The pastor made these sentiments during a sermon, saying he saw the demons practising the dance in the realm of the spirit. He said:
“There is this dance that came newly. If you remember, the girls dance this way. I saw that dance in the realm of the spirit. I saw how the demons manufactured that dance style and unleashed it into the atmosphere."
According to ZAlebs, the pastor added that those who practised the dance, which is a top trend on TikTok, have hosted the demon.

"He kills when he says the Lord took him to the umlando dance... pastor was dancing with the Lord."
