Popular Gospel singer, Tope Alabi has finally tendered an apology to Adeyinka Alaseyori who sang the song Oniduro Mi.
It will be recalled that Tope Alabi while ministering at an overnight church event, openly criticized the Christian song ‘Oniduro Mi eseun o’ a song by Adeyinka. According to her, it was inappropriate to describe God as Oniduro which means guarantor, because He’s more than a guarantor.
Tope, who in the viral video claimed that the Holy Spirit cautioned her from singing the song, has now apologised while admitting that her mistake was “externalizing a personal message in public”.
She said, “Let me acknowledge that my mistake was that I externalised a personal message in public and I am awfully sorry for doing that.
“Initially, I didn’t want to delve into the controversy over the gospel hit song, “Oniduro,” because I have intervened behind the scenes in concert with other stakeholders in gospel music ministry. However, I discovered that online media would not allow the dust to settle calmly.”
