The names mentioned above are familiar to everyone within and outside the fold of CCC, these are notable gospel singers whose faces and names have become household items. But beyond this, we would like to shed light on some grey areas as it concerns these personalities.
Evangelist Lanre Teriba, Dare Melody, Busola Oke Eleyele and an Ibadan based Baba-Ara sing-alike, Segun Adewole popularly called Kokoro are fantastic singers. With a verse sense of creativity which has set them miles ahead of other gospel artistes in the country. But one funny question I will ask is what these talented acts are doing in Celestial Church of Christ?
Before now, Lanre Teriba who was born about 40 years ago in Lagos, to the family of late Pa Samuel Oladimeji Awomosu Teriba, was a member of Cherubim and Seraphim. In fact, even after the album that brought him to limelight, he was still an active member of the C&S fold.
Shortly after the first album and while preparing for a follow-up, the popularity he garnered was mostly in Celestial Church, according to the survey, most of the people who engaged him then for events were in the Celestial Church. Of course, it’s only a short-sighted fellow who doesn’t appreciate value, that will jettison gold for silver.
This reminds me of a place in the constitution of the church under Divine Order No 9 ‘Open Air Meeting’ where God gave Papa Oshoffa a vision in an illustration of one Kobo and two Kobo, that only an unwise person will not drop one kobo for two Kobo. Today, the story is coming to fruition because seeing these artistes, Lanre Teriba, Dare Melody, Bu
sola Oke Eleyele, Segun Adewole and others who were members of the Cherubim and Seraphim to have relocated from their root to Celestial Church of Christ speaks volume. Whatever it is, many of such talented artistes continue to join the foray to take the light and shine of CCC beyond boarders in their chosen field of praising Jehovah and winning souls for His kingdom.
Or have you not noticed this movement too?
