In a social media post, the Celestial Church of Christ, Land of Goshen, announced its praise night featuring three guest artistes.
The church revealed that Pasuma, May Shua, and Portable will headline the music concert.
In the now-viral flier, the church said the event, scheduled for December 15, will mark its seventh anniversary.
The announcement has, however, triggered a wave of reactions from some Nigerians online.
Some users took to Facebook to make known their displeasure with the post, describing it as ‘disheartening’.
Others wondered if the “house of God is now a place of entertainment” while asking if the invited artistes would be able to sing spiritual songs at the concert.
Another set of netizens argued that the invitation was extended to the singers to appeal to a part of the church congregation.
“I’m not surprised and I can’t judge my fellow man. This is the celestial doing but we’re not preaching the Gospel with this if I may say. So disheartening,” one user wrote.
Another user commented: “God will have mercy on you people. The House of God is now a place of entertainment.”
Bringing people like Portable, Pasuma and other Fuji artists to perform at churches (especially C&S and Celestial) raises concerns on the kind of Gospel we are preaching. Something needs to be done to revive the image of our churches. pic.twitter.com/e3o536FdZfAdvertisement

Nigerians need to wake and realize that Celestial church is not meant for just a select few. If the church invites Portable and Pasuma to perform, it's because they have a diverse congregation just like the artists they invited. Don't limit the church based on your narrow views.…
