‘Gbese ko Tesumole’ is not a praise song – Moromoluwatiketike cautions praise leaders

Fast rising gospel content creator, Moromoluwatiketike has called out praise leaders who have cunningly added ‘Gbese ko tesumole’ to the songs on their praise list during ministrations.

Tesumole is a song released in 2019 by a Nigerian rapper named Azeez Adeshina Fashola professionally known as Naira Marley.

Shortly after its release, Naira Marley predicted that the song will soon find its way inside the church because of the catchy chorus of the song that subtly depicts victory over Satan and also challenging the followers of Jesus Christ to lift their legs high and step on the Devil.

Not long after, many gospel praise leaders pulled the part of the song that dares sons and daughters of Jesus Christ to step on the Devil to the pulpit and sprinkle it during praise sessions.

In a tweet made by Moromoluwatiketike, she cautioned praise leaders to desist from using the song during praise session because it is not a praise song.

In her words;
Dear Praise Minister “Shebi omo jesu ni e Fe se kan tesumole” IS NOT A PRAISE SONG E Pele Eku Orin

In reaction Some of her followers on Twitter have reacted to her tweet as many affirmed that the song is really not a gospel song.

Agboro Adeniyi: Mummy G.O, I once preached against such and dances inspired by secular artistes in the church, Dem say na so King David danced ooo. I rest my case. Olorun a ko wa mo nse.

Gbemi Takuro: Thank you !!! I attended a church as a first-timer where this was sang. I felt like the odd one out there because, while others danced to it in excitement, I stood in shock.

In a bid to make Christianity fun, we should not forget that Christ is our standard, not the world.

Beauty Olise: Am sorry to say this ma..but I must say it i have videos of the choristers in the church or youth church your husband is in charge of and the kind of songs they sing..

hmmmm sounds like that of an secular musician called Mali not to talk of the dance step

Blessed Above all: It’s unfortunate that is the trending songs and dance pattern. Fine, the church is trying to accommodate everyone but some filtering has to be done

Lady Jade Global: I thought it was just me. I had a cringe moment when I was at a church and the singer said so we have tiktokers in the house ?

The next thing, tiktok dance. It was off for me. Because who is the center of the worship or you want to show off new tiktok dance? Let’s be discerning

Fortunate: God bless you, it reminds me of Jaymikee’s pineapple pineapple ….. God help this generation.

Temilade: This can be a substitute  Jesus revealed…and glorified Every nation… Proclaim his name It has the same vibe Learnt it from koinonia Changing the lyrics of worldly songs is not creative

Jumoke Ajakaiye: Let’s assume Naira Na born again Christian, and sang the song, una go accept it ba?

But because the song came from someone that most of you think or let me say he is not saved, it’s a bad song. Now who gives inspirations?

All these una ministers, wey go form song, Dey put tungba omo ita vibes in it, e joor, that one Dey acceptable ba? See wetin I know .

I hate arguing anything about religion. But make we sha Dey. Maybe you people wil start sensitizing una minister, ti de ori ijo (dance)

Sebi omo jesu ni wo (You are a child of God)
Gbese ko t’esu mole (Lift your leg and step on the devil)
Gbese na, gbese ko t’esu mole (Lift your leg, lift it and step on the devil)

Chinedu t’esumole (Chinedu, step on the devil)
Gbese na, gbese ko t’esu mole (Lift your leg, lift it and step on the devil)

Amaka t’esumole (Amaka, step on the devil)
T’esumole, wa sa le t’esu mole (Lift your leg, you should be able to step on the devil)
