“I have read multiple reactions to the recent outburst of the singer known for her skyscraper scarf on Twitter where she clearly stated, “She is not a member of the Celestial Church of Christ” and from all the reactions I have seen, it is right to say that most Celestians were shocked and the reason for that was because; the medium through which she made that clarification and the manner at which put it somewhat ridiculed the CCC.
She means differently to several people. To some, she is a proud type and doesn’t care whatever damage her statement would cause. Some see her as an epitome of inspiring music but in whichever way you view her, the fact remains that, She has been a household name in the South-Western part of Nigeria for over 20-years after her debut album (Eji Owuro) in 2003.
Many Celestians do not know that our Aunty had left the CCC fold many years ago because they still see her putting on the Celestial Church garment and this to them meant, She is still a member of the fold since a non-member is not supposed to put on the Celestial garment.
Precisely, She was seen at CCC Ketu International on the 12th Sunday, June 2021 having the Celestial choir cape on her (barely a year ago) and she wrote on her wall that she only visited “home” yet her fans in the CCC still didn’t get the message, they relied on the fact that NON-Celestians cannot go that far in terms of dressing or sit the altar section of the church (barricade); not even at the International Headquarters of the church.
For me, if the appropriate quarters at the International Headquarters of the church who were fully aware of the fact that she wasn’t a member any longer could allow such an error to fly then it speaks volumes and it is part of the reason why Celestians are today overreacting over her peaceful and long-aged exit.
Celestians do not feel offended by the clarification she made in response to a tweet that probably could affect her music career since the churches that invite her mostly are pentecostal churches… The clarification was needed in the interest of my career even though it was not handled with care.
Celestians are somewhat shocked that Aunty wa is coming out this clear after the painful demise of our late music director (RIP)… Young Celestians are curious to know why she is speaking in CLEAR TERMS now that baba is gone. Baba Adetiran from the information gathered did his best to bring her back into the fold but it didn’t seem to work out.
Now that baba is gone, she is probably free from the assumed persuasion.
She has the right to worship anywhere. What matters is that she doesn’t miss heaven likewise the rest of us.
I think the majority didn’t like the bad PR she did on the CCC considering the way she submitted her tweet which makes it look as if the CCC is not a Christian denomination.
Celestial Church is not a secret cult where you are forced to join or not free to leave if you so wish.
