Rededicating Emohua Community to God, a seasoned minister of the Gospel, Rt Rev. Bright Ejikeme, Bishop of First African Church, Mgbuitanwo, Emohua noted that the annual Emohua Day with God” religious event was a period of stock taking and renewal of the divine covenant between the community and God entered into 22 years ago.
The man of God took his sermon from Isaiah Chapter 51 verse 15 which states “I am the Lord thy God that divided the sea whose wave roared, the Lord of hosts is His name”.
The cleric urged the community and all Christians to embrace God, keep his commandments and abide by the divine covenant made with God. He also enjoined them to shun all forms of idolatory, criminality and moral decadence in order to enjoy the bountiful blessings of God this year, as he rededicated the community to God and blessed the land.

Published

Famous talking drummer and the cultural ambassador of the Ooni of Ife, Aralola Olamuyiwa, simply known as Ara, has recalled how people tried to discourage her from playing the talking drum.
Ara, who is Africa’s first female talking drummer, disclosed that she was told that playing the talking drum might prevent her from having children but she broke the jinx.
”There are some drums females cannot play. I started with the traditional drums. But I evolved over the years. I played different instruments like bass guitar, keyboard, and set drums.
“But I wanted something different, so I started learning how to play the talking drum. People I asked to teach me were skeptical about teaching me because I am a woman. So I am self-taught.
“Although at some point, I was afraid. I was like, ‘what could happen to me?’ They were like, ‘you might not be able to have kids.’ It’s a traditional thing but I broke that jinx,” she said.

Charly Boy slammed the change stressing that the national anthem was not a pressing problem for Nigerians.
“Misplaced Priorities, incompetence, greed and the almighty CORRUPTION can never be covered up by false propaganda. My people, What is our major challenge in this country, HUNGER or NATIONAL ANTHEM?”
Charly Boy’s followers took to the comment section, equally reacting to the recent change. A follower commented, “They don’t have bills in the house to sponsor. They can’t even recite the one we have today they want to go to learn the old one written by another man.” “The disconnect between the political rulers and the citizens is alarming,” said a concerned user. “WHICH WAY NIGERIA?” asked another person.
The Tide Entertainment reports that this comes after the Senate and the House of Representatives approved the legislation to change the national anthem from “Arise, O Compatriots” to “Nigeria, We Hail Thee.” Shortly after that, on May 29, 2024, President Tinubu signed the bill into law.
Lillian Jean Williams, a British expatriate who resided in Nigeria during its independence era, wrote the lyrics for “Nigeria, We Hail Thee,” while Frances Berda composed the music. However “Arise O Compatriots” was written by Pa Benedict Odiase, a Nigerian composer, and it was adopted from 1978 until 2024.
