BET’s Sunday Best Top Ten finalist, Niiella Dankwah-Coffie is hosting the Wildfire Worship Service in her home country Ghana, on Sunday, October 17, 2021. The service will be hosted at the Agape House New Testament Church, East Legon – Accra. This comes as a great step for the UK-based Ghanaian singer, who in the past years has been active in the gospel music ministry in the UK and in Ghana.
With her intense vocals and spirit-filled ministrations still fresh in the hearts of many, her event has maxed out numbers in less than three weeks.
Niiella has been based in the UK over the past two years and has worked with various acts including Emmanuel Smith, another UK-based Ghanaian gospel minister, The Spirituals Choir who have gone viral with their hit song ‘Wade In The Water’ that she co-wrote and which is in the running for a Song of the Year award at the inaugural Step FWD Awards. Niiella has also been instrumental in the formation of Sanctuary Music, who along with her K.Collective single ‘Loved By You’ have seen top placements in the Contemporary Gospel and Pop categories of the UK Christian Charts this October.
Beyond these, she has stayed connected with her global audience through social media, sharing her funny moments and personality and also sharing intimate moments of worship even from her living room. Niiella also started a series of covers called Nouvelle Sessions which is exclusive to YouTube.
The truly defining moment of her career has been her competing in BET’s Sunday Best in Atlanta, which is filmed at Tyler Perry Studios. The show featured Erica Campbell, Kelly Price, Jonathan McReynolds and Kirk Franklin as judges and mentors. The experience opened her up to a wider audience, offering her the opportunity to bless many more with her gift.
Her decision to host the worship service has been long coming. According to her, this all came out of a dream she had in which God told her to return home to inspire and encourage her peers and other upcoming creatives with her journey and desire for excellence even within the Christian faith. Sharing the stage with her on the night of the service are celebrated Ghanaian gospel acts Luigi Maclean, Philip Adzale, Efe Grace, Kyei Mensah, Kofi Nkrumah and La Famille Music.
Niiella has an album, Shades of Mercy, to her credit. ‘Obiara Nni Ho’ has been the leading song of the album with over 153k views on YouTube. “My whole life is a testimony of God’s goodness! In worship, I’m completely free and liberated. I want others to feel the same freedom and love that Christ has to give every time I sing.” she says.
If you are in and around Accra, Ghana, the Wildfire Worship Service is the place to be this coming Sunday night.
