Nigerians have been reacting after gospel singer Tope Alabi criticised her colleague Adeyinka Alaseyori over her hit song titled ‘Oniduro Mi eseun o’ ( meaning ‘my guarantor, I’m grateful’ in Yoruba).
In a video making the rounds on social media, Tope Alabi said God was more than a guarantor to her. The singer further said that there was a time she wanted to sing the song but the Holy Spirit cautioned her against doing so.
According to Tope Alabi, if Adeyinka Alaseyori had sung the song from the Holy Spirit’s leading, she would have understood that God is more than a guarantor and wouldn’t have said such a word.
Meanwhile, several reactions have been posted on the social media after Tope Alabi’s comment, with many knocking the ace gospel musician.
