The Garden City, Kumasi came to a standstill on Easter Sunday, when the MTN Stands In Worship, took center stage for the first time in the region.

The excited kids,the dapper youth, the elegant oldies and radiant royal folks adorned in rich kente fabrics were ready to be emersed into powerful ministrations.

Starting with the Kumasi Evengel Choir, patrons were treated to over half an hour renditions of local chorals including “Just by the Power of God”, “God You’re Good” by Francis Adyei, “Yedi Nkunim” and “Watua M’aka’ by Tagoe Sisters among others.

Apostle Dr Nana Sarpong then delivered his Words of Exhortation titled ‘Consider’ and urged Christians to take advantage of such programmes to praise God for his mercy and sacrifices.

He said, it was important to celebrate the victory of Christ in a very decent and Godly manner while urging the youth to desist from violence during the upcoming December general elections.

His message paved way for the classic man in the Ghanaian gospel music industry, ACP Kofi Sarpong who set the roof on fire with his outstanding energy and stage craft.
