Destiny child gospel music talent hunt was conceived to create a platform for Nigerian gospel music singers to showcase their talents and also opportunity to compete satisfactorily and be above board their contemporaries in the secular act.
This is the first of its kind, and also a relief to the relegation gospel musicians are regularly subjected to in the entertainment sector, based on the mindset that gospel music is confined to the four walls of the church.
For your information, 98% of secular musicians are Christians who got career boost while singing in church choir groups, and based on their individual vocational assessment, they were certified as great talented musicians, but absence of potential sponsorship within Nigerian Christian community literally deprived them opportunities in gospel music and hence, they subscribed to secular music which attracts sponsorship based on its societal acceptance and moral decadence in the Nigerian community and entertainment sector.
Truly, with a bleeding heart, I appeal to Christian leaders to step up on the holy message to curb the religious and moral decadence rocking our country and to encourage the opportuned, and successful Christian brothers and sisters to invest in Christian projects that disseminates the WORD of God globally.
Christianity has been under attack lately, but can we ask ourselves (where is our power of anointing, power of descending on spiritual and physical elements gone?) I tell you brethren, religious decadence is responsible for all attack on Christians nationwide or should I say Christians have lost focus on their various biblical religious and spiritual obligations?
All these are the reasons Destiny Child is conceived and by his grace, by the end of season 1, an increase in prayer group participation, redefinition of Christian moral values and true religious obligation redemption, spiritual upliftment in various sectors of our Christian lives, based on ministration will be experienced during this gospel music talent hunt.
This is a mandate from God to destiny child to amplify religious consciousness by developing, reorganizing and improving on the quality of gospel music and musicians in Nigeria.
