It is that time of the year, when twins from all over the country come together in one voice to intercede for Nigeria in songs. The programme “Praise God with the Twins” was first held about three years ago when the duo of Taiwo and Kenny Jones Olayiwola, gathered twins from all parts of Nigeria together to seek an alternative way apart from praying to intercede for Nigeria.
The one-day music programme is such that eighty percent of those who will be singing are either one half of a twin or the duo singing together. The previous editions has been graced by established Nigerian gospel musicians like Evangelist Ebenezer Obey-Fabiyi, Lady Evangelist Bola Are, Pastor Joseph Adelakun (Ayewa) and many more. In same vein, other Nigerians of repute who promised to grace the event include Pastor JT Kalejaiye, Pastor Wale Adefarasin, Bishop Olaleye, among others.
According to the conveners, this year’s edition is tagged “God Heal our Land”. “Nigeria has been discovered to be the most praying nation in the world and it is a fact that we have nothing to show for it. Our belief is that when you keep doing something in a particular way and the result is not coming, there is need to diversify.”
“One day we were inspired to try intercession through song and the answer we sought just came like that. This got us thinking there should be something we can do to change the orientation of Nigerians on making positive impact. We were led to use ourselves as twins and others like us in interceding through praise for our beloved country. It is our belief that where prayers tarry, praise intercede and that was how we came up with asking every Nigerian to “Praise God with the Twins” they concluded.
