Precisely, on the 18th of August 2014, out of a desire to create senergy among music ministers, a few of the prominent music minds in Abuja came together to forge a united front. This simple meeting, was latter to snowball into what has become known now as the wide spreading Fellowship of Gospel Music Minister of Nigeria. FOGMMON. This has become the greatest wonder of our time.
FOGMMON The fellowship of Gospel music ministers of Nigeria has now become the fastest growing organisation in Nigeria by dint of National and international spread and affiliations. The primary tenet of Fogmmon which is basically fellowship has become a major pull and alluring reality to numerous gospel musicians in Nigeria who have toiled in the landscape like orphans. As at the last count, 25 states have had runing chapters planted and more states have called to express their desire to join the revolution. Not to mention the four states in the united state that have running chapters and the Macedonian calls from Sieraleon, Gambia, Liberia, Kenya, South Africa, England, France and countless countries world wide.. The major Challenge of the organisation, is basically on how to consolidate the gains of this foundational spread and the to set up the proper structures to faciltate a stable growth process in d nearest future and that it is doing with all amount of committement.
Now , why is Fogmmon so attractive?

It came to fill an obvious void, which is the Lack of fellowship and cooperation among music ministers in Africa. 3.It continues to address the burning issues that confront, the music ministry in Nigeria. 4.

It is the only gospel Music NGO or Association, if you like, that has its chapters spread, accross the six geopolitical regions of Nigeria.
