The Experience 2018 (#TE13), a musical concert held annually in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city, has commenced.
The Senior Pastor of House on the Rock, Paul Adefarasin had said the theme of the event is “Jesus, Our Peace” with 500,000 in attendance and millions said to be watching online. The event took place at the Tafawa Balewa Square.
“Peace (as I know it) is not the absence of tension but the presence of Justice,” the clergyman had said.
Just like previous editions, the Experience 2018 will feature top gospel singers from Nigeria and across the globe including Don Moen, Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, Timi Dakolo, Chioma Jesus, Tope Alabi, Tim Godfrey amongst others.
We wish perfect experience at The Experience 2018.
