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.”
