Also, he insisted that young adult church members and his student pastors take up musical instruments and play music. It was believed that they played instruments without any training and relied only on God’s gift.
There was a man known by the name of Rev. David Mporampora and a lady, Minister Dorothy James. Together they transmuted gospel music in Western Africa, and Nigeria particularly. Undoubtedly, they laid the foundation of the sound we hear these days.
