Nigerian gospel artiste, Grace Owolabi, also known as ZionGrace, has urged fellow gospel musicians to stop using ‘worldly vibes’ in their music.
According to her, fusing secular vibes with religious music is like serving God a meal prepared with unclean resources.
Zion said; “Bringing in worldly vibes should be replaced with Christ- honouring vibes. We (gospel artistes) should stop imitating worldly vibes and dance steps. Many of those vibes and dance steps are sourced from the devil. We cannot serve God a meal prepared with unclean resources. He won’t even look at it; let alone receive it. The Bible says we are the ‘salt and light of the world’. It is those in the world that ought to copy us; and not the other way round.”
Speaking in an interview, she however said that she could collaborate with a secular artiste if it was the will of God.
Zion Grace said; “Yes I can work with secular musicians, but only if it is the will of God. I will need to seek the face of God before doing any collaboration; even with gospel artistes. Secular music is different from worldly music. The former conveys ideas, emotions, understanding and convictions that are revealed in God’s characteristics; whereas the latter postulates the ideology, emotions and beliefs of the world.”
In other news, a US-based health professional, Stephenia Omeh has asserted that poor people give birth to kids that grow up envying their peers who have rich parents.
The Nigerian lady who slammed the children of the poor said they should not be envious, rather they be angry at their parents for not struggling to become rich when their mates were putting in effort.
Stephenia, who works in Washington DC, said that it’s mostly applicable to the current generation because in the past, poor kids dreamt of becoming like the rich ones and they were never envious.
She wrote; “Poor people breeds kids that envy rich kids. It’s no one’s fault that your parents chose to breed when others are creating wealth. Your envy will never change your predicament – you better start learning from rich people like am doing now.
When I was growing up – we were not that envious of successful people, rather, we wanted to become successful like them. But this new generation of poor people are very ENVIOUS of successful people and will not think twice to k**l that successful individual. Envious Generation!”
