Popular Nigerian Gospel singer, Tope Alabi has been asked by Yoruba traditionalists to identify with them for using their slang.
They were reacting to a viral video of Tope Alabi while ministering in church using their ‘word’.
The award-winning singer used the word ‘Aboru Aboye’, which is a greeting language among traditional worshippers.
Many social media users bashed her for using such words in a church while others queried her spirituality.
One Ccmoney said: “Why are people defending what they can’t? The greeting is limited to only the idol worshippers, most especially the Ogboni confraternity. Aboru Aboye; then the recipient would answer Aboye Bosise. If you’re still doubting this as a Yoruba person, please try to greet your parents by saying Aboru Aboye then come back to give me feedback
