Nigerian professional singer David Adeleke, better known as Davido, has been listed amongst those to perform at a thanksgiving service organised by a church known as Inri Evangelical Spiritual Church.
The Lagos-based church broke the news in series of posts on its Facebook page on Monday ahead of the event billed for February 14 — which is Valentine’s Day.
“It’s going to be an auspicious event. A day of Thanksgiving, a day where a lot is going to happen, a day to appreciate and support people, a day to give God all the Glory and adoration,” one of the posts read.
“Join us this Sunday as we celebrate with dignitaries to make the world a peaceful place for you and I.”
In a different post, accompanied by the event’s flyer, the church said the programme tagged ‘Living in a Peaceful World’ would help promote peaceful co-existence.
It added that the event would also appreciate those who have supported the growth of the ministry.
