Mp3bullet.ng presents Top Collaborations between Nigerian and International Gospel artists.
Secular artists aren’t the only persons to have enjoyed International collaborations, Nigerian Gospel Artists have also gotten the benefit of working with International Gospel Artists to produce spirit-filled songs.
In most cases, there is no room for competitiveness in Christiandom, and the major reason why artists from various regions gather together is to spread the gospel more effectively.
There have been times when Nigerian gospel artists have been able to include non-African performers in their songs, which has aided in the dissemination of the kingdom’s message and improved relations between the two countries.
To commemorate some of these outstanding events, this list honours the top 10 Nigerian and International Gospel collaborations.
