Tope Alabi has reacted to the video of her dancing which has since gone viral on social media.
While she was reacting during an interview with WakeUp Nigeria, a show on TVC, following her criticism by fans during her father’s burial, the popular music star said that she needed to worship God in her way.
“I needed that dance. It was at my father’s burial and the praise was organised by some gospel artists to just worship God,” she said.
I needed to worship God, I just need to. It’s not easy to bury your father. Some people die before their parents. As a spiritual person, you know you need that dance.”
In a now viral video, Alabi is seen doing pop-culture inspired dance steps at her father’s funeral which drew criticisms from people who considered it the dance styles to be ‘wordly’
Alabi, who hails from Ogun State became famous for her soundtracks for Yoruba Nollywood movies.
Her career as a popular gospel singer has flourished in which she later became a born again Christian and switched to gospel music. She is married with children.
