Nigeria: Concert Organised for Orphans in Abuja

Children from various orphanages in Abuja were at the weekend thrilled by a group of artistes in a party/ children concert organised by 'Sign-up Missions'.

President of the missions, Arome Adaji, said he has been in the business of taking care and showing love to the less privilege.

"The aim of this show is just to make them feel loved," he stated.

Words of encouragement were said by various speakers to the children, while artistes sang gospel songs to lift up their spirits.

An artiste, Maxwell Okereke, alias Tmax, said God is always particular about the motherless children and the event is a wonderful opportunity to put smiles as well as show love to motherless children.

A comedian, Celestine Ogar, aka Big Daddy, said everybody should do what Jesus Christ instructed them to do, which is to show love and there wouldn't be any problem.

He said there is the need for the less privileged to be cared for and celebrated, adding that most people do not care much about them.

Highlights of the event were various performances and dancing steps by Solomon Lange, Tmax, Steve Willis, Johnsong, Big Daddy (comedian) and King James, amongst others.
