According to Nii Okai, Gospel singers publicised for the show were carefully selected to mark milestone having been part of his success story in the last two decades.

“I’ve groomed a number of musicians who are doing very well now and I’m always proud of their exploits. As such, this concert, which is quite instrumental in my career and story as a musician will afford me the opportunity to have all of them on a stage.

“That also tells of my influence in the Ghanaian Gospel music space. I don’t want it to be a place of pride for me but to express my gratitude to God for using me as a vessel to be a blessing in the lives of many musicians who have served with me since my debut album in 2003 and are equally impacting lives in Ghana and beyond,” he stated.
