‘It is called Rituαl’ – Jaymikee reacts to Asake and Adekunle Gold’s new videos disrespecting Christianity

In a recent tweet, Joshua Mike Bamiloye a.k.a Jaymikee shared his thoughts over the increase in music videos that he believes are desecrating Christianity. Joshua Mike-Bamiloye suggested that these videos could be part of a ritual that promotes materialism and worldly gains.

Backstory: Few days ago, Nigerian secular singer Ahmed Ololade widely recognized as Asake, faced significant backlash for his attire resembling that of a priest in his latest music video titled ‘Only Me’.

In his latest music video, the singer, along with his backup singers and dancers, donned attire reminiscent of priests conducting a Catholic mass in a church setting. However, numerous Nigerian Christians have voiced their disapproval of Asake’s use of props, emphasizing that his actions were disrespectful to the Christian faith. Recall that he had once released a music video where he led goats inside the church.

Few hours ago, another secular singer Adekunle Kosoko, aka Adekunle Gold, released the visual for his newly released hit song, ‘The Life I Chose’. Adekunle Gold was seen sitting comfortably on a chair while singing, indicating that he was living a comfortable lifestyle. Another clip, however, captured him staring at a cross placed on the wall while a crown-like object closely similar to Jesus Christ’s crown of thorns, was spotted on his head.

Joshua Mike-Bamiloye however, admonished the public not to be surprised by the prevalence of such content, as he believes it is a sign of the end times. He encouraged individuals to stand firm in their beliefs and not be swayed by what he perceives as detrimental influences in the music industry.

It remains to be seen how this commentary from Bamiloye will be received by the public and whether it will spark further discussions on the role of music videos in promoting values and beliefs.

In his words;

Why are we shocked at the increase in music videos desecrating Christianity? Don’t you know it’s a ritual?

A “Bow to me and get the riches & kingdoms of this world” ritual. What’s sad is artists here now resulting to it as well. But hey! It’s the end time, YOU hold your ground.

Dramatizing giving the Eucharist, robed up in priestly regalia for a music video that has no connection with Christianity, is disrespectful. In his Bandana video, he depicts black goats troping into the church, with cloven tongues of fire above weird men. Asake, I think, is a Muslim. Why doesn’t he go above and beyond to embarrass his Muslim faith in this same way? Why do Christians even listen to these musicians who bluntly disrespect Christianity?”

@damilola069: “Christian religion looks like playing ground, you can do anything and go scot free.”

@BG_Liberty: “This video 2/10, who directed this? who accepted the idea? what a disrespect to Christianity‍♂. I wish you can try this with your own religion.”

@martins.turner: “Asake look at how you mocked the catholic religion, your battles is with God, Asake do the needful and delete this video.”
