The concert was conducted by the Choir master Kelechi Agu, the Music Director of the Church. The event started with a red carpet by 3pm on the day as the concert proper started immediately after.
Most of the attendees and performers were resplendent in an all white attire as performer after performer gave a near perfect rendition of the relevant songs with the crowd of people in the Church fully enjoying themselves. The chairman of the occassion was Dr Toyin Okeowo with Chief and Mrs Ayo Jagun as the parents of the day. The event was also an opportunity to launch the newly built organ which cost the Church a tidy sum of #8.5 million with Chief Ajagun solely providing #5 million of the amount as he had earlier promised.

The event also witnessed the awarding of certain members of the Choir including the choir master, Kelechi Agu who was also presented with a self portrait by his loving wife and siblings for his dedication to the affairs of the Choir in particular and the Church in general. Mr. Agu who was taken by surprise became emotional and almost to the point of tears. He thanked everyone who had made the occassion the success that it turned out to be.
