Tope Alabi – Why I Have To Dance “Gbese”
Popular Nigerian gospel artiste, Tope Alabi known for her edifying gospel messages via her songs has revealed the reason behind her trending video, where she was seen vibing to a gospel song but with a supposedly secular dance step “gbese”.
The artiste who has since been receiving backlash from many followers and those who see her as role model has explained why she needed to dance, and the way she danced.
Speaking in an interview, Tope Alabi stated that she needed that dance at that time. According to the gospel singer, she was dancing at her father’s burial and people with “spiritual eyes” will understand its meaning.
In her words:
“In a nutshell, i needed that dance. It was at my father’s burial. The praise was organized by my gospel artiste friends to worship God after the wake keep. I needed to worship God, I just need to worship. It is not easy to bury your father, some people died before their father. As a spiritual person, you know you need to dance.”
