Artistes with gifts for inmates
Fellowship of Gospel Music Ministers of Nigeria (FOGMMON) in Lagos took time out to share the love and joy of the season with the less privileged recently in a programme tagged ‘Love at Christmas’.
The artistes arrived Bethesda Home for the Blind, Surulere, Lagos, in a convoy with gifts and carols. Chairman of the body, Aity Dennis said she was glad they were able to spend such rewarding time with the home, as caring for the less privileged is one of the core tenets of Christian faith.
It was a lively and unforgettable music and inspiration session as the inmates of the home (who call themselves Bethesda Home for the Blessed) and the music artistes did a collabo on songs of praises to the Almighty. The visiting artistes were amazed at the joy the inmates exuded in spite of their challenging condition. One of the artistes, Juli Makpo enthused: “We are all still speechless and dumbfounded. We thought we wanted to put a smile on their faces, but they were the ones who ended up putting smiles and joy on our faces and hearts.”
The inmates, who enjoyed a wonderful dance session led by KSB, also appealed for support from the Lagos artistes to enable them further their education as well as the opportunity to feature in the concerts hosted by the artistes.
Spokesman for the artistes, Ahide Adum, assured that their request would definitely be considered.
