Popular Juju maestro, King Sunny Ade has confirmed his readiness to celebrate God in the life of popular prophet, Primate Elijah Ayodele, the Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church.

The man of God will be celebrating his annual thanksgiving on February 14, 2022 at his Lagos church and King Sunny Ade has been billed to perform at the mind-blowing event.

It is no more news that the relationship that exists between King Sunny Ade and Primate Ayodele is beyond that of a musician and a prophet but companions who have a common interest to render service to humanity.

It would be recalled that many years ago, King Sunny Ade gave a prophetic word to Primate Ayodele during a service that his church will have a large congregation of about 30,000 worshippers. This statement was made in 2000 when Primate Ayodele’s congregation was just about 500 worshippers.

After two decades of this prophetic statement by King Sunny Ade, the prophecy is finally seeing the light of the day as Primate Ayodele will be unveiling a 30,000-capacity church building on February 14, 2022 as part of the programme line-up for his annual thanksgiving.

Also, February 14 will feature the mother of all empowerments as usual. In previous years, Primate Ayodele has given cars, tricycles, scholarships, cash gifts, and relief materials to his church members, the needy, without regard to their religion.
