Segun Obe, the gospel artiste, has lashed out at people criticising him over his participation in the Nigerian Idol.


Obe, who is a voice trainer in the show, was reacting to the barrage of condemnation that has befallen upon him for participating in the talent hunt reality television show which some critics tagged as “non-Christian.”

In a lengthy Instagram post, the singer encouraged his naysayers to confront him rather than throw subtle shades at him.

Obe also wondered why people who have not gotten their life together are always quick to judge others.


“I usually don’t address issues that fly around cause I am too busy to focus on irrelevant things but I must do this to create some sort of balance…People like to have an opinion about your life and advise other people on their social media pages when their own lives are not ANYWHERE close to perfect, if you will make a post stylishly throwing shades at me cause I am currently working on a (non-christian) project at the moment, please do it to my face or tag me in it so we can talk one to one,” he wrote.

“I am and REMAIN a gospel artist and a devoted christian, my job on the other hand is just that…A JOB, if you turn yourself to ASSISTANT JESUS overnight and feel the need to condemn me in your heart it’s fine, at the end of the day, THE LORD KNOWETH THEM THAT ARE HIS, Thank God that man ain’t God though,”

“I will NEVER address this issue again cause your opinion at the end of the day means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to me. There is therefore now NO CONDEMNATION to those who are in Christ Jesus, if my resent posts irritate you, feel free to use the BLOCK or UNFOLLOW buttons on your device. I know who and whose I am……”


The gospel artiste is the brother of Tunde Obe, another popular singer.

Segun has ministered in several countries all over the world and shared the stage with notable gospel acts such as Dr Panam Percy Paul, Lionel Peterson, Donnie McClurkin, Kirk Franklin, Kurt Carr, Jonathan Nelson, Micah Stampley amongst others.

He also trains individuals and choirs both in Nigeria and abroad.
