Gospel singer Tope Alabi has thanked her fans for their support and understanding after she was seriously criticised for her comment on the song ‘Oniduro mi’ sang by Adeyinka Adesioye.
The singer had in a viral video condemned the song, saying the Holy Spirit did not approve of using ‘Oniduro’ to describe God.
She had explained that when she tried singing the song, the Holy spirit cautioned her.
“Look at the enormous things God has done and somebody now came out to say Oniduromi e seun. God is not my own guarantor. God is more than a guarantor. I also loved that song, but the day I wanted to sing it, the Holy Spirit said ‘shut up your mouth.’ This is not like saying a song is not good,” she had said in the Yoruba language.
“When you receive a song in the spirit, there are some deliberations you must have with the Holy Spirit before releasing it to the public, otherwise, if you release it the way it comes, individuals will just be singing rubbish.”
But on Sunday, the singer took to her verified Instagram account to appreciate her fans.
She wrote, “Appreciation to everyone: Those He saves are His delight, Christ will hold us fast; precious in His holy sight, He will hold us fast.
“He’ll not let our souls be lost; His promises shall last; Bought by Him at such a cost, He will hold every one of us fast.”
Alabi continued: “I register my unreserved appreciation to you all for standing by and for me through the past week. The Lord will never leave us all in Jesus’ name. Thank you all and may the good God bless you all in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
