Nigerian Gospel Television X2D (Xclusive 2 Divinity), is rounding off work towards the unveiling of their 24-hour music and lifestyle channel.
A brainchild of Deji Irawo, the Chief Responsibility Officer (De Kings vision LTD owners of X2D), X2D started five years ago as a contemporary gospel entertainment TV programme showcasing high quality content to viewers across Nigeria with the aim of providing quality, edifying content and winning souls for Christ.
The channel’s initial terrestrial broadcast was on the HI Life channel of HITV in July 2008 and OGTV the same year. Thereafter, X2D has broadcasted on over 40 TV stations across Africa and the UK.
Speaking at the recent official press conference of the 24 hour channel,CEO of X2D, Mr Deji Irawo said, “It’s only natural that we should become a 24-hour channel. That’s the trend in the world now and we had to follow the trend, not just because it’s the trend, but because it will help us better in our aim of spreading the Word of God faster and better.
“Also, the increase in demand for our daily content across various TV stations, the rise in the obscenity on TV channels, emergence of multitudes of gifted gospel artists in our communities, the need to preserve our families and raise a generation for Christ and our resolve to create a more excellent brand brought us to the point where we just had to make the shift to a 24-hour channel to be viewed across Africa and the world.”
He also announced renowned Gospel Artiste, Kenny K’ore (of Infinity group) as the channel’s brand ambassador. The conference was well attended by members of the press as well as notable personalities such as Mr Ayoola Jolayemi of SwiftThink Limited & Pastor Taiwo Lemoshe.
Amongst those in attendance from the Nigerian Gospel Music Industry include; Olufunmi, RighteousMan, Nikki Laoye, IGE (Project Fame Vocal Coach), Sola Allyson, Joe Praize, DJ Gosporella.
