NOLLYWOOD actress, Tonto Dikeh has criticised clergyman, Pastor Tunde Bakare over his recent comments on the late Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba (professionally known as MohBad).
Pastor Bakare, while preaching in Leicester, United Kingdom at a church event on Sunday, chastized the late singer noting that he probably reaped the reward of his actions.
He spoke of the negative effects of his stage name “MohBad,” which means “I am bad,” as well as his friendships with the wrong people.
While speaking on the theme, ‘Harvest’, the former presidential aspirant said, “My wife and I listened to a tape last night on MohBad. How many of you know MohBad? The Nigerian artiste who died at 27?
“When he was drinking and smoking and associating with evil men, he did not know that the harvest would come so soon and that he would soon be cut down at the prime of youth.
“I am not blaming him, I am just telling you. Is MohBad a good name? Moh Bad.
“There was a young man older than I am. He was a driver and his nickname was Èsù (devil). Everywhere he went, people hailed him as Èsù and he would acknowledge them.
“The day he crashed the car and he killed people and they threw him behind jail when he was brought out, he said ‘Méè Sèsù Méè Sèsù (I am not the devil)”, Pastor Bakare said.
In response to his remarks on her Instagram page on Monday, Tonto Dikeh pointed out how Pastor Bakare never addressed the unholy activities of his colleagues but was quick to speak on MohBad’s death.
“Dear Pastor Tunde,” Tonto Dikeh wrote on Instagram on Monday.
“When your colleagues are caught with their pants down in unholy sexual activities, we never hear your voice, you never speak nor preach about them.
“It comes to the death of a boy who is old enough to be your last born, and you say ‘HE REAPED THE REWARD OF HIS ACTIONS.’ What Actions?
“Please, please, please KEEP THE SAME ENERGY with your corrupted colleagues as you just did today. It’s the anointing of God upon your head that’s making me not go off on this LOOSE COMMENT OF YOURS.
“I have learned over the years that if you have nothing nice to say, keep mute (DON’T TALK AT ALL). Preach your gospel and leave MohBad’s name out of your ministration.
“I don’t respect old age; I respect the wisdom you exhibit at old age”.
