How Pastor Ibiyeomie stopped 50 Cent concert in Nigeria



A Nigerian pastor has revealed that he was ‘responsible’ for the cancellation of US rapper 50 Cent Concert which was billed to hold in Port Harcourt, Rivers State in 2004.

Pastor David Ibiyeomie of the Salvation Ministries based in the city, said the concert date clashed with a crusade planned by the church. To his dismay, many church members had also bought the tickets to the 50 Cent concert.

Ibiyeomie went back memory lane in a speech to mark the beginning of 21-day fasting by members of the church.

The statement was published by Church Gist on Monday.

Here is Pastor Ibiyeomie’s interpretation of what happened:

We were to have a crusade at the Civic Centre and a young man called 50 Cent was to perform in Port Harcourt. He was at the peak of his career.

How many of you know him? 50 Cent was to come to Port Harcourt to perform, Port Harcourt was on a standstill with the advert, it was one brewery, a known brewery that was doing the advert and that same day he was to perform we were to hold a crusade at the Civic Center Port Harcourt…even those who were to come for the crusade had bought the ticket for 50 Cent’s concert.

I said come oh, that means if 50 Cent comes nobody will come for the Crusade and the whole of Port Harcourt, the advert was so thick.

I came up a night to his coming…on the rostrum. I said listen if 50 Cent comes tomorrow, I am not called by God..50 Cent will not come.

A young guy said…(he is a Catholic) “o boy you hear wetin this man dey talk, 50 Cent no go come, if dat man no come then I go dey born again”.

Meaning, are you hearing what this pastor is saying? If 50 Cent does not come then I will be born again. He stood here to testify. How many of us were in Church then? He said 50 Cent won’t come? When I don buy ticket?

I said listen, if you drop pin at Civic Center, it will sound because the town was on a stand still.

I said two Kings don’t reign, that was exactly what I said. Jesus can’t be reigning and 50 Cent too will reign. I said he will not come tomorrow. He was already in Nigeria; he had performed in Lagos already and he was on his way to Port Harcourt.

I said, “Listen, by tomorrow 50 Cent will not perform in this Town,” I decreed it.

He got into the plane on board the flight, Charly Boy too was on board and then Charly Boy carried their PMAN (Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria) Crew, Americans said no, this crowd can’t follow us.

You know when you speak, God will orchestrate things anyhow…they said, this crowd can’t follow…they had a tough argument on board, the Americans advised 50 Cent to turn back that he is at risk to go to Port Harcourt, he did not come.

Are you hearing what I am saying? His concert was cancelled.

I don’t care what wants to challenge you, anything you decree in these 21 days, God will honour them.
