According to CNN, over 60,000 participants have joined in the praise and worship session with a single day high of over 50,000 recorded on Monday June 12.
Speaking to CNN, Bassey expressed his surprise at the event’s success stating that he didn’t expect it to become so popular.
“I had a sense which is the leading of the spirit to praise God the whole of this month,” Bassey said.
“Against the backdrop of the challenges in the world today especially in our nation, with the scourge of terrorism and the recession … it has brought a sense of hope and respite. It is a reflection of the desire and hunger for answers and for hope,” he added.
