why dignify the average Nigerian's I-Holy-Pass-You comments with a reply Bello ?

My great Abians, as u go out tomorrow to choose the next governor of Abia state, please remember that what made Abia state the worst governed state that it is now was our failure to vote based on d merits of politicians. We voted based on reasons like monetary gift, place of origin etc. Now is d time not to collect money & vote wisely b/c a politician with good visions for his people doesnt need to buy their votes. Every kobo u collect from them, u must repay to them one way or the other if u ever allow them to win.
The Labour party candidate, Chief Emeka Oti Mba has the blue-print of a new Abia state that has set the other party candidates in serious panic.
The Labour party is the party for every Abian that wants to have a say in the governing of Abia state irrespective of whether he is rich or poor, educated or not.
10km roads in every LGA yearly. Integrated state health insurance policy for every Abian. Overhaul of entire Abia security system. Free basic education with plans to introduce at least one free fortified meal daily in primary schools. Massive budgetary attention to the industrialisation of Abia. And most of all, LP has no Godfathers that will be a burden to the govt or that will share the peoples' money. Etc
Vote not just for the now ! Vote for the future and the future of your children.
Long live the Labour Party of Abia state! Long live Abia state ! Long live the Federal republic of Nigeria !
We must learn from our past mistakes.
Abians are wiser now.

Please pass round to every Abian that is tired of how Abia state is being ruled.

The truth be told.... God is no respecter of anyone

You don't sing "Godwin" in a church

Years ago...I went to a church..and they snag "Testimony" by @P square....I shook my head


There is place for GOD

There is place for entertainment



@Korede no one is hating on ur success...
But pls ask urself..
Can u sing this same song while GOD Himself is seated?...I mean.imagine that GOD is seated in church and watching u


Can u go to RCCG camp.and sing Godwin when @Pastor Adeboye is seated?

I HAVE TAKEN MY DECISION

I have decided to vote for a Party that has protected me and made Lagos the safest place in the Country by equipping the Police.

Why are thousands trooping into Lagos on daily basis and not States controlled by the PDP.

What happened to the 7-Point Agenda and the Transformation Agenda. I do not want to experience 4 years of broken promises. A bird in hand is worth 10 in the bush.

If Jimi Agbaje was that good, why has it not reflected in the fortunes of his only company-JK Pharmacy.

The last major road constructed in Lagos by the Federal Government is the 3rd Mainland Bridge. That was done in the 1990s.

I have seen Lagos manage to cope without Federal support. Now, I want to see it flourish and fulfil its potentials with the support of the Government at the centre.

I have decided to vote for APC.

But seriously why are holier than thou xtians complaining? the beat and rhythm of most of the songs they sing in churches are gotten from the so-called secular music, they use the beat of "sekem" and co to form xtian songs and they don't have a problem singing it in church.as long as the guy didn't use any obscene language there's nothing wrong in what he did.

And again I'll say, the Lord Jesus came to die for the unsaved and not the saved. I can't count the numbers of times R.Kelly song "Storm is Over" has been ministered in churches.
The Promises were sounded
The people rebounded
One voice was raised
In melodious praise
As we cast our votes in various states tomorrow
Whose voice will it be?

My dear....u did nothing wrong.

Unknown said...

Korede Bello, there is nothing wrong in u singing or giving ur testimony in church. I particularly like the song. However, there is everything wrong in u ministering from the altar in the House of God. The church is not for performance but for worshipping the Lord. The true worshippers must worship God in spirit and in truth. I hv ntn against u as an artiste, however we need to really fear and respect God nd not always try to change His word to suit our personal interest. God will never compromise His standards, what's wrong in wrong.

He is surely allowed to give testimony in the church but not to glorify his sinful craft in the church! It's just like a prostitute being given 5mins to discuss how to attract customers.

Everything is wrong about it! Despite our sinful ways and shortcomings, church is suppose to be a place where we worship God with heart full of contrition. Not a place where secular artists are admired more than the God they claim to praise. They for allow am bring gals con twerk for the church na. This is why Christianity kept loosing its ground as a religion gradually! Shame!

People need to have an in-depth understanding of who God is. If Jesus was here today, he will cheer on Korede, talk to him about God's love and encourage him to continue singing songs that glorify God. All we do is condemn. If an artist sings a worldly song, we dance at parties, if he comes to church to glorify God then he becomes impure. We the people should do an inward check of how hypocritical we are.

What nonsense! So judgemental,a woman in the bible(a sinner) used her long hair to wipe the feet of Jesus and also pouring oil(which is very expensive) on his feet worshipping him.people around were criticising her and saying that she could ve sold d oil and given d cash to the needy but Jesus told them that they ll always have d needy wit them but nt him...this was a sinner worshipping God! you don't have to be a saint to give God thanks! U have NO RIGHT to judge him and mind you,christianity is a lifestyle and not a religion

Its very wrong 4 him 2 sing in an alter, anyway I blame the person who invited him.
.First consider his history, his music group;they re clearly worldly.

The fact dat some 1 mentions God in his music doesnt mean he is glorifyn God.

Women banging their bum bum and u sing 'Baba God' do bless me....People should really know the God they serve

Am not against you sharing your opinion, just like I try not to say anything about this, cos God knows best. But please try not to complicate issues by saying it's like "giving a prostitute 5minutes to discuss how to attract customers", I disagree with you. I would have over looked it if you said giving a prostitute 5minutes to discuss about God. They said he sang "God win" and not his other songs like "I love naija" etc.

Who is meant to sing in church? You? That has different colours of ladies? Or that spends all your money on women and goes to church empty pocket? Or you that can't sleep without a lady sleeping behind you? Sorry, if I missed some or didn't get exactly the one that seems to be your hobby. And yet you claim to be better than Korede Bello. My dear none of us is without sin, even your so called pastors and priest and believe me, if they have a scale to measure or check those that are meant to step on that podium, believe me 99% of us won't. So please, allow God to judge him. Meanwhile, what gave you the impression that we are doing the right thing on earth? I mean those things we seem to see as right. Do you know if God himself recognizes it as being right? God help me for even saying a word about this.

Unknown said...

Close your dirty mouth! He is God of ALL creations,he was God to the prostitute in the bible,to David the murderer and he is still God to all that accepts him...just imagine yourself calling his creations "bitches" Na you holy pass,cnt u see??? mmmtchewwwwww

@korede, sorry to burst ur bubbles, not dat I dislike u as a person as the reverse is d case but I bet u were paid to "give ur testimony" as u rightly put it (becos I no for sure coz am in d system dat if there's no honorarium, u wouldn't ve made it)
coz I ve not seen any Christian been paid to give testimonies in church instead the reverse is always the case
ur just starting ur journey as an artist so its wise for u to state with clarity where u want to belong and pls stop justifying ur actions instead learn from it and move on.
Thanks

Dia is nothing wrong in dancing shoki,makossa,etigi e.t.c in ur church...it a dance step n u can use dat dance step to praise d lord..the people who invented d dance step didnt tell u its a must to dance it in a club or something...its just about the mindset..if u feel its wrong den to u its wrong...but cleary speaking its just a dancestep n nothing more

Anonymous said...

That a song has 'God' in it does NOT mean it is a gospel song. We have familiarized ourselves so much with God that we use our actions to bring contempt to His Name. 'Godwin' might have good lyrics, but PLEASE restrict it to the secular. In the old testament people were struck dead over the slightest mistakes, this is the dispensation of grace; do NOT take the grace of God for granted. It is not in my place to judge anyone but I have a duty to "buy the truth and sell it not", Proverbs 23:23. Thanks.


BLESS.

Been waiting an opportunity to pass my own comment about this issue. Honestly, there is absolutely nothing wrong in Korede Bello singing or ministering in Church or any religious gathering. A lot of people condemning his act are doing so out of sheer rag and envy for goodwill. And someone told me Korede Bello should not sing in Church cos he's not born again. Who the hell are you to judge a person's Spiritual relationship with God? So many people condemn Godwin and yet do ridiculous things in their closets. Let he who is without sin be the first to cast his stone. Some people are just full of bile. Korede Bello has done nothing wrong by singing Godwin in church and as a matter of fact what do we listen to in a song? Lyrics or the beats. Listen to the lyrics of that song Godwin and tell me where Premarital Sex, Nudity, Stealing, and other evil vices are being encouraged. Some fools leave church and go clubbing, listen and dance to this so-called worldly songs and yet condemn a Guy who has come to church to relate his testimonies to other people. No one has the right to question if he is born again or not. People should learn to remove the plank in their eyes before trying to remove the spec in other people's eyes.

How Retarded can ur last sentence be? Meanwhile who d heck are u to judge whether someone is born again or not. U sit ur God-fprsaken ass down there arguing whether it's good to sing Godwin in church or not. Can anyone tell me where in that song did he say Nudity, Sex, Pornography, and other evil vices should be encouraged. And then someone asked 'was he not paid to give his testimonies '? Ok so Lara George, Timi Dakolo and other Gospel artist will come to ur church to sing for free abi? Some people are just bitter hearted and full of bile. Some idiots leave church and right inside their closets, they do ridiculous and unspeakable acts and yet come out to condemn a Song. Stupid Hypocrites.

Anonymous said...

Because a song had "God" or "Jesus" in it doesn't mean it's to be sang in a church... Hence we can't song Jesus walk - Kanye west on a church just cause the lyric says Jesus walks... A song being played in a church has no place in the house of the lord!! Am shocked nigerians don't see this... Lord have mercy 🙏
