According to Alabi, that was a wrong way to describe God because He was so much more than a guarantor.
The video seemed to leave a sour taste in so many people’s mouths as they dragged Tope Alabi on social media with so much zeal.
Nollywood actor, Seun Sean Jimoh, however, had an issue with celebrities in the Yoruba movie industry who were also joining others to drag Tope Alabi.
According to him, a number of them appeared to have a cool relationship with the singer before now. Jimoh said that even though he did not agree with Alabi’s actions, he also did not support other Yoruba celebs joining the debate and throwing shade the singer’s way.
Jimoh said that Tope Alabi made a mistake that every human has been known to do. He said these Yoruba stars did not have to comment on the issue because the gospel singer had been a friend of the industry for years.
