Reacting to the flyer, Celestial Church of Christ, Land of Goshen Cathedral, situated in the Kosofe area of Lagos, has come under fire for inviting Fuji musician Wasiu Alabi Pasuma, and controversial street singer, Habib Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, to a praise night.
The church wrote, “JOIN US ON 15th OF DEC, 2023. As We Celebrate our 7th Anniversary on Our ANKARA/PRAISE NIGHT
