Popular Nigerian Inspirational and Gospel Artiste, Nathaniel Bassey recently started a trend changing worship and communication in a way the Nigerian Christian community never foresaw. Mr Bassey, who is known for his soothing voice and his skillful mix of jazz and classical soul in his art, blew a trumpet on social media last month announcing a new trend – A thirty days, one hour #TonguesChallenge which rolled every day at midnight. The call invited and called on Christians all over the world, beginning from his local region, Nigeria to Join a Live Instagram prayer session. Subscribers who joined sent their prayers via Instagram Live comments, prayer together as one and praying for one another via the comment feature. Each prayer session gathered up testimonies of new miracles; day by the day the numbers grew and by the 30th day, a massive cult following had engulfed the 30 days #TonguesChallenge. Totally unorthodox and untraditional, this bold move got more acceptance than expected.

Ending the 30 Days online prayer meet up, the inspirational singer/songwriter announced a new theme for the month of June tagged #HallelujahChallenge – a 30 Days, one hour Live Worship session happening everyday by midnight through Instagram live streaming.

With the Nigerian Christian community being the largest in Africa, and Nigerians being actively religious, the little trumpet blown by the artiste gathered over 25,000 live subscribers yesterday, 10th June, 2017. Christians from all around the world, irrespective of denomination, doctrine or location united in songs, worship and active praises, sending in praises and prayers as comments on the Live Streaming wall. Mr Bassey, Popular for many hit singles in the church circles has turned to technology to influence Church Culture more than ever. Clearly, online comments and responses, confirm that this digitally enabled revival is receiving an acceptance like non other.

From his last single “Onisye Iyanu”, to the #TonguesChallange to this #HallelujahChallenge, Mr Bassey is single handedly uniting the Nigerian Church in a rather unique but extraordinary manner.
