A video had earlier surfaced where Minister Tope Alabi condemned the song ”Oniduro mi” which resulted into a controversial backlash on social media.
Oniduro mi was said to have been originally written by an unconfirmed source of which Minister Adeyinka Alaseyori made popular by her cover of it.
There has been reactions including tik tok and Instagram challenges on Oniduro mi.
Here is Minister Shola Allyson who also did a cover on the song response:
Oníìdúró mi, Ẹ ṢÉ ooo!!!
For me and many souls which connect to this song, Oníìdúró mi, we have stories which clearly show that we would have been forgotten long ago if not for the guarantor side of The FATHER that was expressed in our lives…
I commend Yinka Alaseyori for making the song more accessible to souls all over the world and I wish her more help in all her doings. The song tells the story of many of us who had no backing from anyone and none to rest on or be a hiding place as to what our tomorrow would be.
I first heard this song years ago from Mama Bola Are at my home-out-of-home, @agape_pground in Akure and I immediately connected with it because, me, I would have been ridiculed, and deserted and forgotten! The song helps me express my gratitude in that respect very succinctly.
I have come to learn that we understand the concept of GOD differently, depending on how we were “given” and how much we are granted to see as we make effort to dig deeper. And that’s why I live my life devoid of divides which different abilities in understanding breed…

ANGELI MI, Ni ONIDUROMI.
I’ve heard people preach and talk about humility. They gave different interpretations.
It got to a particular time, I decided I was going to check online for the meaning.
This I got.
“Humility is not seeing yourself as someone who is better than another person.”
If I were Tope Alabi, I will just apologise to Yinka Aleseyori. I will tell her I’m sorry for my mistake. A ki mo rin kori ma ji( loosely translated as no matter how you walk carefully, mistake is inevitable)
I won’t see people that are abusing/criticising me as my enemies. I will see them as ANGELI MI, the instrument God wants to use to caution me.
If I were Yinka Aleseyori I will jejely behave like king David, I won’t kill King Saul as his soldiers suggested. I will let her be. I won’t hold Tope’s sin against her. Even if she chooses not to apologise to me I will act like Jesus, my ONIDUROMI.
I will see those who are fighting on my behalf as good friends who really love me. I will also remember human beings can turn the table against me someday. They are shouting Hosanna today, tomorrow, they will crucify me if I should make any mistake.
If I were you my readers, I will learn from what it’s happening now. I will treasure in my heart the word of God that says, HE WHO THINKS HE STANDS SHOULD TAKE HEED LESS HE FALLS.
Friend, choose to be a peacemaker. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.
Let’s pray for both of them, they need our prayers more than before. Ija o dola, oruko lo nso ni( loosely translated as war does not turn to wealth)
I still love you
Keep loving excellence.
