The year 2020 has indeed been a challenging one for people all over the world and Nigerians are definitely not left out of the equation.
Perhaps, this explains why the spirit of gratitude to the Lord has been amplified by many as the Christmas and New Year seasons are ushered in.
Legit.ng recently sighted a beautiful video posted on Facebook by a user identified as Awoyale Opeyemi.
The video captured the moment traders and customers took the streets of Balogun market in Lagos Island to dance and give praises to the Lord for what has been a long and overwhelming year.

Opeyemi who seemed to have been present at the venue disclosed that someone else who was present helped him to capture the priceless moment on camera.
Women who had their wares spread out in front of them, customers making market rounds to find the best deals, shop owners with unsold goods stacked high in their stores among others all took a pause to sing and dance.
A band was also set up in the middle of the market to keep the mood high and get everyone’s groove on.
