On The Rock concert or otherwise called “OTRC” is a yearly project hosted by Gospel Force, it is known to be the first major Christian Rock concert in Nigeria and also the biggest Christian Rock concert. The maiden edition was held at Kingsville Church, Lagos on November 15th, 2015 with an unexpected attendance of 1,500 people. According to the band’s leader, Sultan Aladaba – “We planned with an intention to have about 500 people, but 30mins into the concert there were no spaces left for people to come in”.
There were so many post-event testimonies as a result of the maiden edition and this lead to the 2nd edition, held at Foursquare Gospel Church, National Headquarters on December 11th, 2016 with attendance rising to about 3,000 people. By the advent of the year 2017, Gospel Force moved the project to RCCG, The King’s Court with support from Mr Onome and Mrs Funke Obruthe, Pst. Ben Akabueze, Nathaniel Bassey, Pst Kola Oyeneyin and many others. It held on 10th of December, 2017. The Rock Concert has featured a couple of ministers including Kunle Kenny, Segun Cooper, Ladi Adewumi, Late Eric Arubayi, Rock Of Ages band, Repj360, IkayRocks, Michael Akingbala, Tuke Morgan, Onome and many others.

“I attended the 2015 and 2017 editions of On The Rock Concert. They were wonderful experiences, I had a great time in the presence of the Lord. I was made to realize that there is no recommended way to praise God, there is no law that compels us to worship him in one particular way, as long as your heart is in the right place. I praised God without thinking, in a way I had never done before. As Sultan Aladaba always says, “When you praise God anyhow, he will bless you anyhow”. – Rhoda Irhirhi
