Gospel Act Tope Alabi and her Spiritual Father Ireti Ajanaku part ways

A dog that is bound for destruction they say will not
hearken to the instruction of the hunter. This much
can be said about one of the most successful Yoruba
gospel musicians, Tope Alabi as she seems to have
fallen out of her spiritual godfather's grace because
she cannot stay off sin and has been falling from one
crisis to the other since the separation last year.
Born Toyin Obayomi, she was rechristened Tope by
her spiritual godfather Prophet Elijah Ireti Ajanaku of
Christ Revival Victory Chapel International, who had
a vision that the reason she had been having many
failed relationships before she met him had to do
with her name. Her situation changed after the
rechristening as she has since been married to Soji
Alabi for years. It would be noted that she had her
18-year-old daughter for a man popularly known as
Sankara before falling out with him after which she
had another relationship with a Yoruba movie
marketer popularly known as Olaoye Films. She had
two daughters for him but one died and just like her
relationship with the first, this also hit the rock
before she later met her current husband, Soji, whom
she is older than.
Tope Alabi, who was initially into the movie industry
before she delved into music has never for once
minced words in attributing her success story to the
fact that she was fortunate to meet the man of God.
However, sometime last year after she was said to
have been dilly-dallying into things that are sinful,
the man of God was said to have invited her and her
husband to worship in his church twice a month. This
we gathered was to checkmate her excesses as she
was alleged to have by that time been sleeping
around, warranting her to state in an interview last
year that pastors were pestering her for sex, whereas
she was alleged to have been caught pants down
with a supposed firebrand pastor with tribal mark
whose nickname has to do with a feared wild animal
generally seen as the king of the wild animals. She
was also alleged to have been having an amorous
affair with a popular hospitality business owner
whose name has almost the same spelling with
Yoruba word for patience and many other men. But
rather than hearken to the words of the man she
sings his praise, she decided to stay away from the
church and this informed the decision of the man of
God to leave her to her own.
The decision became obvious last year during the
church-organized praise concert tagged Praise the
Almighty, which was organized in the church
auditorium in November, as the pastor did not allow
her to perform. Though her picture and that of
Ebenezer Obey were used on the posters and flyers
of the concert, she was blocked from singing even
when artistes that are not as popular as her were
given time to sing. She was said to have made moves
to reconcile with the pastor after the November event
but her moves were rebuffed by the pastor who
wants her to confess her sins to her husband before
anything. And for failing to do this, she has further
been distanced from the man of God as he has
stopped talking about her and this we gathered may
have informed all sorts of things that have been
happening to her. She was said to have lost her
Toyota Sienna car that she bought about a month
earlier to armed robbers on December 25; her studio
and office which was somewhere around Abule Egba
area of Lagos State has also been under lock and
keys since December when the electricity generating
set there developed fault, thereby affecting the
equipment in the studio.
Sources confirmed the whole thing may also have to
do with the way she has been treating her husband.
It was revealed that she is fond of leaving home in
the morning, switching off her phone and not
informing anybody of her whereabouts. She is also
said to have shown no concern to the plight of her
husband's family whose mother, it was gathered,
operates a grinding machine somewhere around Oke-
Ira area of Lagos State while her own mother is living
fine in her Oshodi, Lagos home.
Apart from all these, she was also alleged of
threatening a new music artiste in the church that is
now doing what she has been doing. The lady in
question called Ifemide has been receiving calls from
different people both within and outside the country
telling her that Tope Alabi reported her to them and
that she has threatened to deal with the girl if she
did not leave the church and the pastor. She was also
alleged to be responsible for the decision of Paul Play
not to attend the church because she sees him as a
threat to her plan to hold on to the man of God as
she's not in the process of allowing anybody else to
compete with her for the attention of the pastor, and
it was because of artistes like Paul Play who was
healed of his kidney disease by the Pastor. She was
said to have also been blocking even her friends from
seeing the pastor even when it is obvious they
seriously need prayers.
Though her behavior slighted her Spiritual godfather,
members were of the opinion that despite the man
not pronouncing any negative things on her, the fact
that he has stopped praying for her and the fact that
she refused to leave her sinful ways will give way to
evil to befall her. A close source, however, revealed
that she's making moves to reconcile with the pastor
as it was alleged that she had approached the most
influential Nigerian pastor in the person of the
general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church
of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye to help her beg
her spiritual godfather. It is only a matter of time
before the result is known and this is because of her
