Nollywood stars, including Leo Mezie, Ijeoma Imoh and comedian, Elder O were in high spirits recently when the stormed Satelite Town, Lagos, for the annual Word and Spirit Assembly church's cultural day.

The event, which held penultimate Sunday inside the church auditorium featured fashion show, cultural dances and staged play. It was part of activities that marked the end of the church’s family month tagged “Traditional Sunday.”

Founder and Senior pastor of the church, Dr. Chris Ekeh, explained that the essence of the celebration was to reunite the congregation with their roots. Dressed in a flowing white agbada with a black cap to match, Dr Ekeh posited that celebrating our cultural heritage in the church is not as demonic as many have perceived it to be. 

The colourful event saw the church celebrating the different cultures and ethnic languages in Nigeria as never before. The members dressed in their different traditional outfits, depicting their roots and worshipping God in different ethnic languages and tongues. 

It was indeed a moment of happy reunion with the people’s culture in the house of God. The celebrities had a swell time, as they participated actively during the fashion show. Comedian Elder O was also at his very best, reeling out ribs cracking jokes that left the congregation yarning for more. 

But beyond the razzmatazz, the highpoint of the day was a traditional fashion parade, which saw the winners walking away with various prizes and gifts ranging from generators sets to TV sets, gas cookers, fans and other innumerable home appliances. It was quite an experience of a lifetime. 

According to pastor Ekeh, “The joy that filled our hearts in today's service was immeasurable as we celebrated our Traditional Sunday, #Praising, #Worshiping and offering sacrifices of #Prayers unto our God and King. It was a beautiful experience for us all as we appeared in our Local/Traditional attires to appreciate God for the heritage of the Nigerian/African culture.”
