Veteran gospel singer, Tope Alabi, has been dragged on social media for mocking her colleague, Adeyinka Alaseyori’s song ‘Oniduro’
Tope Alabi described the hit song ‘Oniduro Mi’ composed by her colleague, Adeyinka Alaseyori, as belittling God’s capacity.
Ms Alabi made the remarks in a viral video when she was invited to minister at an event over the weekend. She said the song, which means ‘My Guarantor’, does not explain God’s powers fully.
She also inferred that her colleague didn’t think deeply about the lyrics of the song fully before recording the track.
She said, “God is beyond being a guarantor to Man. I’m not saying that the song is not beautiful. However, when we receive heavenly inspiration to sing, there are some deliberations we must have with the Holy Spirit before we can bring out such a song.
”If we keep singing the gospel just as the Spirit-inspired, there is the possibility that we all will be singing absurdly. As gospel singers, God has given us the brain to digest, chew, and fully comprehend the inspiration given to us before we bring it to life.”
Ms Adeyemi, who is Ms Alabi’s great rival, composed her hit ‘Oniduro mi’, which was part of a worship medley titled ‘Arojinle’ in 2020.
There have since been reactions all over social media. Here are a couple of tweets from tweeps that have come for Tope Alabi.
