It was a true spirit-filled encounter at the Fantasy Dome over the weekend when Gospel stars lifted up worship at the 2019 edition of the MTN Ghana Stands in Worship event.

First to perform was Selina Boateng who lit the Fantasy Dome with her exciting performance getting patrons on their feet. The youth could not have enough of contemporary Gospel musicians, Akesse Brempong and Kwesi Oteng’s electrifying performance. To the delight of patrons, the “Ekueme” hit maker, Prosper Ochimana, led the audience in an uplifting and spirited worship encounter, delivering an exceptional rendition of the twi song “Menye Obiaa”
