Tope Alabi, the Nigerian gospel singer, has publicly celebrated Soji Alabi, her husband, on the occasion of their 21st wedding anniversary.
In an Instagram post on Tuesday, the 51-year-old music composer also appreciated God for sustaining the union over two decades.
“21 years ago, we took the vow to be together as husband and wife at a time destiny has not even shown up,” she wrote.
“Through the thick and thin and the vicissitudes of life, we are who we are by the Grace of God. I celebrate Jesus for sustaining our home and ministry.
“It is not by power nor by might but by His Mercy and Grace. Ose oo Jesu. HAPPY WEDDING ANNIVERSARY TO US.”
The couple tied the knot in November 2001. The union has been blessed with two daughters.
In June, the ‘Alagbara’ crooner had attracted a wave of backlash on social media after she publicly disapproved ‘Oniduro Mi E Se’, a 2020 gospel song by Adeyinka Alaseyori.
‘Oniduro’ in Yoruba translates to “guarantor”.
Alabi argued to her audience, albeit without calling the singer’s name, that her creator is more than a guarantor as against the wordings of Alaseyori’s now-popular gospel song.
“I liked that song but the day I sang it, the spirit shut me up. God is more than a guarantor. It’s not that I say the song is bad. As songs interact with the spirit, there should be communion before it manifests,” she said in Yoruba.
Reacting to Alabi’s stance, Alaseyori called for calm among her fans, while urging social media users to allow “Jesus to take the wheel”.
