Sola Allyson is in the mouths of quite a significant number of social media users this December.
In a viral Tik Tok video, Sola Allyson had a soulful worship session before a number of worshippers. In her performance, she was joined on stage by Lateef Adedimeji, a Yoruba Nollywood actor, who recited some Quranic verses in the worship session as the music instruments played on.
A huge number of fans have condemned Sola Allyson for this. The reactors to this oddity showcased by the gospel singer fall into three categories. The first category is of the opinion that Sola Allyson is not a Gospel singer. This group strongly opines that Sola Allyson only sings soulful, romantic and motivational songs.
One of the members of this train of thoughts claimed Yinka Ayefele is another Sola Allyson who is perceived as a Gospel singer but is not. Ayefele once met Davido in Atlanta, and upon his return in Nigeria, sang Davido’s Dami Duro at a concert when they met again. These people see more reasons not to classify Sola Allyson as a Gospel singer because of her acceptance of the Koran in her performance.
The second group is of the take that Sola Allyson should be cancelled because of her recent blushes. While this particular idea was being sold to others, some other fans came out to disapprove it and instead appraise Sola Allyson’s musicality and how her music has always lifted the listeners.
The third group argues that Sola Allyson’s intent for the collaboration with Lateef is to unify the two religions, Christianity and Islam. These people questioned Christianity, Jesus’ teachings on love and his death which is believed to be for all. The question asked by these critics is: if Sola is strongly condemned for her approach to unify the two religions; why then do some Nigerians continue to clamor about disunity?
