD“. This after the recent online drama between himself and Starboy for wanting to release the song ‘Omo Olomo‘ featuring Wizkid during the #EndSars saga and the unrest in Nigeria.

As time hurtles down towards the release of Off The Record, Reekado’s first project since 2016’s Spotlight, the musician has been in a constant state of music drops to keep fans’ appetites up for the extended play. His latest drop, “You Dey Mad,” featuring Attifaya is many things at once: a warning, defiant messaging, and a warm singalong.

Reekado keeps doing what he has done for much of the last year, broadening the edges of his music-making and incorporating newer elements into the process. On “You Dey Mad,” he goes for waspish call-and-responses interjected with textured crooning that ever slightly advances this record.
Gently increasing the lilt of his voice as the song progressed, Reekado Banks turned a defiant message to something slicker and lustrous hinting at the transformative quality that stands him out as one of Nigerian pop’s best singers.

Eventually, “You Dey Mad” fades into muted garbles and woozy reverbs, but not before Reekado Banks has served a reminder of why Off The Record, due for release on November 27, will be on at all kinds of places upon its release.

Listen and Enjoy the new warning jam below
