Nigerian gospel singer Lanre Teriba, also known as “Atorise,” has given Prophet Oladele Ogundipe a 24-hour deadline to apologize for his recent comments against Reverend Mother Esther Abimbola Ajayi, also known as Iya Adura.
Videos that emerged online captured the Shepherd-in-Charge of Celestial Church of Christ Global Genesis Parish, Genesis, who took a swipe at Ajayi during a Sunday service programme.
Genesis alleged that Iya Adura had abandoned his family when he was arrested over alleged fraud.
He claimed the highly referenced prayer mother removed all his photos from their official social media pages because he was going through a tough phase.
He also recounted how he had served Iya Adura meritoriously, even to the extent of abandoning his ministry.
While reacting to Genesis’ outburst, Teriba berated him over his rude comments about Iya Adura, while he also issued a 24-hour ultimatum to Genesis to apologize to the woman-cleric.
In a video which he uploaded online on Tuesday, he stated.
“Iya Ajayi is a helper to 95% of all gospel artists in Nigeria… she’s not our age mate, yet you spoke to her in such a manner.
“All I just want to tell you is that the same way you ridiculed that woman, you must also apologize during your next program.
“Please, I give you 24 hours to correct your mistake and apologize to Mama, else I will fight him one on one. I am not a hypocrite and I would tell him the truth…” he stated.
