Singer, Lanre Teriba, has said that Tope Alabi’s statement about the trending song ‘Oniduro mi’, could have ruined Adeyinka Alaseyori’s career

 

Adeyinka Alaseyori is known to have popularized the Yoruba gospel song.

 

Sneh Tv recalls that Tope Alabi had condemned the popular Christian song, Oniduro Mi, which was sung by gospel singer, Tolu Adelegan.

 

While Alabi has been facing myriads of harsh criticisms online over her comment, Teriba had shared his opinion about the saga as he uploaded a video on his verified Instagram account where he attended an event, alongside Yinka Alaseyori.

 

In the video, Teriba mounted the stage to perform for his audience. However, before he began, he spoke to Alaseyori.

 

“Yinka Alaseyori, you should know that for your life to be better someone has to experience a downfall.”

 

Speaking further, he turned to the audience: “You all will now pray that Lord, anyone that will make wrong statements for my glory to shine, let such person begin to say the wrong things.”

 

When the camera faced Alaseyori, it was clear that she was surprised by Teriba’s statement.

 

In a new development, Teriba noted that Alabi’s remark could have destroyed Alaseyori’s career.

 

“I have seen the video and people have been sending it to me online, but I don’t really like the way people have been taking it. I don’t have any problem with Sister Tope or Alaseyori. I just opined the way I saw things.

 

“If you want to correct a colleague in the industry, you can call the person privately and make the correction, not publicly. That is the way I see it. That is what she could have done as a senior colleague in the industry.

 

“Tope Alabi has been doing beautifully well and a lot of people see her as a role model; so, she could have called her privately. Most Christians make that mistake; you cannot just judge people from a distance, you need to get close to them. If you want to advise the person, do it in person.

 

“All I want to correct is the fact that if anyone has any correction, do it privately. What if the statement she made that day wrecked that girl’s career, what are we going to be talking about today? See, we do not use our voices to condemn anybody because God never taught us to judge anybody. I do not have any problem with her, candidly,” he told Punch.

 

Gospel singer, Adeyinka Alaseyori recently made headlines after her colleague, Tope Alabi, condemned people who refer to God as ‘Oniduro Mi’, which means ‘guarantor’.

 

Alaseyori had done her own version of the trending song, ‘Oniduro Mi’, which seem more popular than the other versions.

 

In a video, which has since gone viral, Alabi averred that although she was not condemning the songs, she believes God is bigger than an entity to be labelled guarantor.

 

Sadly, her view did not go down well with many Nigerians who bash her for criticizing the song.

 

Alaseyori who had kept quiet on the issue before now took to her instagram page to share a word of prayer, calling for peace.

 

In her words: “If you love God, please in God’s name, don’t comment otherwise. May the peace of God and the God of peace fill our hearts. May we receive grace to rise above all weakness. May the hand of God wrap and shield us all. May the power of God do the unimaginable in our lives. May the mercy of God speak forth where we have lost our voices. May the love of God return to our hearts and Altars.

 

“May the fresh fire of revival of the spirit not elude us. May we all come to the real knowledge of God and his power. May we receive help to remain in the secret place of the Most High. May the unity of faith be achieved in my own lifetime. May we not pray and praise amiss. May we begin to tap into new realms of glory.

“May the gate of hell not prevail against the church. We receive help not to submit to the will of the flesh. All in Jesus name I pray and believe. Please share and pray along. #PeaceBeStill.”
