”I will still work with more ”unlikely” people” singer, Sola Allyson addresses critics of her collaboration with Adekunle Gold
By Patricia Uyeh
After folk singer, Sola Allyson collaborated with Adekunle Gold in a classic song remake, she got heavily criticized by some of her followers for collaborating with a secular artiste, given the faith based kind of songs she had been known to do.
In a recent interview, the”Eledumare” crooner talked about why she chose to feature Adekunle Gold on her song. According to her, their music style is similar besides the song has a clear message for parents and guardians and does not have vulgar language.
To further clear the air on the criticisms arising from insinuations that she is deviating to secular music, Sola Allyson took to her Instagram to write:
”They say silence is the best answer for a fool. But, me, I don’t believe anyone is a fool, I just think it is ignorance that would make someone be foolish, which could be helped if he opens his mind and be taught.
”How can you sit in a corner of your house, attend a Church in another corner, having blabbed some crammed “letter killeth” words about your assumed salvation, and then think you have the right to judge that some other people who are not in your own corner are worldly??? What kind of self aggrandisement is that? Someone you don’t KNOW?
The beautiful voiced singer then went on to educate her critics about the Christian faith; ”Are you going to let your light shine or hide it under a bushel? Are you going to sit there and swim in your own ignorance of being “saved”? You’ll be shocked.
”Do you really know The Christ or you only know ABOUT HIM by what you’re “taught?” Is it about the dogma, doctrine or culture of your own small mind? You’ll be shocked.”
She added that no one was there, when she got the call, thus, no one would be able to determine how it should play play out. She however encouraged her fans to seek out what their own “call” is in life, with as much energy as they have put into criticizing her collaboration.
The usually taciturn singer told fans off for interfering in her call, hear her; “All these “I prefer you like this”, “you know they’re worldy” and so on. Who are you?!
Which Bible are you reading? Mind your own life. Walk your own walk. Don’t be ignorant, which makes others see you as a fool, me I don’t think you’re a fool sha.
”I’m working with @adekunlegold, wait and hear the song first before you have hypertension for my sake! I know who I am. Mind your own domain. If I come to your mind, send money. Or good thoughts. I WOULD STILL WORK with more “unlikely” people in your own eyes. Perhaps my kind of Christianity is strange to you because your mind is confused about the Faith.
Destiny here I come! Into The Hands of The Maker I commit my all. Thou knowest all intentions as YOU search all hearts. I was made to do this, not in any laid down way, but in the particular design you have for my own destiny. I am bold because of YOU! My fear is gone! I’m a Singer who shines The Father’s Light. Watch out for the manifestation of #TheSolaAllyson”
