VIDEO: Tope Alabi under Fire for Using ‘Aboru Aboye’ in Her Songs

Popular Nigerian Gospel singer, Tope Alabi has come under serious fire and scrutiny after a certain video of her ministration went viral.

Tope Alabi could be seen in the company of her backup singers using a certain ‘word’ while ministering in church and has led traditional worshippers vibing to it and asking the gospel singer to identify with them.

The award-winning singer used the word ‘aboru aboye’, which is a popular phrase used by a particular sect of traditional worshippers to greet each other.

Tope Alabi kept emphasizing the word and while it has become viral with remix videos springing up, netizens have bashed her for using such a phrase in the church of God, while others queried her spirituality. Some however stated that the gospel singer just has a deep sense of Yoruba words.

Not again! Aboru Aboye yes is Yoruba language with a meaning and significant with Isedale (traditionalist).

please, gospel musicians should beware and not bring confusion into the church and Christian community as a whole.

Let’s know where you belong abeg. Oversabi is what is killing us in Nigeria. Abor aboye bawo in the church of God….

I am yet to get over the Ajanaku story o, bcos Tope Alabi is someone I hold in high esteem when it comes to music and gospel and that story really disorganized or messed up my perception about her. Please let me recover fully from that.
