Tope Alabi Under Fire For Attacking Alaseyori’s ‘Oniduro Mi’ Song
Ace Gospel singer, Tope Alabi, is being called out In social media over her viral video where she criticised a now popular song, “Oniduro Mi,” by iconic singer, Yinka Alaseyori.
In the Yoruba language, Oniduro Mi means “Guarantor,” and Alaseyori in her song praised God as her Guarantor, one who never forsakes His people.
Commenting on the song, Alabi stated that God was more than a Guarantor and there was a time she wanted to sing the song but the Holy Spirit told her not to do so.
Tope Alabi’s comment quickly sparked negative reactions from music lovers as the Gospel singer is presently trending across social media platforms.
Speaking on the issue on her Instagram page, Nollywood actress, Anita Joseph, wrote, “But there’s nothing wrong with this line anyway. The song is blown, the thing don enter Gospel musicians’ side. Open its season. Sending them LOVE and LIGHT kpichicom Awa’ m.”
Singer, Slimcase, was of the view that Tope Alabi could have had a private discussion with Alaseyori.
He wrote, “Get wisdom; in all thy getting, get understanding. What if she holla at her and tell her in private. That’s why the Bible says ‘Come let us reason together”.
Adetutu Balogun wrote: “Tope Alabi publicly condemned Yinka Alaseyori’s Onídùró mi song, but God changed the criticism to free PR”.
Tope’s public destructive criticism of a fellow gospel singer’s song has been said to be from a place of greed and envy. It was also recalled that the critic has severally used that term to describe God in some of her songs in the past. More so, she had in the past been trolled for the mention of certain words in her songs, “gbese” dance steps on her birthday but was defended by her fans and followers.
To say the least, some of her fans and followers have expressed their disappointment over her comment as a Christian and a mature singer who has been in the industry for a long time towards a fellow singer.
