Tope Alabi recently came under heavy criticism after she referred to herself as ‘ebo’ literally meaning sacrifice in one of her songs.
The singer was also heard singing in Yoruba language using the word ‘Aboru Aboye’, a form of greeting among Ifa initiates.
In the viral video, she said: “Abiye ni mi, Oruko mi ni yen. Mo de bo, mo ru, mo ye,” (I am a sacrifice, that’s my name. I am a sacrifice accepted by God, that’s my name).”
The lyrics triggered a flurry of reactions among social media users.
Reacting to the backlash, Tope, who was seen ministering in a white garment church, in a video said: “Aboru Aboye” is a pure Yoruba language and not an exclusive preserve of traditionalists.
