In June 2021, a video of ace gospel singer Tope Alabi criticizing a popular Christian song, Oniduro Mi, sung by iconic singers Tolu Adelegan and Adeyinka Alaseyori on separate occasions went viral on the Nigerian online space.
“Oniduro Mi” is a Yoruba word that means “guarantor.” The hymn extols God as a guarantor and one who never abandons His people.
Alabi said that God was more than a guarantor to her while commenting on the song. The singer went on to say that there was a period when she wanted to sing the song, but the Holy Spirit forbade her.
The topic triggered a heated debate on Nigerian social media platforms, particularly Twitter, with some online users slamming Alabi.
However, Alaseyori, one of the song’s vocalists, calmed the situation in the midst of the uproar.
“Let Jesus take the wheel. Mummy Tope Alabi is our mother. She’s a mother to me and so many others and by virtue, we have been blessed by her ministrations. Please, let us worship and celebrate God. Let Jesus be at the centre of it”.
