Tope Alabi under fire for criticising Yinka Alaseyori’s Oniduromi

Published

on

Popular gospel singer Tope Alabi is under fire following her criticism of colleague Adeyinka Alaseyori over her popular hit song titled ‘Oniduro Mi eseun o’ (my guarantor, I’m grateful).
The song was one of the most played in 2020 and Alaseyori is still the reigning gospel singer.
Many fans had alleged Tope Alabi’s criticism was based on envy.
In a video making the rounds on social media, Alabi had descended on the song by Alaseyori, saying it was meaningless and not inspired by God.
She had said during a song ministration in a church, “What kind of song is that? God is not my guarantor; He is more than a guarantor.
“Although I have tried to correct the singer (who isn’t the original composer) but she got angry. I loved that song but when I tried to sing it the Holy Spirit told me to shut up.”
Alabi’s comments had also drawn a reaction from her colleague Sola Allyson, who took to social media to air her view.
Allyson insisted God is the ultimate guarantor.
She said, “For me and many souls which connect to this song, Oníìdúró mi, we have stories which clearly show that we would have been forgotten long ago if not for the guarantor side of The FATHER that was expressed in our lives.”
She also said, “I commend Yinka for making the song more accessible to souls all over the world and I wish her more help in all her doings.
“The song tells the story of many of us who had no backing from anyone and none to rest on or be as hiding place as to what our tomorrow would have been.
“I first heard this song years ago from Mama Bola Are at my home-out-of-home, @agape_pground in Akure and I immediately connected with it because, me, I would have been ridiculed and deserted and forgotten! The song helps me express my gratitude in that respect very succinctly.
“I have come to learn that we understand the concept of GOD differently, depending on how we were “given” and how much we are granted to see as we make effort to dig deeper. And that’s why I live my life devoid of divides which different abilities in understanding breed.”

Beyonce and Jay Z Bought the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail, World’s Most Expensive Car

Published

on

Earlier this week, Rolls-Royce unveiled its first coachbuilding project in a long time and the first in a series of three nautically-based commissions. It’s called Boat Tail and it’s an outrageous, gorgeous and painfully expensive vehicle that’s already secured the title of the most expensive new car in the world.

Given its £20 million ($28.4 million) price tag, Boat Tail sure is expensive. It beats previous record holders, like the Bugatti Voiture Noire (€16.5 million / $20.2 million) and the Rolls-Royce 2017 coachbuilt Sweptail (£ 10million / $14.2 million) and, for the time being, is holding on to that number one spot.

Boat Tail is not just the priciest new car in the world and the next step in bespoke for Rolls-Royce, but also a true engineering wonder. It finds inspiration in nautical designs and is meant to be more than just a means to a destination, but the destination itself, through the inclusion of a stunning picnic set in the rear, which deploys at the touch of a button. This sounds gauche in writing, so think of it as a picnic set that took 4 years and $28 million to bring into reality, to be enjoyed on the Cote d’Azur.

So, this brings the question: who commissioned such a vehicle? Rolls-Royce, for one, would only say that the “patrons” are a power couple known worldwide both for their work and their art curation. “Their desire was to create a response to a life of hard work, success achieved, and celebration required,” the marque said earlier this week. “Their Rolls-Royce Boat Tail should be joyful, a celebratory car to enjoy with their family.”

The same release noted that blue was a favorite color for the two patrons, as was a shared love of fine champagne. They like their champagne to be cooled down exactly to 6 degrees Celsius, which led to the incorporation of a fridge in Boat Tail that did just that with extreme accuracy.

Industry reports are naming this power couple as Jay Z and Beyonce and, based on the tidbits offered by Rolls-Royce above, the description matches. They’re both passionate about boats, love champagne and have an outspoken adoration for everything blue ever since their daughter Blue Ivy was born. “It’s thought this fantastic car has been commissioned by Beyonce and Jay Z, with all its detailing matching their favorite things,” a spy tells The Telegraph. Rolls-Royce would not comment on the report.

Most importantly though, with a combined net worth of $1.9 billion, Jay and Bey are wealthy enough to afford to spend a fortune on a bespoke car they’ll probably take picnicking once.
