Nathaniel Bassey When interviewed by Entertainment News on Channels Television, the gospel singer explained that he was directed by the Holy Spirit to conduct the midnight music and worship online program.
“It started as an inspiration from God, it was the leading of the holy spirit and that was following up on something we call the “Tongue challenge” which was initially praying for one hour every month,” he said.
“In the month of May, when we were done, I just sensed that God wanted us to praise him in the month of June, in the midnight hour based on Acts 16:25-26 and the kind of praise should be the hallelujah kind of praise.”

Bassey showed how excited he is over the eagerness of people to join  the "Hallelujah challenge".

Some critics say it is just another fancy hangout for celebrities. But Bassey is not bothered by the thought.
