Multiple award winning gospel artiste, Song writer, and Music Director, Tim Godfrey has announced that his 5th Studio Album titled Fearless WRSHP will be available in stores and online platforms from Sunday 13th August 2017.
The Agidigba crooner took to his Instagram account to break this news.

“HERE IS MY BIG ANNOUNCEMENT I AM GRATEFUL TO GOD AND SO EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE FEARLESS WRSHP ALBUM IS READY AND THE SONGS ARE SET.
THE ALBUM WOULD BE AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER ON ALL PLATFORMS AFTER THE LAUNCH ON THE 13TH AUGUST DURING THE FEARLESS CONCERT. HERE IS THE ALBUM COVER

The Fearless Wrshp Concert


The highly energetic and dynamic minister who is currently set to host 12 time Grammy award gospel singer, songwriter and music producer, Kirk Franklin in a live recording concert on August 13, which shares the same theme with the soon to be released Album, Fearless believes that God has given him a clear mandate which is to set the pace for the new and coming generation of worship leaders and gospel artistes that anything is possible once God has his hands on it.

For Tim Godfrey, “Fearless” is more than a mere concert or album, it’s a movement.

“Fearless is beyond just a concert, a live recording or an album, it is a movement, it is a charge to march to the gates of the enemies and take back what is rightfully ours through the victory that is already won by the finished work of Jesus Christ.

As I always say to my team, we are not fighting for victory; we are fighting from victory, Halleluyah”.

The first edition of Fearless held in July of 2016 with over 6,000 worshippers converging to raise a praise to God.

The second edition holds on Sunday 13th August 2017 at The Rock Cathedral, House of The Rock Lekki Lagos. Gates open by 2:30pm for the Red Carpets and Concert/Live recording starts at 5pm Prompt.

Ministering alongside Tim Godfrey and Kirk Franklin include Frank Edwards, ROX Nation Artiste, Blessyn, Mike and De Glorious, Wilson Joel, NOSA, and Onos Ariyo.

The launch of the Fearless WRSHP album will take place during the concert/live Recording on the same day.

From Dunghill To Balling! Get Inspired By Same OG’s Story Ahead Of August 10 Release!

Christian Hip Hop artiste Same OG has kept mum about the focus of her August 10 release, nevertheless, there has been a lot of buzz about the artiste in the past days and we took some time to put the spotlight on Same OG.

After the video for her single “I Ball”, not much has been heard from her, as per music, but the impact of “I Ball” was big enough to sustain her, till the big announcement of the yet-to-be-known release.

Same OG is synonymous with excellence, this can be seen in her production, her brand and her mode of delivery. From the get-go, she has set herself aside for greatness. As her sound blares through the airwaves, it is impossible she bypasses you unnoticed.

It wasn’t all blue skies and sunshine for the baller however. Same OG was lifted from the dunghill, so she can lift others. She has known some grey days coming up. She chronicles her journey on her official website grafting her pain and passion vividly. You would grasp her persona and purpose before the vocabulary is conjured in your mind.


Losing her dad to cancer, and her mom, in a short space was a blow no one can be well prepared for. Kicked to the streets and separated from the rest of her family by circumstance, Same OG tried hard to grope out of the dark, buffeted by hunger and suicidal thoughts, she stuck to her passion and it eventually made a way.

Being a scriptwriter and content officer for the online platforms of a firm in Lagos was a breath of fresh air. With the rest of her family attended, she scuttled her way back to her first love – music.

While speaking with SelahAfrik‘s Alex Amos, she attested that music was one of the reasons she was able to pull through the periods of ordeal.

“I had to even do corporate begging”, she chuckled ruefully. “Through those times, music was what kept me going.”

Aside the critically acclaimed single “I Ball”, other songs by Same OG includes, “Give it All”, featuring New-School rapper Limoblaze“Carry Me Dey Go” and “I Believe”, featuring Soul. The single “I Ball” has a beautiful lyrics video and official video complimenting the wave making release.

Expect Same OG’s newest release August 10, 2017.

CAN Demands the release of the new educational curriculum 



The Christian Association Nigeria (CAN) has called on the Federal Ministry of Education and the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council to publish the full details of the controversial new Curriculum of Education if they have no hidden agenda.

The perceived dangers packaged in the new Curriculum of Education has brought the document to the fore since the leadership of the CAN raised the issue in a meeting with the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, and asked the government to ensure there is no discrimination against any student because of religious beliefs in our public schools. ‎

Speaking through its President, Dr. Samson Olasupo A. Ayokunle, the umbrella body of all Christians in the country said it foresaw the danger ahead if the curriculum that merged the Christian Religious Knowledge and Islamic Religious Knowledge with Civic Education is made to stay.

It also disclosed some perceived discrimination against Christian students in the curriculum.

According to Ayokunle: “…In this curriculum, Islamic and Christian Religious Studies will no longer be studied in schools as subjects on their own but as themes in a civic education. This undermines the sound moral values that these two subjects had imparted in the past to our children which had made us to religiously and ethnically co-exist without any tension.

“…Islamic Religious Knowledge was equally made available as a subject in another section without any corresponding availability of Christian Religious Knowledge. Is this not a divisive curriculum that can set the nation on fire? Is this fair to millions of Christians in this nation?”

To buttress his point, the CAN President cited a case in Kwara State where a student was punished for refusing to register for Islamic Religious Knowledge.

He said: “A Christian student in a secondary school in Kwara State had his body lacerated with cane by the Arabic Teacher because the pupil refused to do Islamic Religious Knowledge when French Teacher was not available and Christian Religious Knowledge, Hebrew or Greek were not part of the options at all.”

But in a swift reaction, the Federal Ministry of Education debunked the claims that Christian Religious Knowledge had been removed as a subject of study from the secondary school curriculum and Islamic Religious Studies reintroduced.

According to the Director of Press, Federal Ministry of Education, Chinenye Ihuoma, the ministry has only designed a new subject which merged Civic Education, IRS, CRK and Social Studies into “Religion and National Values”.

According to Ihuoma: “The alternation is not from the minister, this is purely from the National Council on Education. It is just as the council has said that History should be a subject of its own at the basic level in the first nine years.

“Now, a new subject has been introduced, called Religion and National Values. It is a fusion of religion and civics.

“I have not seen the details but in a case where you have subject combinations in the same period, everyone will attend lectures that correspond with their own religion.

“Arabic and Islamic Studies are not standing alone. Islamic Religious Study and Christian Religious Study as well as national values will be taught under a new subject.”

In his own reaction, the Executive Secretary of NERDC, Prof. Ismail Junaidu, who also faulted CAN’s position, contradicted the position of the Ministry.

According to Junaidu: “NERDC hereby states that: CRK is still taught in schools; as a separate distinct subject with the accompanying Teachers’ Guide.

“CRK is not a theme in Civic Education. Civic Education is a distinct subject on its own which teaches the rudiments of good citizenship.”

Junaidu said a directive given by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, on the merger.

He said: “For the avoidance of doubt, the last review of the curriculum was approved in 2013 and implementation commenced in September, 2014. In both instances, neither the Christian Religious Knowledge nor Islamic Studies was removed from the curriculum.

“In fact, at the commencement of the present administration, the Hon. Minister of Education sought and obtained the approval of the National Council on Education to make Christian Religious Knowledge compulsory for all Christians students and Islamic Studies compulsory for their Muslim counterparts.

“Efforts are in top gear to print the Christian Religious Knowledge and Islamic Studies Curriculum separately in order to maintain their characteristics and distinctiveness.

“In this Curriculum, no child should be coerced or compelled to learn or be taught in school any religious studies subject but only one (out of the two) that restrictively relates to the belief system professed by the child and his/her parents.”

However, CAN in a statement on Thursday by Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, said: “If the two religions were different subjects in the new curriculum, why did the Minister has to seek the approval of the agency “to make Christian Religious Knowledge compulsory for all Christians students and Islamic Studies compulsory for their Muslim counterparts”?

“Again, if the two religious studies are being taught separately, why is the agency stating that “Efforts are in top gear to print the Christian Religious Knowledge and Islamic Studies Curriculum separately in order to maintain their characteristics and distinctiveness.

“These statements underscore our position that the subjects were merged before! Do we need to run away from underscoring the importance of these two subjects which focus on teaching the fear of God, love for others and so on at a time like when our nation is facing the challenge of violence and breakup?

“If the new curriculum is treating the two religious subjects separately as being claimed, why do we have a satanic topic in the Civic Education like ‘IS JESUS THE SON OF GOD’? Or is the Acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo who disclosed to CAN leadership that this was in the curriculum he earlier saw lying too?

“The agency claims no student will be forced to register for a religion against his/her wish.

“That is not true. In Kwara State, for example, the discriminatory curriculum has begun and Christian students who refused to register for it already had their bodies lacerated with cane! We have the names of the victims and their schools with us, including the text message from the parents of such students who were beaten.

“Not only that, in the forth coming Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) 2017 TIME TABLE, which runs from Tuesday, 4th July, 2017 to Thursday, 13 Julyin Kwara State, there is no CRK as subject to be sat for. Any reason for this? Instead, on the 13th July, 2017, it has the following; KW/BECE/ 203 Arabic CAIS, KW/BECE/204 IRK JIS; KW/BECE/407 ARABIC JIS and KW/BECE/205 Islamic History. Source:www.kwaraeducation.com.

“The chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria in Delta State has also called to complain that students are calling him to say that their teachers are saying that they will no longer be doing CRK as a subject again. Who is deceiving whom?

“As far as CAN is concerned, the curriculum is a time-bomb, obnoxious, divisive and ungodly and its implementation must be stopped until all the grey areas are addressed. Like we told the Acting President, it’s introduction is an ill-wind that blows nobody any good for so many reasons.

“If we are going to do pilgrimage together as a nation, there must be fair play, mutual respect for one another and justice which can be brought about by different arms of government. We demand for justice from the government on this matter very quickly.

“We request for a return to the curriculum we were using before this dangerous one which did not produce insurgents or a wrongly indoctrinated Nigerians. It was the students that came from a school system where morning devotion was removed that are behind the insurgency and kidnappings that are happening now and then.

“Those of us who passed through the former system where we all did devotion in the morning and in the afternoon at closing in our schools lived together peacefully irrespective of our religions. The government must stop the operation of this new curriculum. It did not come out of a forward looking research but a backward one. A stitch in time saves nine.

“We caution the Federal Government against the use of propaganda in addressing this sensitive issue because the unity of the country is at stake. We are not crying wolves where none exists.

“We are disappointed hearing the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu claiming that CAN was believing a piece of misinformation received from the social media.

“To say the least, that is a misleading statement from a Minister who is not only trying to Islamise the ministry with all the appointments he has made but denying the reality of discrimination policy under his watch.

“We counsel Adamu to reconcile his position with the spokesperson of his ministry who agreed that both CRK, IRK and Civic Education had been merged to become one subject before denying the reality.”

CAN then went on to make it demands known to the Federal Government.

It said: “The implementation of the curriculum must be suspended till a workshop is organized where all the stakeholders must be well represented.

“The Presidency should direct the Federal Ministry of Education to publish the full details of the curriculum on its website to enable everyone know what it contains.

“There was nothing wrong with the old curriculum on Christian Religious Studies and Islamic Religious Studies. What people are yearning for is a return to Civic Education and History for obvious reasons as distinct subjects.

“That the heads of the parastatals and agencies in the Federal Ministry of Education should be overhauled with a view to balancing the religious dichotomy. A situation where 13 of their heads are Muslims while the remaining four are Christians is an ill-wind that would blow no one any good.

“We urge the Presidency to call for a meeting of all stake holders to look at this curriculum line by line and for all of us to own it together before implementation.

“If our call is taken as for granted and nothing is done quickly about this curriculum, we may be tempted to take further action on this curriculum.”
