Celestial Church of Christ invites Portable
A Lagos State branch of the Celestial Church of Christ has drawn criticism for bringing street-hop artist Portable and Fuji singer Pasuma to its praise night event.
The event flyer was posted on the church’s Facebook page on Wednesday, and netizens took to the comments section to express dissatisfaction.
The flier reads: “JOIN US ON 15th OF DEC, 2023 as we celebrate our 7th Year Anniversary on Our ANKARA/PRAISE NIGHT”
“Performing: ALHAJI WASIU ALABI PASUMA a.k.a. Oganla, HABEEB OLALOMI a.k.a Portable, MAY-SHUA, EVANG. SUNDAY GP a.k.a De Governor”
A Facebook user, Bolanle Bamidele Adewuyi, commented, “This is depressing… Do you want the Church of God to become like this? It is very funny.”
A different commenter, Festus Olanrewaji Ojo, said, “This is unfortunate! A great and deep shame.“
“This is completely nonsensical,” BU KO LA remarked.
“The artists are not complete yet,” Ayo Ife wrote.
Eri Tunmise wrote, “I was just laughing when I saw this flier…why will u call hip-hop and Fuji artist for praise night? Are there no gospel singers again? Well, we are enticing with worldly stuff…This nonsense can only happen at white garment churches… Because other churches like Baptist, Redeem, and CAC can never do this…. Hmmm! The end of the world”
However, others like Abike Garment have expressed their excitement to be present at the event.
Abike, a Facebook user wrote, “I must be there, make I come dance away my sorrow.”
Another Facebook user, Abike Ade also said, “I will be there.”
