The Lead preacher at Harvesters International Christian Center, Pastor Bolaji Idowu faced criticism for inviting the well-known Afrobeat singer, Spyro to perform at the church’s Christmas Carol.
The Christmas Carol, which took place at the Church’s branch in Lekki, Lagos on 17th of December, 2023, caused a flurry of reactions.
For this year’s Carol, in addition to Spyro, other celebrities such as Daniel Effiong, Bisola Ayeola, Dorathy Bachor, Sharon Ooja, Uzor Arukwe, Adeh Gbolahan, and Kenneth Ophopho were also listed on the flier.
The preacher had announced it on his Instagram page, with the caption, “Can’t wait for this ! It’s today , starts in less than an hour.”
Pastor Bolaji Idowu has since been ridiculed by netizens who condemned the idea of mixing worldly practices with Christianity.
