- Nigerian gospel singer, Tope Alabi, has made fans on social media have mixed feelings after a viral video
- The singer was spotted dancing the usual trendy but ‘worldly’ steps that appear to have made some people uncomfortable
- Tope Alabi reacted to the criticism by saying that the video was taken during her father’s burial and that she needed that dance
Dancing is a form of expression and many people let themselves go when they are faced with good music and a relaxing atmosphere.
However, the Nigerian society is just like every other African society where people who are highly placed by others cannot be seen doing certain things in public or it could earn them criticism.
Just recently, a video made the rounds on social media of a popular gospel singer, Tope Alabi, letting herself go and having a good time as she showed off her cool dance steps.
In the short clip, Alabi was seen doing the popular zanku and ‘gbe body e’ moves as she added a bit of ‘galala’ and other steps that are popular amongst youths.

The video apparently left a bitter taste in the mouths of some people and they took to social media to criticise her.
One Adeniji Aderogba Oluwasayo on Facebook shared the video and wrote: “This is Evangelist Tope Alabi oo.. What is this world turns to for God sake. The Tope Alabi I knew 10 years ago is totally different from this one. Hmmmm Ogun Esu gbe 'bon o!”

The minister also got wind of the criticism and she reacted to it in an interview. According to her, she was at her father’s burial and she needed that dance.

In other news, Legit.ng reported that the 14-year-old girl responsible for the now-viral Renegade dance step has been recognised for her work on social media.
YouTuber David Dobrik, Kourtney Kardashian, and her son have all done the Renegade together but sadly none of them acknowledged the choreographer behind the viral dance.
Fourteen-year-old Jalaiah Harmon from Atlanta is behind the dance that went viral after she posted an Instagram video of herself and her friend performing the moves in September 2019.
