According to the cleric, the gospel singer should have handled the situation better by correcting the bride when he saw she had gone out of control.

Father Ukwu backed up his explanation with different Bible verses, including how the disciples immediately stopped people from idolising them.

The priest, who said some ministers have turned themselves into superstars, also claimed Bliss was enjoying the attention in the video.

An extract from his statement read:

"In the trending video, the minister was busy enjoying the show. When you see something that is not right, correct it immediately. Others will also learn from it. The way the lady was so excited, kneeling and hugging the minister even before her husband, was not supposed to be funny. But this is what happens when ministers make themselves superstars."
