For those who attended The Experience gospel concert in Lagos last week, it was a sight to behold. Thought to be the largest gospel concert in the world, hundreds of thousands of people poured into the Tafawa Balewa Square arena, packed tightly into every nook and cranny of the vast stadium.

It’s free to attend and has been ongoing for the past 12 years. organisers from @houseontherockchurch estimate that there were around 600,000 attendees at the concert which saw an international line up featuring a mix of African, European and US gospel artists such as Don Moen, @Donnie McClurkin, Travis Greene, Sonnie Badu, Nathaniel Bassey and Chevelle Franklin.

We went along to set up our camera to catch the crowds as they filled the stadium. The result is this timelapse. Were you there? Share your Experience with us. Do you know another similar concert that is as big as this one? Let us know in the comments.

The Future Awards is an award that celebrates talent from different sectors including fashion, music, journalism and the public sector. This year's theme Nigeria'sNewtribe seeks to highlight a new tribe of young people dedicated to excellence. This is in marked contrast to ethnic and tribal rifts that have ravaged the country in the past.

The Future Awards has been described as "Nobel prize for young people". The awardees from Nigeria called #NigeriasNewTribe will receive their awards on Saturday December 9th at the Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos.

Afterwards TFA plans to migrate to Kenya, Ghana and across Africa to award new tribes across the continent.

The Wedding Party was named the highest grossing film in Nigeria last year, breaking box office records in the country.
Now the hilarious romantic comedy is back with a bang with Wedding Party 2. The premiere will happen in Lagos on 10th December and CNN Africa will be there. Check out the trailer for the film below:

“Before I die I will…” One month ago, @daraolayebi launched the “Before I die” wall, a creative way “to encourage Nigerians to dream big and push forward in their ambition” she says.
The wall is at Freedom park, Lagos and it has been signed by over 500 students.
The dreams and ambitions on the wall inspires us. "Astronaut," "Richest person in the world," "Make my parents proud." What will you do before you die?

These striking images are from Victor Ehikhamenor's ongoing exhibition "In the kingdom of this World" at the Tyburn gallery in London.

Ehikhamenor was part of the team that presented at the Nigeria's Venice Biennale earlier this year - it was the first time the country was showing at the prestigious art event, this exhibition is an expansion on his work at the Biennale.

In this new series of imagery, composed of rosaries sewn on canvases and lace materials, he references the imagery, traditions and symbolism from his childhood of Edo traditional religion and Catholicism.
