Olatosho Oshoffa, the Shepherd-in-charge of the Celestial Church of Christ International Headquarters in Ketu, has expressed strong disapproval over the invitation extended to singers Portable and Pasuma to perform at one of the church branch’s praise nights.
The controversy arose after the Celestial Church of Christ, Land of Goshen in Lagos, shared a flyer on Wednesday promoting its praise night featuring Portable, Pasuma, and May Shua.
The announcement stirred reactions on social media, with some Nigerians expressing disappointment and questioning if places of worship should be used for entertainment purposes.
In response to the public outcry, Oshoffa took to his Facebook page to address the situation. He stated, “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.”
