Pastor Emmanuel Iren also took the time to introduce and celebrate members of the production team. The three music producers on this album; Stephen Adeniyi, Yimika Dakinson and Olusiji Ewedemi, were specially recognised. Pastor Iren also expressed his heartfelt appreciation to his wife, Pastor Laju and his family for their support.
According to the man of the hour, Pastor Iren, the Apostolos album is to “herald prophetically the transference of mantles from fathers to sons which has already begun in the realm of the spirit and this sound is going to announce it prophetically.”
He Iren emphasised the need for the body of Christ to plug into this sound in readiness for the move of God that has started already in this generation. “According to the prayer of the fathers, our generation is set to experience a powerful move of God in a greater capacity”, he said.
