Africa’s premiere gospel nightclub, the Underground Gospel Lounge, is celebrating its one-year anniversary on Sunday January 25, 2015, in Abuja, Nigeria’s federal capital territory.
Officially launched in January 2014., the night lounge is built around the principles of taking the gospel of Christ to the world through unconventional means.
Since inception, the club has featured a wide range of controversial discussions on issues affecting young Christians and non-Christians, such as smoking, alcoholism, sex, addictions, tattoos and pop culture.
Within a year, the club which is located at RENOS, #57, Lobito Crescent, Wuse 2, Abuja, has also played host to secular and gospel icons ranging from Ice Prince, Samsong, Asu Ekiye, Sokleva (Rooftop MCs), Sho Barraka among many others.
Ohimai Amaize, boss of The Underground, attributed the club’s staying power to the grace of God, saying: “I am so happy that we are celebrating one year since our journey began.
“For us, this can only be God because many have tried to walk this path but couldn’t come this far. One year may be very little in the eyes of men, but with God it is not how far but how many lives have been touched and impacted within this period.”
Two of Abuja’s finest Gospel radio DJs – DJ Lambo and DJ Ernesty – are a regular delight at The Underground, providing music non-stop on club nights, which hold between 7pm and 10pm every Sunday.
Sunday’s one-year anniversary party will feature performances from Rymsta Ray, Christ Rydaz, JSB, Don Sam, DJ Lambo, DJ Ernesty and a host of others.
