Nigerian priest in Switzerland sheds tears as his parishioners sing him Igbo song

A Nigerian priest based in Switzerland has many Nigerians in their feelings after a clip of him crying during a service hit the internet. Many people can guess that priest must have felt an intense wave of nostalgia after his parishioners sang an Igbo hymn and it made him burst into a pool of tears. The rather heart-warming clip easily reminds social media users that no matter how far and wide a human travels or conquers, home is where their heart belongs. It is what explains the reaction of the priest who first smiled as he heard his parishioners singing in Igbo. As the song went on, he was moved to tears and it was clear that the song meant a lot to him especially as it was rendered in his language. It is true what they say; language and music are very powerful tools. June 2019
