“The competition is to motivate the choir and other local choirs to improve their singing. As such, I want to urge the choir to take this mantle give it life and bring great improvement to singing in the church. This is a sacred task that we must all endeavour to perform. Hence, I urge the Tabernacle choir to lead by example “.–OGD.

The Asiwaju of Remo Christians Choir Festival is an annual gathering for choral performances by various church choirs, choral groups within and outside Ogun State,South-West, Nigeria.

The programme,which started about 16 years ago as part of the annual family thanksgiving of Otunba(Engr.) Gbenga Daniel at the International Ecumenical Worship Centre,”Abraham Tebernancle “,Sagamu,Ogun State,a worship place he built to honor God and immortalize his late father. His Grace,Most Revd Abraham Adebola Daniel,JP(1916-2011).


The choir Festival has spiritual and moral essence for preaching the gospel through music and improving singing in our churches.

Though,it started as part of a thanksgiving event,it was separated and expanded as a distinct programme and rebranded,”The Choir Festival” in 2022,which marked the maiden edition.

As the name suggests,the annual Choir Festival is sponsored by the former Governor of Ogun State and Asiwaju of Remo Christians, Otunba (Engr.) Gbenga Daniel {FNSE,FAEng),who is the initiator and founder of this laudable programme. He was inspired by the need to promote singing in churches in the community and beyond. Several organisations, companies and individuals have now shown interest to become partners for the programme,as it’s scope and impact as a vehicle for spiritual growth through singing, continue to increase.


Now it’s second edition came up on Sunday, 30th April,2023 with the theme,”Grateful Hearts” which was held at The Abraham Tebernancle Church,Oba Erinwole Road,GRA, Sagamu,an Ecumenical Worship Centre under the management of the Nigerian Baptist Convention (NBC).
