Oniduro: See What Tope Alabi Took A Bold Step To Do-

Published

on

Fastnews Nigeria reports that Tope Alabi has taken a bold step.

Popular Nigerian gospel singer, I need Tope Alabi has finally admitted that she was wrong to have publicly called out a fellow singer Toluwalase Adelegan who sang the hit gospel track known as ‘oniduro mi’.
The song was made more popular by another Nigerian gospel singer, Adeyinka Alaseyori who made and released a remix of the song.
It will be recalled that Tope Alabi had been under fire after a video went viral in which she condemned the lyrics of her colleague in the gospel music industry which made reference to God as ‘Oniduro Mi’, meaning ‘My Guarantor’ in the English language.
It will be recalled that Alabi in the viral video, condemned the word ‘oniduro ‘, noting that God was more than ‘Oniduro’ to her, insisting she would never sing the song again even though she likes it.
According to Alabi, there was a time she wanted to sing the song to exalt God but the Holy Spirit cautioned her against taking such an action.

Her stance on the song had attracted a lot of outrage and condemnation from Nigerians but Evangelist Alabi has now come out to apologize about her earlier statement, acknowledging that she made a mistake by externalizing a personal message.

She added that Evangelist Adelegan who sang the song is her daughter in the ministry and the matter has been settled amicably.

Below is her full statement as obtained from Church Gist:“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.

I want to state that Tope Alabi, Adeyinka Adesioye a.k.a Alaseyori and Tolu Adelegan are all members of the same family of God and they belong to the same calling – singing ministry.

“Adeyinka is my daughter in ministry. Her Pastor asked me to pray for her because she took after me, which I did wholeheartedly.

Envy who? Never! I love the girl so much.

She can confirm to you, sir, that we relate so well. God has given each of us the grace to go as far as His enablement could carry us. The atmosphere is wide enough for everyone to stretch her wings of gift without disturbing one another.”

“……I’m being bombarded with calls and visits by Pastors since Monday morning till now. As we speak, another group of Pastors are coming in now. I guess it is because of this same issue.

“……I have been inundated with diverse counsel from different quarters. I hardly sleep since this matter started. While I attend to Nigerian fans on phone calls and online chats in the daytime, our people in the Diaspora will engage me throughout the greater part of the night over the same matter.

“…..I’m not a perfect person yet, I’m still a work in progress in the hands of God. I want people to see me as a mere mortal with my own weaknesses, human frailties and as a learner in the limitless knowledge of God.

I am who I am today only by the mercy of God and the support of millions of gospel music lovers. I have no support base elsewhere outside the awesome Nigerians who feel uncomfortable with my statement.

I see the depth of anger as the measure of their love, admiration and solid support for me and for all of us in the singing ministry.

“Let me acknowledge that my mistake was that I externalised a personal message in public; and I’m awfully sorry for doing that. My friends, colleagues and leaders in ministry who criticized me either openly or privately simply feel disappointed because of the love we share. We are too knitted in the Body of Christ to allow anything to divide us. Human factor is part of our life.

“For those who keep quiet but chose to intercede for us on their knees instead, may God honour them all. And for those who defended me even without speaking with me, I can’t appreciate them enough.”

“…… Sister Tolu Adelegan is a woman I hold in high esteem. Adeyinka, like I said earlier, is my daughter in ministry, they are all valuable sisters and associates that nothing can separate us. This is a mere fog, it will fade away in no time.

“For the comic fellows who are already releasing comedy skits over the matter, I burst into laughter (she laughed again) watching some today.

What a creative people we are. Nigerians are awesome minds who will fashion out tension-relieving stuff from every situation.

“…I appreciate them all. The Bible says in Hebrew 12: 14 that we should pursue peace with everybody and holiness, those are the conditions for us to see God. This is the acceptable path for all of us to follow……”
