“How near-death experience made me start feast of praise”

by Church Times

The convener of the annual feast of praise, Elder Gbenga Daodu has said a near-death experience he had some years ago made him start the annual praise programme in 2014

Daodu made this known in a statement announcing the 2024 edition of the event which will hold on April 26.

Talking about the near-death experience, he said he was involved in an accident with his family along the Lekki -Ajah express road several years back.

The accident was a terrible one according to him and would have claimed his life.  “The years following the accident were equally turbulent.  But God has remained faithful.

” I experienced so many turbulences after the accident, and it was then I heard a divine voice twice a year that I should start praising Him for what He has done for me. Today we have had several years of coming together to praise God.” Daodu said.

He recalled that his assembly pastor,  Henry Stephen was one of those who encouraged him after sharing the vision with him.

“He encouraged me and ensured some people join me in making the first edition of the programme a glorious one.

Prophet Kayode Abiara founder of Christ Apostolic Church, Agbala Itura, and a host of other men and women of God have been supportive of the event.

Prophet  Clement Oyewobi , Gospel singer, Tope Alabi, Segun Oluwayomi, and Mary Arowomole were some of the early ministers at the praise event.

Evangelist Bola Are, Opelope Anointing, Bisi Alawiye, Tope Alabi, Mike Abdul, Woli Arole, Woli Agba, Bukola Akinade Sewenle, Esther Igbekele, Elijah Akintunde aka Olorun O and a host of others have also ministered at the yearly event.

While noting that the programme has grown bigger and better, he said, “the vision of the Feast of Praise programme has been sustained by God. It has also been sustained by a covenant made with God to appreciate Him in praise and thanksgiving yearly.

“Several people who are also inspired by God have been co-opted along the line since it started in 2014.”

Daodu called on people who are so inspired and led “to contribute to the expansion of this great outreach ministry to populate the kingdom of God through praise as the Yoruba adage says ‘Ninu Iyin Ni Olorun Gbe:(God dwells in Praise)”
