Celestial Church of Christ has stopped the invitation of Afrobeat singer, Habeeb Olalomi Oyegbile, otherwise known as, Portable and popular Fuji musician, Wasiu Alabi Pasuma, to perform at the church’s praise night in Lagos.

The announcement of the singers’ proposed participation had set the social media on fire after it went viral on Wednesday.

Many Nigerians responded to the announcement on social media with a barrage of comments. Some called it disappointing, while others questioned whether the temple of God was becoming a place for amusement.

The leader of the Celestial Church of Christ International Headquarters in Ketu, Olatosho Oshoffa, vehemently disapproved of the invitation.

Oshoffa responded to the poster on his Facebook page, stating that he had notified the parish’s president of the performers’ cancellation from the event.

Oshoffa wrote, “Dear Celestians, I have just had a lengthy conversation with the Shepherd in Charge of the aforementioned Parish. He has promised to amend the posters.

“He has assured me that the aforementioned musicians in question won’t be attending the praise night. Without a doubt, that particular poster is highly unacceptable. God bless CCC. Amen.”
