Church receives knocks for inviting Portable, Pasuma to perform at praise night

Singer Portable

A branch of the Celestial Church of Christ has been criticised for inviting Fuji musician Pasuma and artiste Portable to its praise night in Lagos.

The flyer of the event shared via Facebook on Wednesday, had pictures of Pasuma and Portable as guests including another singer May Shua.

The poster generated reactions on Facebook as many slammed the organisers of the program for inviting the secular artistes to the event.

A Facebook user, Bolanle Bamidele Adewuyi, wrote, “This is disheartening… Is this what you turn the Church of God to? It’s hilarious.”

“Tell me this is a joke! Pasuma and Portable…to come and do what exactly?” Okon Umeren Isong asked.

Another commenter, Festus Olanrewaji Ojo wrote, “This is a shame! Shame and a very big shame.”

“This is totally nonsense,” BU KO LA commented.

Ayo Ife wrote, “The artists are not complete yet Una for kuku add Naira Marley so that the soul winning can be complete!”

Edafe Oghenebrume said, “This is a sacrilege in the Celestial Church of Christ. It is disheartening, pathetic, shameful and disgraceful. I wonder about the spiritual orientation of your Shepherd-In-Charge and the congregation.”

“I hope this is not real, if not, what is happening in the body of Christ, Devil has taken control of that church. God will restore it in Jesus mighty name amen,” Onaolapo Benjamin wrote.

“This is a shame! Shame and a very big shame,” Festus Olanrfewaju wrote.

“I was just laughing when I saw this flier…why will u call a hip-hop and Fuji artist for praise night? Is there no gospel singers again? Well, we are enticed with worldly stuff🥲…This nonsense can only happen at white garment churches… Because others churches like Baptist, Redeem, CAC can never do this…. Hmmm! The end of the world,” Eri Tunmise wrote.
