The invitation of Afrobeat singer Spyro to perform at Pastor Bolaji Idowu’s Harvesters International Christian Center’s Christmas Carol has sparked controversy.
The event, held at the church’s branch in Lekki, Lagos on December 17, 2023, garnered mixed reactions.
In addition to Spyro, other celebrities such as Daniel Effiong, Bisola Ayeola, Dorathy Bachor, Sharon Ooja, Uzor Arukwe, Adeh Gbolahan, and Kenneth Ophopho were also featured on the event’s flier.
Pastor Bolaji Idowu, the lead preacher at the church, had announced the Christmas Carol on his Instagram page with great anticipation.
The preacher had announced it on his Instagram page, with the caption, “Can’t wait for this ! It’s today , starts in less than an hour.”
However, his decision to include worldly practices in a Christian event has drawn criticism from netizens.
It is worth mentioning that a similar incident occurred recently when a Celestial Church invited controversial street rapper Portable and Fuji singer Pasuma to their praise night.
