Olatosho Oshoffa, the Shepherd-in-charge of the Celestial Church of Christ International Headquarters in Ketu, has strongly condemned the invitation extended to singers Portable and Pasuma to perform at one of the church branch’s praise nights.
The Celestial Church of Christ, Land of Goshen in Lagos, had on Wednesday, shared a flyer of its praise night featuring Portable, Pasuma and May Shua.
The announcement, however, triggered a wave of reactions from many Nigerians on social media. While some described it as disheartening, others wondered if the house of God was now a place of entertainment.
Reacting to the controversies on his Facebook page, Oshoffa said, “Dear Celestians, I have just spoken to the Shepherd in Charge of the above Parish at length. He has promised to make amendments to the posters.
“He has promised that the said contested artists would NOT come for the nights. There is no doubt the said poster is very CONDEMNABLE. God bless CCC. Amen.”
