Dunsin Oyekan has challenged confused Christians who listen to both gospel and secular songs
The gospel singer said the confidence of those affected baffles him as they insist they are unapologetically children of God
He went on to cite an example of how some supposed Christians would listen to a song by Nathaniel Bassey after listening to Asake
Popular gospel singer Dunsin Oyekan is trending on social media over a funny comment he made about those who listen to secular and gospel artists.
Oyekan, during a ministration, said such people were living in a confused state as there was no way they could hear from God.
In his words: “At the end of the year, when people were tagging some of us for their Spotify, Apple review for the year, and the people they listen to, you will see one secular musician. And then you will see Nathaniel Bassey. I’d say what is he doing there?
“Your confidence baffles me, how will you hear God, you are living in a confused state. Someone is telling you as it is with the world, another is telling you how it is with God, which one do you want to pick. Nathaniel Bassey does it for me but you just played brother Asake. And you are bold to share it online. Sometimes I look at their profile some of them will write unapologetically a child of God.”

DON: Unfortunately not everyone is meant to understand. He was speaking to a group of people in the church & not everyone cos clearly not everyone can get the message…so don’t beat yourself. If the message is for you, you know yourself
reubensohomagbe: “Music have different genres, you can choose to listen to verities depending on your mood. I don’t understand his take. Cos if we apply this logic to movies, then it gets complicated. You shouldn’t be seeing mission impossible focus on mount zion movies.”
victoronyokere: “Should Christians not listen to Asake and the likes? I’m honestly asking.”
kcemenike: “If Christianity were only by the music we listen to, I would be in the category of Moses the Prophet. The level of sacrifice required, apart from losing your attraction to any music that is not psalms/hymns/spiritual songs ehn, is very high Make GOD dey help person abeg.”
GoodyGoody: There’s this analogy I heard that solves these “ideologies” perfectly. It goes something like:
“if Jesus Christ comes physically to a location, whatever you cannot wear to go and meet Him, whatever you cannot blast from your phone speakers as you meet with Him… IT IS WRONG.”
