Nigerian gospel singer, Lanre Teriba, has now spoken up about the issue between his colleagues in the industry, Tope Alabi and Yinka Alaseyori.
In a trending video on social media that was shared on the singer’s page, he was seen mounting a stage to 'fire shots' at Tope Alabi.
In the short clip, Lanre was initially seen saying some words to Yinka Alaseyori who seemed to be trying to stop him from going on stage.

The male singer however did not listen. He got on stage and sang a few words from the Yinka Alaseyori song that caused the drama, Oniduro Mi.
Then he addressed Alaseyori and told her that some people made mistakes just for her own life to improve beyond its present state. He then proceeded to lead a prayer point where he asked God that people who would ‘misyarn’ for his own glory should quickly do so by His grace.
Not stopping there, Lanre proceeded to throw jabs at one of Tope Alabi’s songs. See the video below:
While a few people commended Teriba for supporting Alaseyori, others said his action was unneeded considering that he was also a gospel musician.
Read some of their comments below:
"There goes the King of Gospel music supporting another upcoming gospel singer ...this man is so humble...I just love your humility sir ."
"Sir, to be honest... This is rubbish , god doesn't like all these things the industry is doing right now."
"But Lanre the babe beg you make u no talk am and you talk am."
"Hmmmm... so u don't like Tope Alabi Again? Abosi inside gospel music industry."
"Thanks for the support bro@lanreteriba,i so much love you and your music@adeyinkaalaseyori."
"You self, retrace your steps back to God. Stop bleaching too. Most of you gospel artist don't have the Holy Spirit in you. What you did on stage is absolutely wrong. This is not the Jesus, you all are claiming to preach. Jesus Christ preach love."
"You are sooo stupid for this. Very uncalled for with rubbish you’ve been singing for years. How dare you disrespect her like that. Gospel musician acting like someone who does not know God. If you hv a personal beef with her go and deal with it don’t use this as an opportunity. People don’t even remember you anymore!!!"
