Renowned Ghanaian Pentecostal worship leader, Elder Mireku, known for his many popular spirit-filled worship songs, crowned performances at the MTN Ghana Stands In Worship concert at the Accra Sports Stadium last Saturday.
Thousands of believers waited with baited breath till the end of the concert, just to have a spiritual encounter with him.
The religious worship singer took the stage in an electrifying mood, with most of the audience standing on their feet. Some patrons fell on their knees and lied prostrate on the ground in total submission, while others thronged towards the stage.
The atmosphere was spiritually charged like a crusade rather than a mere entertainment experience when the worshipper sung many of his hit songs: Wose Ayeyi, Yesu N’adom, Odimafo, Waka Neaye Akyere among others in praise and worship.
President of the Musicians Unoin of Ghana (MUSIGA) Obour fell when Elder Mireku touched him. He managed to get up after about two minutes.
The event also witnessed performances by American gospel icon Micah Stampley and Nathaniel Bassey from Nigeria. The programme touted as the biggest outdoor gospel event in Ghana, this year started with a beautiful choreography and impressive performances by choirs from Royalhouse Chapel International, Lighthouse Chapel, Charismatic Evangelistic Ministries, Harvest Chapel International and the MTN Viva Voices.
Imajin Advertising, organizers of the event say, a lot of preparation and planning was done to ensure patrons had a memorable spiritual experience, which was also meant to climax the 20th anniversary of MTN, which is the title sponsor of the event.
