Popular music producer, K-Solo has said that gospel artistes in Nigeria don’t practice what they preach.
Over the week, a video surfaced online where revered gospel singer, Tope Alabi had criticized the popular Christian song, ‘Oniduro Mi’, which was sung by iconic singers, Tolu Adelegan and Yinka Alaseyori, at different times. Alabi has been criticized on social media over comment.
Another gospel artiste, Lanre Teriba in a viral video had also condemned Alabi
In a chat with TheNewsGuru, K-Solo said: “Gospel artistes in Nigeria do not practice what they preach. They don’t practice what the gospel is all about.They are all hypocrites. From the foundation of gospel music that I have done a follow up on, it has always been like this. As much as there is so much hate in the secular world, the hypocrisy in the gospel music industry is worse and dangerous. What makes it dangerous is that we all see ourselves as Christians, but what we say behind is worse than what you can think of. For someone like Lanre Teriba to have jumped on that matter when it was very hot, it’s the height of hypocrisy. Truth is nobody that is a Muslim is actually condemning her. The people condemning are her gospel artistes and Christians in general.A lot of them don’t understand that this is not a war against Tope Alabi, it’s a war against Christendom”.
Sharing his thoughts about how Alabi had corrected Yinka Alaseyori, the beat maker said: “Tope Alabi ought to have corrected Yinka in a better way, not in the way she did. On the flipside, I think she wasn’t talking to Yinka directly. However, to every lay man it was like she was talking to Yinka until when people found out that some other person own the song. Our understanding of God is different. Some people see him as the comforter, some know him as the provider .So that song relates to people in different ways, but making such a correction on stage is absolutely wrong”.
