Senior pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Pastor Paul Enenche, and others have arrived at the venue of the burial ceremony for the late gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu.
Religion Nigeria gathered that the ‘Ekwueme’ singer was buried in her home town in Amakpoke Umuaku community, Abia State, two months after her tragic demise in April.
A night of worship was held in Osinachi’s honour in Abuja on Thursday, followed by a Night of Prayer held in Isochi, Umunoci in Abia on Friday.
