Probably the only gospel musician in Nigeria who is never too far away from controversy, Tope Alabi has again got tongues wagging after she was accused by a traditionalist for using a slang mostly used by them.
Alabi, one of Nigeria’s well known faces and voices in Christendom was seen recently in a performance video in a church, that has now gone viral, using the word:” Aboru Aboye’- a deep occultic greeting language used by traditional worshippers in the south-west. This she said while “ministering” in a church.
Although thousands of online users have given her what they say is a “well deserved” tongue-lash, some traditionalists have now called on the award winning gospel singer to come join them.
Since the video hit limelight, Alabi has not made any statement but trust fans to ‘have all the answer’.
One Ccmoney said: “Why are people defending what they can’t? The greeting is limited to only the idol worshippers, most especially the Ogboni confraternity. Aboru Aboye; then the recipient would answer Aboye Bosise. If you’re still doubting this as a Yoruba person, please try to greet your parents by saying Aboru Aboye then come back and give me a feedback”.
