On Monday, October 10, 2022, a new milestone was reached in the business with the opening of the brand-new, ultra-modern EeZee Conceptz plant in the center of Lagos. The building, which houses the studios, offices, and other divisions of the group, has come to represent the Nigerian gospel music ministry and industry.
Mr. Ezekiel ThankGod’s “EeZee Tee” birthday and the publication of the book “Doing Music Business: The Kingdom Approach” was bot celebrated at the facility’s debut.
Famous Nollywood producer and actor Hilda Dokubo, Gospel Reggae legend Buchi, CEO of Honesty Missions Mr. Anthony Umeh, EeZee Conceptz Global artists: Chidinma, Great Daniel, Judikay, and Minister GUC were all there for the festivities. Tim and Enkay Ogboruche, the CEO of Tehila Records, were present as well.
Additional prominent guests included Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of Commonwealth of Zion (COZA). With several men of God in attendance, he blessed and launched the book. EeZee Tee’s parents, siblings, wife, and daughter were also in attendance.
EeZee Tee stated in a statement prior to the publication of the book that establishing structure and adhering to standards for the Gospel music industry in Nigeria is not just a call that he is resolved to accomplish, but also a discipline for him.
“Man is born with an appointment to discover, fulfill purpose and vision that is in sync with divinity and glorifies God,” he said. “I had the privilege of being born and nurtured in a Christian home. My beloved parents taught me the way of the Lord and service to God early. I employed my skill in music to serve God’s people as a drummer.”
“Growth was encountered by the word of God, and the indispensable work of the Holy Spirit. The faith walk and service in the vineyard wasn’t without challenges which prompted a burden by the Spirit to proffer solutions that could mitigate challenges within the Gospel music industry and advance God’s Kingdom. I figured that the music ministry/industry (MINDUSTRY) in the body of Christ needed and still needs an intervention by willing and yielded soldiers of Christ (Both as investors and contributors) called for SERVICE, IMPACT and BUSINESS on this mountain of Arts & Entertainment, to harness its powerful potentials for the propagation of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. This mountain has long been ignored and has been ravaged by infiltrators from the pit of hell (The Luciferian Agenda) which has caused a few setbacks in the Gospel Music industry in general. The secular or mainstream platforms utilizing its power, influenced culture, spirituality, emotions, fashion, politics, language, finance, sociology etc.“
“Yes there has been huge growth and progress in the MINDUSTRY, nevertheless The Mindustry in Nigeria suffered a setback in the attempt to rightly influence the world, not because it was void of the anointing or knowledge to so do, but was impeded by the inability to embrace an understanding of the principles, strategies and technicalities of utilizing the navigations of the ecosystem to effectively influence the world for the Kingdom of God. Over the years therefore, I was persuaded that my platform for Kingdom expansion is not the “church” in a denominational sense but explore the word of God to a generation in dire need of restoration through Gospel Music. My vision, by the help of the Holy Spirit is to proffer solutions that mitigates this knowledge deficit by revealing working principles which are being made possible by the right utilization of my God-given potentials on the mountain of Arts & Entertainment, thereby propagating the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.“
“As a Kingdom witness and Music Executive, my earnest desire ultimately, is that Gospel Music in Nigeria and globally is respected for the life-changing impact and excellence it brings in its purest form.
“To that end, I have compressed my thoughts, experiences, and knowledge in a book form titled “Music Business: The Kingdom Approach” slated for public presentation on the 10th of October, 2022.
“At the risk of sounding immodest, permit me to say this is the birth of the “MINDUSTRY,” the balance of Ministry values and Industry principles in the Mountain of Media and Entertainment. Combining the twin values of competence and Character.
“I am grateful to God for the gift of life, the gift of vision, the revelation and alignment of purpose and most of all, the Grace of God to fulfill purpose.We must stand up high and start working resolutely as God helps us. Whatever improvements we note and desire, God has given us the ability to effect.”
