VIDEO: Gabriel Eziashi – Yahweh + Lifted

Gabriel Eziashi – Yahweh + Lifted

Prolific and revered Gospel singer, songwriter and musician Gabriel Eziashi returns in 2018 with two excellent new music videos, for his latest singles ‘Lifted’ and ‘Yahweh’, produced by Mr Shabz (Sammi Okposo, Nikki Laoye, Sonnie Badu), and taken from his forthcoming fifth studio album titled Lifted, which is set to be released later this year, on September 23.

Directed by Joel ‘Kachi Benson, who has previously worked with the likes of Cobhams Asuquo, as well as some of the biggest brands across Africa, among others, the videos for ‘Lifted’ and ‘Yahweh’ were shot on location in Dallas, Texas, and capture two polar opposite visual themes, to give audiences a varied viewing experience, while listening to both singles.

The video for ‘Lifted’ is a gloriously scenic affair, which sees Gabriel Eziashi tapping into the natural outdoors of Prayer Mountain in Texas, to give praise to God for lifting us up above our circumstances, while the ‘Yahweh’ video is a more stripped back studio visual cut, which relies on Gabriel’s performance prowess, and charming personality, to bring the God-revering record further to life.

A veteran of over two decades, Gabriel Eziashi has worked with the likes of Helen Baylor, Donnie McClurkin, Chevelle Franklin, Muyiwa (Riversongz), MOBO Award winner Yolanda Brown, Tye Tribet, Tasha Cobbs, Nathaniel Bassey, and Mike Aremu, among others. Eziashi also serves as worship leader at the Festival Of Life, where he ministers to over 60,000 Christian revellers every year.

Speaking about the inspiration for ‘Lifted’ and ‘Yahweh’, Gabriel Eziashi says, “These songs come from a personal walk with God. During trials, what we see most as human are the issues at hand, but God on the other hand, sees opportunities and breakthrough. No matter what is happens in life, please understand that there is God, who understands everything – so rest on HIM at all times”.

Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi unveils Love of Christ ''The comforter 2018''. Tasks leaders on unity

The Founder of Esther Ajayi Foundation as well as General Overseer, Love of Christ (LOC) Generation Church, United Kingdom, Reverend Mother Esther Abimbola Ajayi, has declared that the church is set to host this year's edition of its yearly convention tagged "Celebrate The Comforter 2018.

The Reverend Mother, who is known for her unflinching act of giving, made this declaration while addressing a house full of journalists at the Presidential Suite of the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

She noted that the annual fiesta is principally tailored towards evangelism, freeing people from the shackles of poverty, winning more souls for Christ and celebrating the wonders of God, adding that of more importance is the fundamental objective of the meet, which is to bring Celestial and Cherubim and Seraphim churches together in a bid to change misconceptions about 'white garment churches' and their modus operandi.

"The fundamental objective of the Comforter 2018 is to bring the Celestial and Cherubim and Seraphim churches together, and to tell the world that we believe solemnly in the Word of God, and have a unity of purpose," she said.

She happily announced that this year's event will be held at the United Palace, Broadway, New York, United States of America on Saturday, July 28, 2018 with herself and other anointed preachers on hand to 'breathe anointing fragrance into the lives of the people'.

Still on the theme of unity, she called on religious and traditional rulers to preach peace at all times, and shun statements or actions that have the tendency to cause division and disaffection amongst Nigerians.

She also used the opportunity to urge religious leaders to preach more about moral and values, and less about prosperity, noting that with the right values, the youths, who are the future will grow up to cherish excellence over mediocrity.

Furthermore, she urged Nigerian youths to shun illegal migration, noting that there were so many opportunities in Nigeria that could be positively harnessed.

It is for this reason that the General Overseer pledged to use the opportunity of the gathering in New York to celebrate youths that have excelled in their academic pursuit while urging religious leaders to do same in their various churches as a means of encouraging the youths .

Reminiscing on the previous edition of 2017 tagged 'Celebrating the Comforter' with the theme 'Unity in the Holy Spirit' held at the Excel, London, which recorded 'huge success', Rev. Mother noted that the 2018 edition will sure surpass it in both content and achievement as 'God is set to give His people double portion of anointing that will release them from the bondage of captivity and the kingdom of darkness'.

Reverend Mother Ajayi, who was flanked at the briefing by her loving husband, Dr. Ademuyiwa Ajayi, and her daughter, who doubles as her Personal Assistant, Ola Ajayi, also used the opportunity to reach out to both political, religious and traditional leaders in the country to cultivate the spirit of tolerance, and abhor those things that tend to 'cause disharmony, division and disaffection'.

Earlier, she noted that the Esther Ajayi Foundation, has made amazing impact since inception, even as the seven persons empowered during the Ovation Carol of December 2017 are doing very well, and even empowering others. However, she modestly stressed that:

"Our joy is not only about the amazing impact... but seeing it become so successful that those we have empowered have themselves started touching other lives positively."

She reiterated the desire of the Foundation in considering the Libya returnees, first, as a multi-purpose facility being constructed in Odogbolu, Ogun State for teaching of vocational, courses is almost ready. She praised the likes of Ovation CEO, Bashorun Dele Momodu and Founder, Focus on Disability Foundation, Mr. Abiodun Paseda, for their support of her philanthropic efforts.

In continuation of her trips towards affecting lives, Reverend Mother Ajayi, who declared that of the proposed one million lives to be touched this year, over 600, 000 has been affected so far even as the year is still young, will soon be in Turkey to visit Refugee camps and get a first-hand knowledge of their experience with a view to lend a helping hand
