5 Songs That Rocked The Nigerian Gospel Music Scene in 2016

So, in the mood of review for the end of the year, we’d be going through some of the songs that rocked the gospel music scene in Nigeria. Agree with me or not, these songs definitely made their way into the playlist of every Christian event in 2016. Some were released in 2016 and others were not but they are definitely the church hits of the year.

One thing is common among the songs; they all speak of the mighty wonders that can be done through the power of God. It would be more than safe to conclude that we really love God and the works of His hand in Nigeria.

You can also make these songs into a playlist and groove them during this yuletide period.
