Evangelist Tope Alabi,a popular gospel mucisian is under tackles for condemning song by Yinka Alaseyori in a viral video.
We noticed that Alaseyori, had in a song described God as her (spiritual) guarantor or advocate.
The song, ‘Oniduro mi e seun’, meaning ‘thank You my Guarantor’, became very common among the people of the South West especially in their churches.
But, Tope Alabi, making evil reference to Alaseyori during an event, said it will be a terrible mistake for anybody to tag God as his or her guarantor.
She said there was a day she wanted to sing the song, but the Holy Spirit told her to shut up.
To her, God is more than a guarantor or surety and it will be terrible to describe him so.
The singer spoke in Yoruba language that Gospel musicians need to digest songs very well before releasing them to the public, otherwise individuals will be singing something meaningless.
“Look at the enormous things God has done and somebody now came out to say Oniduromi e seun. God is not my own guarantor. God is more than a guarantor. I also loved that song, but the day I wanted to sing it, the Holy Spirit said ‘shut up your mouth.’ This is not like saying a song is not good. When you receive a song in the spirit, there are some deliberations you must have with the Holy Spirit before releasing it to the public, otherwise, if you release it the way it comes, individuals will just be singing rubbish. He has given us the brain to digest through it very well, then bring it back.”
But, many have been attacking Tope Alabi online, saying she was only envious of Yinka.
See some comments below.
Adetunbi Saheed Ige: “Now I can understand. Tope Alabi thinks she can be the champion forever? This woman is giving her a run for her money in praising God and Aunty Tope just wants to bully her to silence. It is not possible. This woman just hit global limelight due to Tope Alabi’s envy.”
Babajide Oderinde: “Whatever Tope Alabi’s real intention was with the unchristian-like and childish stunt she pulled, she has only succeeded in making this gifted woman more popular. Although I have been listening to her soul lifting songs for some time now, but I didn’t know what she looks like until now. This is a case of God using your enemy’s antics to lift you up. The kinda hatred and earthly competition that runs in Christendom.”
Paul Olayemi: “You people don’t really know how God has done it for the lady that sang the song to be more famous. God has used the so-called Tope Alabi to be her advertising channel without any payment. She believes she was bringing her down without knowing the criticism she did to her will turn to her uplifting. Tope Alabi, thanks for the free advert you did to promote the lady through your jealousy.”
Princess Pauline: Abraham was great, Isaac was very great, but Jacob was exceedingly great. Alaseyori is your time to Yori. If you know, you know.
Anuoluwa Iyiola: Tope Alabi gets pride. Imagine her attending a christain programme, if you don’t pay her up to N250k, she can never come, if not more. Business gospel artiste, I am not saying they should not give you money, but gospel is not for sale.
“Nigerian pastors are fraudsters” – Singer, Samklef says, reconciles with Daddy Freeze
Nigerian Singer, Samklef and Daddy Freeze have ended their squabble 3 years after they mercilessly dragged and blocked each other on social media.
Recall that in 2018, Samklef and Daddy Freeze disagreed over religion.
Trouble started when Freeze criticized a report about the healing of a mentally challenged man at an RCCG church.
Samklef, who was displeased with his critics against men of God, slammed Freeze, telling him that his constant criticism of the church was getting boring.
The exchange heated up, with Freeze telling Samklef his career was dead which led to the singer calling him a “fake ass oyinbo” and his followers “mumu Satan followers”.
What Daddy Freeze said about Sound Sultan after his death
Following the development, they later blocked and unfollowed each other on all their social media platforms.
However, Samklef took to his Instagram account on Sunday to reach out to Daddy Freeze, stating that he can now see “clearly”.
He said most religious leaders are “419” and Freeze was right all along.
“I was blind and ignorant but now I understand and can see clearly.
“Everything Daddy Freeze has been saying is the truth. 90 percent of the so called Nigerian men of God are fraudsters.
“It’s your faith that makes you whole so they collect money for miracles that happens through you.
‘Praying to Lucifer more effective than praying to Jesus’ – Daddy Freeze
“Daddy Freeze is the John the baptist of this generation. I can finally see,” he wrote.
In his response, Freeze acknowledged his acceptance and admitted he should have been patient with Samklef at the time.

The Nigerian leader described Sound Sultan’s demise as a loss to the music industry and Nigeria.
Buhari said the rapper, singer, songwriter and actor, “lived an exemplary life and achieved several milestones in his career”.
The President said he contributed greatly to the development of music and entertainment through his artistic genius, creativity and talent, which has inspired many.
He affirmed that Sound Suntan was kind, generous, and deeply passionate about issues in the country, which was reflected in his music and art.
“As an avid basketball fan, he made telling contributions to the development of local basketball in the country,” the statement added.
Buhari prayed for the repose of the soul of the departed and comfort for his family, friends and associates.
T.B Joshua: Are you true Christians – Daddy Freeze questions top pastors over funeral turnout
Popular On-Air Personality, OAP, Daddy Freeze, has slammed top Nigerian pastors for not attending the funeral of the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Late Prophet T.B. Joshua.
The deceased clergyman died on June 5 and was buried on Friday, July 9.
We had reported that top pastors, church owners and religious leaders in Nigeria were conspicuously missing during the burial of the late Prophet.
It was also observed that the only notable clergyman who attended his funeral was the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria CAN, Lagos state chapter, Rt. Rev. S.T.V Adegbite.
Reacting, Freeze in a video via his social media account expressed his disappointment in top Nigerian pastors who failed to identify with the deceased prophet even in death.
He stated that no matter what may have transpired among them when he was alive, they should have had a forgiving heart and attended his funeral.
“Prophet T.B Joshua has been laid to rest. May his soul rest in peace.
“However, the turnout of Christians especially top Nigerian pastors who attended this man’s funeral makes me worry.
“If we truly are Christians, every church should have sent a delegation.
“I must say I am so disappointed in all these pastors because they have not shown a legacy of love. So, none of them could fly their private jets and attend the funeral?
“If you ask me and you expect me to be honest, I am entirely disappointed in all the big daddies that we have.
“If they behave like this, how are we the children going to behave? You people have turned gods of men.
“I’m sure they don’t understand the gravity of their actions, especially these ones we call our daddies,” he said.
