February 26th 2017, recorded yet another milestone for Bennett Chinedu Daniel, better known as Acapella as he held his annual comedy show, Comedy Goes To Church. It was the 5th anniversary tagged “The Celebration”.
The show which was packaged and presented by Purple Roof entertainment, recorded a huge success as it witnessed a great turnout out of people from all over Lagos, State.
Acapella also took out time to reward loyal fans with loads of gift items such as washing machines, home theaters, microwaves, satellite decorders, smartphones, and lots more.
The stage was graced by top Nigerian veteran gospel singer, Sammie Okposo, and a host of superstar comedians.
When asked how he felt to have to have held this event for five years, he said “Five years isn’t a joke in this highly competitive entertainment circle, I’m happy, privileged and honoured. Although, it hasn’t been easy to pull through, putting a show together is one thing, and having people to attend and support is another thing, so I’m happy, its can only be God. I also can’t end this without saying a big thank you to my Father in the Lord, Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo and his ever blazing wife for giving me this platform to express myself.”
On why he decided to do a raffle draw, he said “Well, its just to say thank you to everyone that took time out to attend and also show appreciation to my fans for supporting the Acapella brand and our annual comedy show for five years. I also want to use this medium to tell them that I am cooking something new for them, they should just expect the unexpected.
The Imo stage born humour merchant, actor and OAP, who also doubles as Cedar Homes ambassador is one big name to reckon with in the Nigeria entertainment industry.
