Gospel singer Dunsin Oyekan hits people listening to gospel and secular music, uses Asake's song as example
Popular gospel singer Dunsin Oyekan trended on social media over a funny comment he made about people who listen to secular and gospel music.
Oyekan, during a ministration, said such people are living in a confused state as there was no way they could hear from God.
Excerpts of his words:
“At the end of the year, when people were tagging some of us for their Spotify, Apple review for the year, and the people they listen to, you will see one secular musician. And then you will see Nathaniel Bassey. I’d say what is he doing there?"
