Egbeda communities revel in the excitement of Loud Mega Street Praise 2.0 (Video)

It was indeed a celebration of the good life as people defied the hot sun of the afternoon of last week Saturday to attend the much anticipated ‘Loud Mega Street Praise’ to celebrate the birthday Pastor Mayor Sylv-Kadiri, who clocked 50 on Monday.
The Mega Street Concert, tagged “50 Alleluyah,” was held in the Egbeda area of Lagos with much celebration, excitement, and fanfare on Saturday, March 23, 2024.
While speaking about the concert, the celebrant, Pastor Sylv-Kadiri, said, “I’m celebrating God’s goodness in my life because God has been there for me through thick and thin.
“We are doing this on the street because I never knew what my life would have been today if God had not kept it. It was tough growing up and coming out of a polygamous family. I could have been an armed robber or an “area boy,” but God spared my life and picked me up from the street. Therefore, I have decided to give God praise on the street each year to say thank you, to give back to the community, and to also help people on the street see the light of the gospel and return to God, their creator, through this little effort of mine. This idea was conceived last year, and this is the second edition.
“I believe the same God, who brought me out of the street and kept me for five decades, is still on the throne and can attend to anyone, irrespective of what they are going through or the challenges of life that might have hurt them.”
The Loud Mega Street Praise 2.0 took place on Jezza Street in Egbeda, and, according to the convener, the next edition will move to another street to reach out to more people in different locations of Lagos.
“This year’s event is the second edition, and most people heard about the first edition and the testimonies that followed. That’s why you see a great number of people coming out to praise the Almighty God today.
“These people who came out to dance and offer praise to God today are faced with one challenge or another; even in their challenges, they are all out, and you think God will not arise from his throne to meet them at the point of their needs?
”No, God is not a wicked God; when people praise him, in return, he heals their land and gives them immeasurable testimonies.
“Through this praise encounter, we trust God to bring Nigeria out of her many challenges. We are dancing, praising God, and we are hopeful that God, who saved the Israelites when they were suffering in those days, will do the same in Nigeria,” he added.
The Loud Mega Street Praise Concert was not just about dance and the offering of praises to God; participants also went home with prizes and numerous gift items.
Several popular gospel artists were on the band stage to minister soul lifting songs to encourage the participants. Among these ministers are, Pastor J.A. Adelakun (Baba Ayewa), Buchi, Shade Oshoba, Bidemi Olaoba, Michael Akingbala, Shade Odetunde, Funmi Sax, Godswin, Ibidun Akinpelu, Imole Ayo, Omo-Akin Jesu, Shijuade, Beloved Eunice, and other gospel minstrels.
Pastor Mayor Sylv-Kadiri said, “We like to showcase our God; we are proud of the Lord that we serve. Some people worship other gods in secret, but we serve a living God. He is not dead; death could not stop him from resurrecting, and he is alive forever. Our joy today is that he can see, he can speak, he can hear, and he can answer all our prayers,” he said.
Pastor Sylv-Kadiri then expressed optimism that the event would be an annual concert.
