The popular gospel singer has being trending on the Nigeria digital space in the past few days for the wrong reasons, owing to her criticism of the “Oniduro mi” song which was sung by iconic singers, Tolu Adelegan and Yinka Alaseyori, at different times.

Tope Alabi had noted while commenting on the song that God was more than a guarantor to her and that the Holy Spirit cautioned her against doing singing it. This has generated a lot of backlash from gospel music fans on the social media as many people had called for her to apologize for her misbehaviour.

However, in a statement reportedly issued by her today 18th June, 2021., The “Logan Ti O De” crooner finally apologize to the “Oniduro mi” singers, her fans and to all Nigerians. She revealed that a lot of people have been calling her over the issue, noting that she hardly sleeps. She also Stated that Alaseyori is her daughter in ministry and that she truly loves the Oniduro Mi singer.

Tope denied being envious of Alaseyori, adding that the sky is wide enough for everyone to fly. She also confessed that she is not a perfect person yet and still a work in progress in the hands of God. Read excerpts from the statement below: “……I’m being bombarded with calls and visits by Pastors since Monday morning till now. As we speak, another group of Pastors are coming in now. I guess it is because of this same issue. “……I have been inundated with diverse counsel from different quarters.

I hardly sleep since this matter started. While I attend to Nigerian fans on phone calls and online chats in the daytime, our people in the Diaspora will engage me throughout the greater part of the night over the same matter. “…..I’m not a perfect person yet, I’m still a work in progress in the hands of God. I want people to see me as a mere mortal with my own weaknesses, human frailties and as a learner in the limitless knowledge of God. I am who I am today only by the mercy of God and the support of millions of gospel music lovers.

I have no support base elsewhere outside the awesome Nigerians who feel uncomfortable with my statement. I see the depth of anger as the measure of their love, admiration and solid support for me and for all of us in the singing ministry. “Let me acknowledge that my mistake was that I externalised a personal message in public; and I’m awfully sorry for doing that.

My friends, colleagues and leaders in ministry who criticized me either openly or privately simply feel disappointed because of the love we share. We are too knitted in the Body of Christ to allow anything to divide us. Human factor is part of our life. “For those who keep quiet but chose to intercede for us on their knees instead, may God honour them all.

And  for those who defended me even without speaking with me, I can’t appreciate them enough.” “…… Sister Tolu Adelegan is a woman I hold in high esteem. Adeyinka, like I said earlier, is my daughter in ministry, they are all valuable sisters and associates that nothing can separate us. This is a mere fog, it will fade away in no time.“For the comic fellows who are already releasing comedy skits over the matter, I burst into laughter (she laughed again) watching some today. What a creative people we are. Nigerians are awesome minds who will fashion out tension relieving stuff from every situation. …I appreciate them all. The Bible says in Hebrew 12: 14 that we should pursue peace with everybody and holiness, those are the conditions for us to see God. This is the acceptable path for all of us to follow……”
