Oshodin To Honour Edo Female Gospel Artiste, Palmer Omoruyi In Legendary Concert



The Chief Executive Officer, Surprise Pub and Cafe, Matthew Evbakor Oshodin, has penciled down a notable Nigerian gospel artiste, Deaconess Palmer Omoruyi for an award in his forthcoming Legendary Concert in Benin City.

Giving the reason for the award, he said that Nigeria has a lot of unsung heroes whose praises are usually sung when they passed on to the great beyond.

He said that this should not be encouraged as a country that believes in the development of its people and encourage creativity among its teeming youths.

Oshodin said this while speaking on his forthcoming Palmer Omoruyi Legendary Concert event in the state.

He said on his own, he has chosen to right the wrongs in his time and sets a benchmark for others in the hospitality business to follow.

He said in doing that, he has decided to honour a gospel artiste, Deaconess Palmer Omoruyi, a woman who has broken the celling in her career as a gospel artiste.

He said, honouring her, is a way of letting her know that she is very much valued by the people of the state.

He said, the gospel artiste who has carved a niche for herself in the music industry, has also created jobs for other Nigerians by extension, as there are other persons working under her, which has further reduced the level of unemployment in the state.

Oshodin said the honour to be done to the Edo State born gospel artiste, is to spur other women to look inwards and find out what they are good at with the view of developing them for the well being of humanity.
