An Islamic cleric better known as an Alfa is captured on tape quoting the lyrics from one of Seyi Vibez’ hit songs while preaching.
A video making the rounds on social media captured the moment a cleric opted for music lyrics other than Quranic verses to preach to his congregation.
The Alfa could be heard quoting a couple of lines from the lyrics of ‘IQ’ song from the fast-rising singer, Seyi Vibez.
While quoting the second verse of the song, the cleric said;
“tinma kigbee, (I will shout)
Pound sterling, dirham (Pound sterling, dirham)
Sh’owo yi de ma kari? (Will this money go round)
A-A-Aye, ma pami (Life, don’t kill me)
Mo ma jere laala mi (I will reap the fruit of my labour)
Gbogbo oun t’oun dun mi l’adayo (Everything sweeting me with turn to happiness)
Lat’eni, oro mi d’ayo (From today, I speak happiness)
Oh-oh, b’omi shey wo’nu agbon (How water enters the coconut)
K’oma ye enikan kan (No one knows)
We pray to God in different language.”
He continued by encouraging his congregation to hold on tight to the lyrics and not take it lightly.
The video has since sparked mixed reactions on social media as many many applauded the singer for his meaningful lyrics.
