I was so elated reading this from a Celestial Choir Group on Facebook, It shows that, the choir themselves know their onions and wouldn’t want anyone, irrespective of his or her social stand, to put the choir cape in jeopardy.
This note of warning is directed to the entire Celestial artistes who sing be it Gospel Juju, pure Juju or otherwise to desist from wearing the choir cape which should be officially restricted within the four walls of the church or Barricade.
Today, you see a lot of Celestial members wearing that cape to take ‘selfie’ even in their various homes; some will go as far as using that cape which is like a garment of honour to the choristers to be used to advertise Juju artiste’s performance here and there. It’s about time we started putting things right, so that we can be right.
“This is not Celestial Church of Christ choir looks… Please tell Nigerian Gospel Juju musicians in Celestial to present CCC choristers decently… We are Celestial choir, we are not artistes. We are worshipers not entertainers. The cape represents glory of CCC choir so if any singer must wear cape please wear it to portray a moderate look on dressing and make up like Celestial chorister not like an artiste…or don’t wear it and present yourself like an artist as you wish.”
The word, I guess, should be enough for the wise….It’s when Imeko approaches that you see a lot of them display all sorts of things, none of them has ever contributed a Kobo to the growth of the church or to the convocation committee for the annual festival, Imeko but they will all want to come and identify with it. Sometimes, I think we need to sleep and cogitate on how we got to this point. Halleluiah!
